Western Cape Vacation {part 1}

The first week of October my cousin, Carmen and I flew to Cape Town to join her mum and dad at their lovely beach house in Hermanus. Best vacations in the world is in the Western Cape, it’s extremely beautiful and there’s tons to see and do around every corner. Luckily when my cousin and I arrived in Hermanus it was the Whale fest which happens each year the first weekend of October and boy, we did see a whole lot of whales during our vacation.

The view from our all time favourite restaurant in Hermanus, Just Pure. Such a beautiful little shop too. They sell face-wash, creams, ect, and the best of all everything is hand-made and organic. The restaurant’s food is amazing like you can only guess…

I have to admit, I  developed a special bond with Hermanus, and I wouldn’t mind living in that gorgeous little town.
