I was packing everything I thought I needed like phone chargers and headphones. But, I was missing other crucial items that slipped my mind.

I totally understand that travel comes in many forms and you don’t have to part ways with your job to travel.

    10 Things You Must Do in Cape Town, South Africa

    Oh, Cape Town! Where do I even begin? I visited Cape Town for the first time a year ago and instantly fell in love. There’s just something about that city that captivates you.

When people ask us what our favorite city is, we always answer “Cape Town.” We actually packed our bags and moved to Cape Town for three months not too long ago. That’s how much I adore this city. If you’re heading to Cape Town soon, here are ten things…
