100 Marvellous Things to Do During Winter in Cape Town and Surrounds
A swashbuckling word-nerd and life-time student of the creative edge, Alessandro spends his time cooking up funky stories and getting his teeth kicked out at Thai Boxing. His geekiness comes in useful where he gets put to work fashioning digital content that sizzles. When not searching for the perfect metaphor, Alessandro hunts for the quirky, the arresting and the powerful, since following Dr Seuss’ maxim you gotta:
“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the THINKS you can think up if only you try!”
“Like snowflakes, the human pattern is never cast twice. We are uncommonly and marvellously intricate in thought and action.”~ Alice Childress.
As winter brushes her blue cheeks across Capetonian skies, come and discover how people have weaved their lives through the tip of Africa, as you encounter both the uncommon and marvellous, from flames of restaurant fireplaces to dancing leaves in the Winelands, from the intricate tastes of coffee in art galleries to the smells of the great Atlantic crashing against Cape Point. Here are our top 100 things to do in Winter in Cape Town and surrounds.
