South Africa has always had a special place in my heart since I first visited it. Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban ... I have been loving all these places, the local food, the nature, the people. It was already my second time in Cape Town, but since I haven't done much during my first visit because of the bad weather, I was very happy to go there again. It is summer there now, which means nice sunny weather and a day light till late hours which is perfect for exploring any new place. 

There are certain activities that every crew does at each destination. So if it is your first time, you already know where you can go and enjoy your time. In Cape Town particularly, crew goes to hike up the Table Mountain, they go see the penguins, the visit the Cape Point or just have local wine and some delicious steak. 


At the end of November, my mum came to Dubai for couple of days. It was right after my annual exams which we have to take every year (obviously) to be able to fly again for another year. I successfully passed all of them so I could enjoy the days with my mum to the fullest. 

Since it was my mum's third time in Dubai, it becomes harder and harder to come up with a list of activities and sights for her. It was also uncertain whether she would make it on board the plane or not because her ticket was waitlisted so I couldn't really plan anything in advance. Almost at last minute, she was accepted on board and it made me so happy that we wouldn't loose a day together.
