The Travel

A Romantic View

Northcliff Tower

For Beginner Couple goals

I have spent the better half or let me actually say the entirety of my life assuming that the best view for a sunset was the Camps bay view in summer, man I was wrong and I’m so glad I was, one of the very few times that i like to be proven wrong.

My eyes have been recently introduced to the Beauty that is the view from the north cliff water tower in … well Northcliff..duh, again Gauteng is showing me just how ignorant I have been about SA Tourism.

The place has an insane view of Johannesburg as a whole, all the way from Midrand to the Ticket pro dome, you can see it all, and if your there at the right time you might be lucky enough to catch the sun go down on our beloved Joburg,

Beautiful spot for romantic picnicking and telling your significant other that they are the reason the place is beautiful (yeah right) did I mention that it costs zero rands to get in and get your view on? Yes I said free, I went twice in winter and both times I put up with the cold air because the view was worth it! It’s a cheap date, it’s super photogenic and worth the short trip, pack your fave snacks and drinks, grab your friends or the person your trying to impress and make an afternoon of it!

A Mistake

Hooters

Also on one of my travels…inside Joburg ..where I live, I found myself in another American born eatery, well the Fourways South Africa version anyway, expectations were high, I was looking forward to seeing scantly clad ladies with big boobies serving up fresh hot saucy wings and drinks!!

Seeing as the place is so well known for their wings and me being a wing connoisseur myself i ordered the original hooters wings, the flavour that made them famous 30 years ago and some chili cheese fries, after waiting about 45 minutes for the wings ( no fries with them ) they were cold, decided to stay calm and I told the server she disappeared with them and came back 5 minutes later with lukewarm wings and finally the chili fries which were piping hot, still disappointed but starving so I dug in expecting fireworks and they kind of tasted ordinary ( I believe I already mentioned that I was a wing connoisseur) all i could think was that American Tv has sold me so many dreams about food, I gave the coffee a chance, the Pizza, the donuts too, but I draw the line at disappointing chicken, that’s it i’m done, bring on the chesa nyama…… i’m so upset.

I was in Secunda recently to meet up with my best friends from childhood, had an amazing time catching up and laughing at each other while sipping on cocktails at this quaint place called Symphony’s Cafe, yes it is the middle of winter and yes I had a frozen margarita, worth the brain freeze and the shivering, it was delicious, simply put, it was one of the best I have ever had, it was salt rimmed heaven, zesty with the right amount of mint, definitely top 10.
