About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

SOUTH AFRICA, Chapman's Peak

Hiking to Chapman's Peak from Houk Bay

February 3, 2013

Purchased a hop on hop off ticket to visit the coast area around Cape Town. The bus is a double decker and you can hop on and hop off and any of the listed sights. I only got off at The Wharf at Houk Bay and then walked up to Chapman's Peak. It took about 3 hours in total from The Wharf but the hike up was not very hard. Lot of people driving it and hiking up. It has 114 curves from the bottom to the top. The views were amazing. Houk Bay is also famous for the surfing. During the surfing competition the waves get over 60 feet high. Add that to absolutely freezing water and few Great White Sharks I will not add this to my bucket list.
