I spent 10 straight days living in Istanbul, didn't leave the city, and instead just tried to soak in the local scene. As always, most of my time was slowly meandering through the city, eating and drinking along the way.
Cape Town was stunning. I didn't expect it. An absolutely beautiful city on the coast, surrounded by incredible natural experiences. Spend a few days in the town, then venture down the coast and then northeast to the winelands. So much to do, it's hard to leave.
