    Cape Town Travel

    Gummie Adventures



    About two weeks ago Dylan and I did something we’ve always wanted to do in Cape Town! Jump off signal hill!

    If you live in or have visited Cape Town, you see the paragliders all the time… gliding down, gracefully from Lion’s Head or Signal Hill, and you always think ‘I’m definitely going to do that… one day!”.

    Well, even though we live here now, it’s still fun playing tourist and doing all the cool things this city has to offer!

    Our busy season is over and we have a whole bucket list of things we want to do in the Cape and it’s time to start ticking them off.

    Enter Gummie, a super-rad travel site that offers curated experiences in Cape Town (and Joburg!).

    Go peruse their site for local foodie experiences, adventures and tours.


    Soo paragliding off signal hill: Check!

    Currently on my Gummie bucket list:

    • 2 day Glamping experience (how cool is that teepee below?)
    • Ocean kayaking
    • and the Bo-Kaap cooking tour.
