I haven’t taken a real vacation in 3 years, so the time has come. Since my entire family lives in South Africa the natural choice is to go back home, so in March I’ll be taking a much needed break to visit the place where I was born and raised.
I feel lucky to have grown up in Cape Town, a city that will always give me unbounded comfort and inspiration. I literally couldn’t sleep the night after I booked my flights. Aahhh…to be in the presence of my parents & brothers, to connect with people that I adore, to soak up the vibe, as well as the sublime natural beauty of the place…
Not much will be planned before I go (that’s the way things roll in Cape Town), except for a little bit of this:
Yes, I’m excited. And as a designer I can’t wait to pick up on all the creative energy, and I am delighted to remind all of you that Cape Town has been nominated as the World Design Capital 2014. Needless to say I’ll come back to Chicago fully charged and ready to plan the next trip back.
Thank you, Andrew Brauteseth, for allowing me to share your magnificent photography. I owe you a glass of wine my friend.
