So long 2015, thanks for the talk

At the end of every year I like to reflect on the what's happened in the last 12 months and look forward to what the future might hold.  I think 2015 was the year in which I experienced the most personal growth.  In an effort to become a little wiser, here are the top 5 life lessons I'll be taking with me into 2016. They sound so simple, but of course I had to learn them for myself... the hard way.

Take a hike up Table Mountain

Being a coastal city, the weather can change very quickly in Cape Town, which is why when Table Mountain is clear, you've just got to go for it.  So shrug off that hangover and rub the sleep deprivation from your eyes,  you're going hiking!

Cheetah Outreach

Ever make a spontaneous decision and end up petting a cheetah? I hadn't either until one glorious day in Cape Town.  In the morning I met some new friends at the breakfast table and joined on their hike up Table Mountain.  At the top we were enjoying a well-deserved snack and some one asked if anyone wanted to go see the cheetahs.  Of course, we all said yes.   Now, how to get to Sommerset West? We serendipitously found a van taxi waiting on the mountain willing to make the hour long drive, wait for us and bring us back into town.
