Good day,

Taking a helicopter tour of Cape Town, South Africa the other day was probably one of the coolest things I’ve ever done and it came as a complete surprise! After visiting Robben Island, it was time for sushi at aka “Fine Purveyors of Sea Food” and we basically went to town, ordering everything that lived in the sea and more. If you follow this blog, you know that I’m a huge fan of seafood and at one point remember saying “I think this is the best day of my life”, that was before the helicopter tour of Cape Town…

After lunch we headed to the van for a “surprise” and about 2 minutes later we were there. Someone said “We’re going on a helicopter ride”  and I thought they were crazy, then I realized that yes, we really were going on helicopter tour… Madness broke out and the entire crew of bloggers reverted back to their 7 year old selves the moment they ran downstairs on Christmas and saw what Santa had brought.  Things like helicopter tours typically don’t happen, let alone as an afternoon surprise…

We went on the tour with  and it lasted roughly 20 minutes. It’s basically a compressed yet extended tour similar to the one we took the other day in the post “Day Tour of Cape Town“, only this one was from 2000 feet. It was ‘s birthday and she’s the only lady so naturally we let her grab the front seat. Nate and had good camera equipment and grabbed the land side while myself and my man from took ocean side. I saw Ryan’s footage today and it is amazing. Will be buying a GoPro in the not too distant future, I digress…

This footage is a bit choppy as I’m leaning over Ryan to capture it and filmed with an iPhone 4. That said, it gives you an idea of the tour and a teaser of what you’ll see should you opt for such an activity. The tour seems to be quite popular as when we were landing, other groups were going up while others were getting briefed. The views were some of the most spectacular I’ve seen in my life and travels through 43 countries. The images will forever be burnt into my psyche and if you can swing it while in Cape Town, highly recommended.

Afterward we headed to the which boasts the slogan “Where grand-chic meets retro romance…” and it’s pretty accurate. The place is situated ocean-side and had a very lively vibe to it with a whole array of interesting and classy people from around the world. Considering we had not eaten enough seafood at lunch, myself and decided to get their famous” mixed seafood platter for two” which could also read “mixed seafood platter for 20”. It was delicious and everything was eaten except a few morsels of fish that simply couldn’t find a spot in the seafood parking lots that were our stomachs.

Call it intuition but that day really may have been the best day of my life, if not definitely one of the most memorable…

Tips hat,

P.S: Who would of thought taking a chance to follow my dreams in 2009 would lead me here!? You’ll never know unless you go…
