View from Lion's Head mountain
There's something magical about Cape Town. 

I've long heard of this magic from friends and read about it on social media. For the first time, I got to experience this magic first hand. 

During my 2-day stay at the new SunSquare City Bowl, I got the chance to really get stuck in and enjoy all that the city has to offer. One of the highlights of my stay was my visit to the Lion's Head, a popular mountain located between Table Mountain and Signal Hill.  This peak, which is part of the Table Mountain National Park, is popular for how it offers one of the most stunning views of Cape Town. 

When my tour guide took me up, the weather looked a bit tricky. She warned that the weather in Cape Town was typically inconsistent and it could either grow warmer or stay cloudy and possibly rain.

And so to cover my bases, I wore my hoodie and took along a vest just in case it got a bit hot. On our way up I got to enjoy some incredible views. Camps Bay was down below, Robben Island was beyond the horizon, and the beautiful city was in full view.  We didn't quite reach the top of Lion's Head due to time constraints. 

On our way back down, we decided to stop for some pics.  This was one of them...
