Highly subjective takes on life’s most interesting experiences.


The most dramatic sunset?

Cape Town, South Africa, has the most dramatic sunsets. The sunset is so beautiful that locals actually host “sundowners,” which is when people gather by the beach, at a bar, or even on the mountain to have a drink and watch the sunset together. The combination of huge mountains and beautiful blue waters set against these beautiful orange, purple, and pink hues is something I’ve never experienced in any other city, and is truly unforgettable.

I usually watch the sunset over dinner in Camps Bay at one of my favorite restaurants, Zenzero. It’s right on the beach so it’s unobstructed views. If I’m not there, I’m watching the sunset down the street at Clifton Beach at another one of my favorite restaurants, The Bungalow. My idea of a great sundowner is enjoying seafood by the water with good company.
