I admit, it has been some time and I am seriously guilty of not spending enough time over here to keep my site going with all the latest news from my travels. As with many of us, our best intentions are not always followed and projects we start may not finished. One of my 2016 plans will be to work a lot harder on this site and ensure my family and friends stay updated with all of my adventures.
As you will know, if you have been here before I am from the great city of London but have been spending a large amount of my time in SA. This has probably been the most awesome time of my life and I would recommend anyone who is looking for a nice holiday to consider adding Cape Town to the list. There is so much to do here and it is really cheap for most Europeans.
The video above will give you some visual insight, but, take my word for it – the holiday will be awesome!
So, as much as I keep trying to party my life away I have noticed that the older I get the harder it becomes to keep at it. The thought of being drunk in a nightclub at 3am these days gives me the shivers so I guess I finally have to resign myself to the idea that I am getting older and I can’t keep up like I used to be able to.
This leads me to the next question, when I eventually decide to settle where will it be?
This is a tough one, as much as I would love to enjoy the lifestyle and money that comes with London I do feel as though I could get lost in the beauty of the Cape. I am still not sure – I guess only time will tell but hopefully I will decide fairly soon.
Christmas is the big one for me, even now as I get older! If any of you out there are reading this then please get in touch as I haven’t formally decided where I will go yet. There is also the contact form if you don’t have my latest details – hope to be on here soon with some super party Christmas pics!
I recently attended a party at one of the more upmarket areas of Cape Town where you will generally find anything from business men to well known TV show and radio personalities. I was invited by a good friend of mine who is know for being well connected in the circles of people that tend to frequent these types of events.
On arrival I was impressed with size of the home and you could only imagine that it cost millions for the area it was in. As with many upmarket South African homes it was fully equipped with all the latest gadgets including a bar, swimming pool and jacuzzi – all of which had an amazing view of the mountain. The party looked like any typical gathering like this with all the expensive cars outside and most of the guests in expensive designer clothing.
I enjoy this type of even, it makes you feel rather important in the world and a level above everyone else. There was plenty of food and the drinks were flowing so you really couldn’t help but to have a great time.
Later on in the night my friend introduced me to a couple of people that were friends of the owner. We had a drink together and they seemed like good fun to hang out with. After a while one of the said to me he had something to show me in the house and I must follow him to have a look. Initially, I thought it was a bit strange but my friend nodded so off we went. The house had a massive basement which was part wine cellar and part…. well – a full on area covered with the finest weed plants you ever saw. The whole area was professionally built with trays and special indoor plant lighting with an irrigation system. Apparently, the whole ran on timers and was fully automatic!
It really is amazing what people get up to behind closed doors, I reckon the amount in that house would fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars in the US but deep in a basement in South Africa it is nothing out of the ordinary. The whole thing would be illegal but most of the locals smoke it anyway so nobody really cares.
I guess it doesn’t mean a whole lot if you are reading this but I was quite amazed and thought it was worth a mention!
Hey, welcome to Party Time! This blog will follow my escapades as a party animal. There is nothing better in this world than a good party with the wine flowing and everyone enjoying themselves. One thing I hate about parties is the drugs though, this website will be about people enjoying themselves with nothing stronger than a drink!
I have lived in several different countries over the last ten years and I was lucky enough to have fun in most of them, the ones with the warmer climates are definitely the place to go if you want to party! I spent some time in London and it just isn’t the same as sitting on the beach with a cocktail!
The other passion in my life is golf and I have managed to lower my handicap down to a solid 4 right now, warmer climates really do help with maintaining a golf swing. I did spend some time with a mate in London who had a golf simulator set up and that was a brilliant way to work on my swing. Playing on his Optishot gave my swing the boost it needed to get from a 6 handicap down to a 4. If you have the cash and the space at home then I would highly recommend making the investment. One of the benefits is the swing feedback you get after each shot, you can easily see what is up with your swing and what areas you need to focus on. I am currently spending some time in South Africa and this is the perfect place to play golf, they have some awesome courses as well as the perfect weather right throughout the year!
Anyway, partying in South Africa is amazing and you have to try and get down to Cape Town. This is wine country and everyone is outdoors enjoying wine with sunsets and amazing scenery. Sitting on top of table mountain at sundown with a bottle of pinotage cannot be beaten! I will post some more about Cape Town in the coming months as I plan to spend at least another six months here. Check out this video to get an idea of the views!
Although this blog is really aimed at my friends and family please feel free to drop me a line if you have to arrive here, and let me know where you are partying right now! If you happen to be in Cape Town then let me know what you are up to!
