White hair

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. 
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" 
Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

So when people from other parts of the world confirm this belief, we feel proud that our opinion is based on fact. Prestigious UK newspaper, The Telegraph held a vote for their 2015-16 Telegraph Travel Awards. According to the publication, 75 000 readers voted for their favourite destinations, airlines, tour operators and so forth. Not only was Cape Town voted the best City, it has won this honour for the fourth consecutive year. That means our standard as a world-class city and holiday destination has not dropped.

The second place went to Vancouver (Canada), and Venice (Italy) came in third. South Africa was voted third best country in the world, which is another impressive feather in our cap. We were succeeded by Maldives and New Zealand, who came in second and first respectively. This year we have already seen Camps Bay make Trip Advisors World’s Best Beach list. Truth Coffee Roasting was named The Telegraphs’ best coffee shop and Table Mountain and Cape Point saw a significant rise in visitors.
