I know I don’t only speak for myself when I say New Years Eve is overrated. It’s always just too predictable. Don’t know if I’m just getting old, or if the night has lost its ‘cool’ – verdict is still out. This year, my boyfriend, two friends and I decided to go to Gaansbaai for NYE. (Best decision ever)

Gaansbaai is a small fishing town a little over 2 hours outside of Cape Town. It’s a charming town with most activities centered around nature, i.e – whale watching and shark cage diving and beautiful cave hikes.

We did none of that. Our aim for this leg of our holiday was to just Eat. Sleep.Beach. Relax. And that’s exactly what we did, in that order. On New Years Eve we all had dinner around 9 o clock, then fell asleep while watching a movie. At 11.45 when the alarm rang, we all woke up in a daze, poured a glass of champagne, toasted to the new year and went straight back to sleep. My best New Years to date.x
