Places to visit

Rhodes Memorial

I probably put many photographers to shame but not visiting Rhodes a very popular tourist location. I obviously drove past it many times, but I had no clue how to get there. So I finally had the (time) and chance to go around there. In all honesty, the view is absolutely breathtaking, photographs don’t do any justice. There’s a calming to looking out and just seeing how big the city is.  If you have the time, take a drive and go experience it for yourself. I sat and watched the view quietly for a couple of I minutes then made my way up the stairs. They are seriously huge, more like a crazy leg work out to get to the top (I’m probably exaggerating lol but okay) you get what I mean.


Cecil John Rhodes nose had been vandalized but the pillars are so majestic, and beautiful, just the size itself is magnificent. I absolutely loved being there, and couldn’t believe I’ve missed the opportunity to see this sooner. I can just imagine how stunning It was with the Athlone power stations cooling towers (Athlone Towers) back in the day. Anyway, there’s a restaurant behind the site, but I am always more keen to explore, so we walked around and photographed one another along the mountains and trees.

If you haven’t been there, do take the time and go see our beautiful city at large, you won’t regret it.
