Happiness in Cape Town - Sunflower Stop Backpackers

1:00 pm

Welcome to Sunflower Stop Backpackers
When I think of Sunflowers, I imagine a happy field filled with sunflowers and myself running through the field with no worry in the world. In my life, sunflowers symbolise happiness.

Welcome to the Sunflower Stop – a home for travellers and backpackers.
Sunflower in my books has to be one of Cape Towns’ happiest places. This has been my home for the first two days of my adventure. The backpackers is situated on Main Road in Green point, it really is easy to find. I am just geographically challenged even when armed with a GPS.

It is also centrally located –
·         5mintute walk to Sea point.
·         2 minutes to Green Point Stadium (It really is across the road)
·         10 minute walk to the V & A Waterfront
·         Getting to town is also simple as you catch a taxi on main road just outside the gate. The  
taxi to Town is R7 and it is a 10 minute ride. ***Please note that this is a taxi and not a cab. Although I opted to walk to town, it is a pleasant 25 – 30minute walk. Save your R7 and buy yourself a popsicle somewhere on long street.

Some of the activities on offer.
There is something about this part of Cape Town that feels very safe. You can also put on your headsets and just walk without having to feel like you have to constantly look over your shoulder.
I have seen people go for walks after dark as well, I would advise after 8pm in the summer – Call a cab.

The kitchen
What can you expect from Sunflower Stop:
·         A well equipped kitchen to test your culinary skills or to attempt your moms’ cooking when you are home sick.
·         A crystal clear swimming pool at the courtyard – You can also take some time to catch a tan around the pool
·         A living room with a huge flatsceen tv and books for you to read and put back when done
·         And of course my favourite, A fully stocked licensed bar.
Right here is where most of the evenings were spent and together with all the backpackers, we became family.
·         Then there is the team that runs Sunflower Stop. A kaleidoscope of personalities - The funniest, warmest and most welcoming family.

Thank you Sunflower Stop for having me.
Thank you for being my home and for the warm welcome.

Take time to dip your feet in the water and to catch a tan
