TheMotorist visits Crossley and Webb Cape Town

Can I get two V8’s in my coffee please?

It was by accident that I stumbled on this place, here’s a short prologue as to why. To put it simply, I ran out of accommodation throughout my holiday. What happened was that I was kindly asked to house sit a home in beautiful Cape Town during the holiday season. As any sane person would, I agreed. This is only because the location of the house that I was asked to sit was as mentioned, in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I generally don’t like house sitting, the awkwardness of another person’s home is often too much for me to handle. The smell of the bedding, the towels, the crockery, although always cleaned in preparation is just not the same as your own. So as I booked for my ticket, I clicked in the dates of my departure and the date of my return. “Hmm” I thought to myself, why does it cost thrice the amount to return home than it does to fly there? I questioned. Moving my return flight by three days later I noticed a substantial drop in price, so I decided to book. The only problem was that for those three days I had to either pay December rates for a hotel or ask to stay with one of the many friends I have that reside in the Cape, I chose the latter.
