9:46 am
side of but again, this is the side where we saw the festa rebuilding. we also saw the bar code, which is where the slaves were kept. so now we're going to the point of no return, enforceable, or we have to cross over this law going here. i get to the other side as well. we see the point of no return point of no return is a point where once lives get to the can come back any more lose. the point of no return is the final spot westlake leave. the shores of lagos, nigeria never to return. this is the route of the walk for the same place. yeah. where we are walking while i am, the slaves gets here. this is where the board, the ships take them all the way to europe on orders that are countries that are being sold. the building at the point of no return was built in the secular ship to represent the return to africa. it's, it's all know, with multiple windows made to give a great view of the point where to slip ships with dr. abolition of slave trading. i just started in $1885.00 and will eventually finalize in 1950, taking a trip to bug you was
9:47 am
a bit us with the experience better because walk in the same part of the slaves brought painful feelings to my trying to imagine the pain or suffering they would have gone through was very never ok. so it's because he was a privilege to travel through time and it's all like buggy and learn about the history of those that came before us. legacy is so diverse and it has so much history and a vibrant cojo. it is an amazing place. leave and explore is filled with so much energy and a lot of people from different walks of life. one of the most populous scenes, legal showers recite, is if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. ah, finally, we go to south africa, wine, water, and space. but he doesn't report an adrian cliche. the landscape around cape town is one thing about ho motorcyclists. paradise. welcome to cape town, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. today i will take you on the rights
9:48 am
to show you my 3 most favorites routes in and around. cape town, we're starting right here in how it's bay in the harbor. great place to grab some fresh fish and energy before heading over there to chapman's peak rice with ah, the chapman stick. his name's afterwards on chapman captain's made of an english ship that failed into how to be in 16 o 7. he would center shore to find provision, not knowing it would one day be the location of one of the world's most famous route. in 1915 contraction started on the steep slopes 7 years later, the road was opened. what an amazing view. and you have so many different viewing points there where you can just stop and basically spend the whole day enjoying the view. and what's really cool, it's changing all the time where the weather change,
9:49 am
the clouds and changing sun is coming out. sun is moving. it's just awesome. just make sure you take some snacks with your picnic walks. there are no restaurants and shopping along the way. chapman drive, also known as champions amongst the locals, is a 9 kilometer long drive along the coast. it also forms part of 2 big spots. even the 2 oceans marathon and the k sound cycle to come into to around 35000 bicycles passed by here. the road has 114 curves, right between the ocean and the cliffs. they have been some rough volt and landslides in the past, so keep your eyes on the street and drive. so this is where you arrive in the end of the dr. beautiful, not to beach right next to not. so if you can see it very long as beautiful, then normally you would see more. but as i told you earlier, the weather is changing all the time. you know, it's even drizzling a bit and all the clouds came up. so that's the reason why i will not jump into the water for refreshment. today is ice cold anyway, the water, some people though,
9:50 am
are daring. they're in there in case you are planning to do it. go ahead, but be aware of the rip currents. you've got to be a good swimmer. if you're out in the water there, we are heading to our next destination now to another beautiful route. a little bit outside of cape. all right, let's get ready for a route number to bend. clue pass between the towns of wellington and sir it's round about one of the half hours from cape town by road. it was named. you guessed that after the guy who built it, andrew bane, but he obviously did not do most of the hard work. yes, he was the road engineer. it is a fine piece of road engineering, but most of the work, like i said, ma'am speak was done by convicts who were forced to do the hard labor. many of them died, the road was opened in 1854 last time i got here. it was a bit bumpy and narrow so you could feel it all. that's the looks like the summarize
9:51 am
the most exciting part of this mountain passes about 800 kilometers long. it is quite a narrow road and landscape is amazing. no wonder it is labeled and national monument read close due to maintenance work, at least part of constructing road. yes. we will be able to see the 1st part of this one, and the entire part is scheduled to be reopened in june, but perhaps be smarter than me and check before you get here. it was supposed to have reopened a long time ago. well, this is fortunes, bridge and nice to have a break and enjoy the beautiful scenery and the stream that is passing through here it is also the place where the lineage back hiking trail is passing through. it's a 2 to 3 day hike through the limits, back nature reserve and i, it's a beautiful hike with rock pools along the way, as well as a nice camping spot where you can stay overnight. as i said, i just heard about it and it's still on my to do list. i still have to come back to
9:52 am
do that. i actually in winter the high mountain peaks are sometimes kept with snow and in summer it gets extremely hot and dry. after the mist earlier, the sun, this burning highlight of this tour is along the way to the river that flows down here. so you just stop and make sure you're jumping into the crystal clear water. find one of the re a parking spots along here. make sure you park properly because the road is very narrow and then it's just like 2 minutes i found where you can refresh yourself, which is obviously amazing on a hot day like today. ah, my best idea today were certainly to bring along my swimming get more than 30 degrees on the bike. it can get really out with all the protective here. but now if you come down here, you forget about all of that. look at this wonderful views, the wonderful water. just wait for me to jump
9:53 am
on. i was one of the construction workers out there to sit down. you know what? i start wrapping up my band school pass writes on the way back. you can stop at one of the wine estates along the way, which i also open for visiting. i am heading to my favorite route friendship. it starts at the the what is give them the largest lake in the region, provide water for half of cape town. soon afterward, the long, deep and dramatic scenery. stout's it was south africa's food properly engineered roads. who's if you can try to come here during the week though,
9:54 am
it gets quite busy on weekend. ah, if you are lucky, you will come across some of the woods along your way. 20 years ago, the cape and inside the boon population was heading to extinction. but luckily that has changed though, enjoy the time, watch them observe them, but remember they are wild animals, so be careful. they can be dangerous. sometimes they are snatching food, even bags and cameras to be very careful and please don't feed them. you can see that even installed special dustbins along the way, way you can throw your stuff and they have a boon protector here so they can just open it. ah, if you chance with a magnificent pass, you will reach another highlight. ah, from here you have this fantastic view on friendship. i could spend hours see less
9:55 am
than 20000 people live down there, but it's still one of the most popular tourist destination. in south africa, friendship means french corner and a free concert. this is exactly how it feels like down there. you have a little bit of friends. ah, i enjoyed the right down from the mountains to the friendship valley home to some amazing restaurants. and ah, so we spent much more time than actually planned on the past because it's just so beautiful and it's so much fun to drive through these curvy roads. we got to town right on time for sundown, which we're having here right now at a small restaurant in the city center. that's actually the major challenge when you get to friendship to decide where you want to go. there are so many wind farms and
9:56 am
restaurants. it makes it very difficult to decide. so i had a really great time on these 3 different scenic routes. i hope you enjoyed it as well until next time jesus ah ah, ah ah, ah, with
9:57 am
