For @passionpassport‘s #PPWorldOceanDay challenge // Despite growing up in Cape Town my whole life, being able to see the beautiful city from above leaves me stunned every time. Perhaps it’s the mountains or the way the ocean wraps around the coast, but the views always makes me appreciate where I live that much more.
