Having just spent over 30 hours alternating between flights and airports, my family and I landed in Cape Town, South Africa with an awakened adventurous spirit. It was early afternoon local time which motivated us to opt to go straight to hiking Table Mountain. We were dehydrated and sleep deprived from the traveling which made the hike even more challenging, along with the detour we added (not recommended!!) that doubled the hiking time. However, the magnificent landscape and stunning views of Cape Town and the ocean kept us going and was totally worth it.
Soon, the sun was setting down, and we were down to five minutes left before the last cable car to go down the hill – if we missed it, we would have to hike down the mountain in the dark, without any lights. Unfortunately, my calves decided to cramp up at that time and refused to let up. Not only could I no longer walk, but I couldn't even stand up! It took two people to carry me to the cable car – just in time as the doors closed behind us!
