When I was aimlessly going in an endless loop on social media one day, I came across something called Shark Cage Diving. It immediately pulled me out of my lull and I started doing my bit of research about this activity and when and where it can be done.Two years later, my husband and I were thinking of a place to go on a holiday. We wanted to go some place that has a highlighted experience like our previous trips to Finland to see the northern lights, to the Philippines to swim with the whale sharks etc. One led to another, and we were in South Africa for an adventure filled holiday.“Ladies and gentlemen, There are two great white sharks around the boat,” he said.
The next day would turn out to be the most intense day of my trip. I went hiking on St Blaize Trail early in the morning. The trail takes you onto the cliffs overlooking the ocean and is a good 13 km long. The weather was cloudy. So, with crepuscular sun rays piercing the clouds to hit the surface of the ocean, waves lashing onto the sedimentary rock formations and a cave which is known to have housed a core population which showed first signs of modern human behavior, this trail was a surreal brush with the past.
