Cape Town - We’re such a fan of Thursdays, because if Thursday was a person, she would be that one who encourages you to hold on, and push through for a better tomorrow, and well, we know what comes after Thursday right?

But before we get to the cool kid of the week (Friday), Thursday has some pretty cool things going for it too. Just like this one trend that’s called Throwback Thursday that’s supposed to bring back the nostalgia in you, and is (for some) an excuse to share their baby pics with the world.

Well, we have our own Throwback Thursday, one that has dug into our travel memories and highlights everything that once was, and (in most cases) still is quite special to do in South Africa.

1.   Remember Sun City??
