Before heading to Franschhoek, I stayed at the Protea Waterfront and the Protea Seapoint. Both were better than the DoubleTree, where I stayed last time I visited Cape Town, but neither were better than the Radisson Blu Waterfront. How would the Westin stack up?
Stumbling back to the Protea Franschhoek after a day of perhaps too much wine and too much dine, I reflected on how great life was.
I checked into the Protea Sea Point which is located in the affluent Sea Point neighborhood minutes away from the Protea Waterfront, aka Prison/Business School. The hotel costs 5,000 more points, but the rooms are nicer and the location gives travelers an opportunity to experience more than the Waterfront.
Protea is to points as the rand is to dollar. The value is exceptional. I booked two separate stays at Protea Cape Town Breakwater and here's what I found:
The South African Airways Domestic Lounge Review Johannesburg is part of the South America & Africa Points Heist Trip Report. Recall how angry so many readers were when I called my Ethiopian Airlines flight from JNB...
The flight from DAR to JNB was nothing too exciting. The seats were not lie flat but that did not stop me from sleeping the whole time.
After sitting on a park bench at Dar airport all night, I was allowed to go inside the airport. That didn't mean I could get a ticket. The counter took another hour to open. When it finally did, I checked in, passed through security, and made my way to the lounge.
