Winter is finally upon us. Or rather, it is here. Tis the season to hide under your blankets and binge watch all the episodes of your favourite season. We seek refuge from the cold in our own homes and because of this, it’s very easy to turn into a recluse. We often hibernate until the warmer season comes around. I went around Cape Town to find cozy spots to frequent during the cold season. Here is a list of places to visit during winter.
