The Author was born and raised in Cape Town and for many years was a Tourist Guide in the area. The inspiration for the book came from having grandchildren living abroad and the desire to share with them this magical trip around the Cape Peninsula. She remembers her mother Peggy sharing many of these places with her as a child.
