Get ready for travel, tech, and tidying up in this month’s newsletter!

This month’s Cape Town Travel Guide focuses on great food, including the best new restaurants and bars and Franschhoek restaurants and wine tours. There’s also more to sip and savour with the best red wines for winter.

After exploring the neighbourhoods of Cape Town, travel news looks at the best spas and wellness experiences in the Cape as well as City One, a new app that aims to make commuting less of a pain.

News across the web focuses on social media, an industry that started with promise but now seems to be losing trust: from uncertainty at Twitter and fresh hell at Facebook (which one of the co-founders wants broken up) to toxic videos on YouTube and massive harassment on Instagram (on top of the rise of selfie deaths). And while some people have come out in defense of the tech industry, others have chosen to cut the big tech companies from their lives.

What’s best for you? Marie Kondo says it well in The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, our book recommendation for this month:

“We should be choosing what we want to keep, not what we want to get rid of. Keep only those things that speak to your heart. Then take the plunge and discard all the rest.”

Don’t be afraid to let it go.
