Places I have parked: Cape Town International Airport

8 April, 2009 at 1:59 pm 5 comments

Some time last year I remember reading this cool list of things to do with your phone to make your life easier. One of them – which struck me as so obvious that I can’t think why no one had thought of it before – was to take a picture of your parking space number, especially when you are parking in huge multi-storey car parks at places like shopping malls and airports.

You know what it’s like, you dash off to a meeting or a movie, mumbling K43… K43…, next to the blue Golf (which has inevitably left by the time you return), kind of diagonally to my right (or was it left??) of the lift.

Instead, just use your phone to take a quick pic of your parking spot.

So I gave this a go yesterday when I parked in one of the new parkades at Cape Town International Airport. Good thing I did too – when I returned over 12 hours later, with a brain frazzled from meetings and aeroplane air, I saved myself much swearing and stomping around on already knackered feet.

Check it out:

Tip – if you are parking at Cape Town International, chose parkage 1 for the international terminal and parkade 2 for domestic. It’s not as clearly marked as it should be, especially at the crack of dawn, pre-coffee. Also, make sure you chose the right location for your wallet: undercover is over R 80 for 12 – 24 hours, while open air is just over R 40 for the same time period.

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong
    none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of
    websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to
    another platform. I have heard excellent things about
