Capetonians have basically forgotten what it's like to bubble bath. Do shops even sell bubble bath anymore? Surely not.

It's maybe something we did when we were children, but the experience of bathing as an adult has completely left my memory. In the last two years, it has been impossible because of the drought. 

Yet, Instagram seems to be soaking it up, in beautiful baths around the country.

An outdoor bath (or one with a view) just has that added romance, establishing that great connection to nature.

Splish-splash, this must be the wanderlust of cleansing.
