Dream trip of traveling around the world. We have a general idea of where we are headed but only time will tell where the journey takes us.

Proposed itinerary: Scandanavia - Russia- China - SE Asia - Australia - South America - Mediteranean Europe - Africa - Europe

From Tanzania we flew to Cape Town with a short lay-over in Jo'berg. We arrived late after flying all day and were glad to be greeted with a shuttle to the hostel where we quickly had a shower, switched off the alarm and jumped into soft beds. Monday, day one had us trying to hire a rental car for the four days and booking the tours we are hoping to go on. The first tour booked was Sam's Great White shark diving followed by my golf tee time for later in the week and finished with a wine tasting tour.

Where do we put our packs because they sure as hack don't fit in the tiny overhead compartments? After stuffing bags under seats up and down the aisle we settled in for a 4 hour trip. Once we arrived at the train station we went in search of an ATM where Sam promptly took out only $20. Fortunately a group of German backpackers were leaving Prague and gave us their metro pass that was still valid for 3 more days. We checked into our hostel and went in search of food. We found a nice restaurant that had excellent food and the ... read more
