Mr and Mrs Himmelreich enjoying a moment together!
Our daughter Amy married Karl last Saturday - we had a really wonderful day. Karl comes from South Africa and his family were unable to join us so all our family are hi-jacking the Honeymoon and going to visit them! We all fly out separately and meet up on November 10th in Bloemfontein where we will spend 5 nights together. We then all go off in different directions!

Gary and I have 3 weeks there and the planning has taken a while! We are staying in a variety of places varying from wooden chalets to Country Estates and are hoping to see some great sights. We fly into Cape Town where we pick up a car and enjoy a couple of nights in the centre. Then off to The Karoo National Park for 2 nights before meeting our 3 children and partners in Bloemfontein. Looking forward to a typical SA Braai ( pronounced BRY) at Karl's uncle's farm on the Saturday where we will meet his Mum and his SA family.

After a few nights there just our family move to the Oude Kraal Country Estate for 2 nights for a bit of fine dining and some activities including

clay pigeon shooting and horse riding! I think the bird watching or sundowner ride might be my choices !

We then all separate and do our own thing.

Gary and I are heading south and our first stop will be Port Elizabeth. From there we drive along the Garden Route and stay in Mossel Bay for a few nights. Next stop will be Aquila Game Reserve where we have a hilltop chalet and enjoy a couple of mini safaris.

Then back to Camps Bay, Cape Town where we are hoping to meet up with both the girls and husbands for a night to compare notes! Ben and Sandra will have already left sadly.

So the paperwork is completed and packing is underway!
