Pete and I have 66 sleeps until we're off to Africa for 27 days filled with action and adventure.
Vaccinations - check
After seeing a friend's travel blog I thought this would be a great way to let our FB friends know where we are and what we're doing......




Our South African adventure started with a 14 hour flight to Johannesburg from Sydney. We managed to be seated together in a centre row of 4 which made the "up close and personal" not so awkward :) Through customs at J'Burg before our next flight to Cape Town.....by the time we got to our apartment we'd essentially been awake for 26 hours....feeling shattered But excited to be here. Day 1: picked up at 8am by Super (he was Africaan) for a half day city tour including a trip up to Table Mountain. A combination of 3 things=Sunday, beautiful weather and the last day the cable car was running for 5 weeks due to winter maintenance caused the queues to be horrendous...but it was worth the wait!!!! The views were spectacular. Super was a font of information ... read more

Thank god our numerous per-trip lists are slowly but surely reducing. There are still a couple of issues (phone & pool filter) which are causing more grief than necessary ;) we've still got "a cupala days" to sort them though. Not only will we be celebrating the Blues after their win on Wednesday but also Pete's big six oh birthday - double celebration with Jen, Pete, Aby, Dan & Leny :D Thursday is dedicated to packing (love leaving that until the last minute) then fish & chip dinner at the Nursing Home with Os....then up, up and away Friday lunchtime to Sydney for an overnight stay at Rydges @ the airport - meet Lyn & Brian Saturday morning to check in, have breckie then a 10am departure to Johannesburg........ Only 5 sleeps......excited much... read more

We leave Hervey Bay on 19th and Sydney at 10am on 20th. A 14 hour flight to Johannesburg, a little wait for our next plane to Cape Town and our apartment for 4 nights.... read more

Africa » South Africa May 15th 2013

I'm creating a travel blog after seeing how easy it is. A friend is doing one for her European sojourn and I thought what a brilliant idea. Our FB friends will know where we are and what we're doing/seeing. Passports are valid, vaccinations are done, we're waiting for our visas and then in 66 sleeps we'll be up, up and away. I'm excited!!!!... read more
