The Final Countdown – 1 (Thursday)

Thu, 6 Feb 2014 | By davidt | Views [93]

It seems a little weird to think that today was my last full day in the country before heading home. It’s going to feel quite strange coming back to the UK after so long away but I’m very glad that I’ve still got a week after I get ... Read more >

The Final Countdown – 2 (Wednesday)

Wed, 5 Feb 2014 | By davidt | Views [72]

Today was another shopping day. I’ve been trying to pick up a Springboks rugby shirt while I’m here and up until today, every time I found one they didn’t have my size. This morning Amy and I went shopping. We started off at the African ... Read more >

The Final Countdown - 3 (Tuesday)

Tue, 4 Feb 2014 | By davidt | Views [84]

Today has been another fairly quiet day. I went out for lunch and a bit of shopping with Amy. My main requirement was a slightly larger bag for hand luggage as I have quite a few books I got for Christmas and I don’t want them to eat my hold luggage ... Read more >

The Final Countdown - 4 (Monday)

Mon, 3 Feb 2014 | By davidt | Views [65]

After the long drive home over the weekend, Monday was mainly spent downloading pics to the PC (which I am still sorting through but don’t think I’ll get any more posted before I’m home, at which point expect the rest all in one hit!) ... Read more >

The long drive home

Sun, 2 Feb 2014 | By davidt | Views [64]

Although it didn’t seem it on the way down, mainly due to the fact that I flew to the halfway point, it’s quite a slog from Paternoster to Jo’burg. We did the trip over two days, with 9 hours driving one day and 7 or so the next. We ... Read more >

2 Days in Paternoster

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 | By davidt | Views [90]

I’m sitting here on our last night in Paternoster, very conscious of two things. 1) this time next week I’ll be on a plane and homeward bound and 2) we have two very long days of driving and a ridiculously early start tomorrow. Paternoster ... Read more >

Goodbye to Cape Town

Wed, 29 Jan 2014 | By davidt | Views [75]

So today we left the Strand and headed north (north west?) to Paternoster. We took a slightly convoluted route in order to swing past the Franschhoek Motor Museum. We had passed the place earlier in the week and a quick google had revealed a collection ... Read more >

How to get drunk while being a tourist!

Tue, 28 Jan 2014 | By davidt | Views [99]

Any day that starts with brandy must be a good one, right? Today we were touring the wine regions outside Cape Town on a hop on/hop off style wine bus. We were also joined for the day by one of Amy’s oldest friends, KP and all in all we had a pretty ... Read more >

Cape Town, Buses and Helicopters

Mon, 27 Jan 2014 | By davidt | Views [82]

Cape Town City Tours - Hop On/Hop Off busses were the order of the day. We had tickets for the cable carat Table Mountain so the plan was to do some touristy sight-seeing for the day starting from Table Mountain and finishing back there at the end of ... Read more >

First stop today was Haute Cabriere, a small winery in the Franschoek wine valley. This place is the home of the Pierre Jourdan range of sparkling wines along with its own range of Pinot Noirs, Ratafia (really sweet pre dinner white) and a Chardonay ... Read more >

To the Cape

Fri, 24 Jan 2014 | By davidt | Views [76]

Today’s plan was simple, head round the coast road to visit the Cape of Good Hope, maybe making a couple of stops along the way. We’d read that catching the rush hour can add hours to the journey so we waited until after 9 before heading ... Read more >

Furthest South

Thu, 23 Jan 2014 | By davidt | Views [88]

Today was mainly another travelling day. We had some ideas of places we wanted to hit en-route but the main aim was to end up at the flat we have rented for 6 nights at the Strand near Cape Town. As we left Swellendam we initially headed for Bredasdorp ... Read more >
