We ended up spending a full week with our in-laws on the coast, had a wonderful relaxing time catching up again after a couple of years. Also caught up with our Belgium boys again spending another week with them, visiting Plattenburg on the coast all the way back to Hermannus to see the whales.... sadly, the weather was so rough that day the whales stayed out under the deeper water for the duration.
On the way back to Jo'burg we did not expect to see the SNOW on the mountain...Read Full Post »

The final stretch......
It took us while, but we both got over the flu bug, or what ever it was after spending 3 days resting at a lovely place with a tuscan feel just down the road a bit from Berlin Falls. Graskop is one of Bobs favourite towns, usually cause he has a antique store that he is fond of... but also, there are some stunning areas to look out of, one being Gods window, and the areas around it, which are full of scenic spots and waterfalls. Next we arrived...Read Full Post »

Finally everything was sorted in Kenya and we 'ran-the-gauntlet' as you have to driving through Tanzania. Police stop check points are around every corner and at some places, we were stopped even less than 2 klm in one stretch. Knowing how hard they are on speeding and knowing most of their tricks of the trade, at one time, we did get fined for speeding, doing 67 in a 50 zone, so even tho we paid the $30- fine, we also explained to them the importance of using a radar gun on a straig...Read Full Post »

Let me tell you, it has been an extremely long and very slow drive,… not for the faint hearted.
For 10 days solid we did nothing but get up, drive,(sometimes in the dark) find dinner, (cooker not working) sleep and drive again. 75 -80% of the way is spent doing less than 50 kms an hour, due to such badly pot holed roads, town boundaries, which go on long after the town has finished, and the all important slow up HUMPS, of which there are hundreds. Fair to ...Read Full Post »

G’day everyone, yes we are now sitting in our friends home here in South Africa, preparing ‘Huberta,’ our new camper for the next 4 months of travel.
We will leave here in about a week or so, head up to Kenya via Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania before reaching Kenya and our Kikuya & Maasai family and friends there around the beginning of June.
So, just giving you a heads up, will try to keep things short and sweet. Strap yourself in, get comfy and try to en...Read Full Post »

A very BELATED update here... but....Back on the road, and like we said, we changed our mind about going home down the middle through to Ayres Rock, and instead opted to visit to Nat and Ina in Queensland, just a mere 1000km detour..... or that is what i thought!!! In actual fact, it was an extra 3000kms detour to get to their place in Brisbane,.... but still, a very good choice, cause we also saw lots of other interesting thin...Read Full Post »

Yep, we are happy little campers, all 3 of us, we once again have Gail aboard, and we are heading off on our first real Aussie trip.
