... we will just have time to visit one or 2 others before heading to Cape Town airport for our flight back home at 8:45pm. Our 5 weeks in S Africa is coming to an end and it has been so varied, beautiful, interesting and enjoyable both the country and the people. We did not know what to expect before we left France, but the experience has far exceeded our expectations. There was not a dull moment! Next and last entry will be from ...

The next morning we woke up bright and early and made LOTS of noise to wake them up. Ugh, that put an end to ...

Franschhoek is baie lekker!

A travel blog entry by rg09


... The chef also sends out homemade bread, amuse bouche and palate cleansers so we just managed three courses. One of those great dining experiences you remember fondly.

After the few days lazing in the winelands we returned to Cape Town to catch the Premiere Classe train back to Jo'burg. Now this is the way to travel! Murder on the Orient Express is a favourite book, so until we can afford to do that this was a great substitute. Our own cabin, ...
