We made it! (just)

A travel blog entry by charlottesmith on Jun 29, 2014

... and we made it to Cape Town. After so many nights of camping, often without electricity or running water, there was nothing I looked forward to more than a hot shower, clean clothes, and the much awaited BED! The whole thing feels like a dream; it was far too good to have been real. I had absolutely no idea how much beauty was condensed into such a small area of the world, and if you ever get the chance, you absolutely must visit. Africa is so often discounted as ...

... not there this morning), when a lady asked me how the tumble drier worked. In a language she could understand I pointed out the correct button to press and she was very grateful.

Punda Maria Camp is near the gate and offers an escort after the gate closes up to 9 p.m. for 200 Rand ($20). The last 2 hours of our drive were through 2-lane winding roads and there were several towns that we drove by. There were also people walking the roads in ...

... amazing even though the setting was really cool. The memory for me at this vineyard was when we headed outside to see the view and their fish pond. On the way back in to the main reception area the wind caught the door and trapped my finger in the gap. Ouch!!! I went over to where Cat was clutching my fingers and moaning about how much it hurt. She claimed that because I wasn’t crying that it couldn’t be that bad but we were both shocked when I opened ...
