... days that he was on
board the ship, he touched many of our hearts not just because of his
Eucharist service but rather as a real human being worthy of all

... Chintsa: Just outside East London a great campsite a short walk from the longest most deserted beach I've ever seen.

- Umzumbe: Just around 30km outside Durban and a really cool backpackers around the corner from the beach. The weather here was starting to hot up again now that we'd gotten a bit further north.
