      the place looks tired it needs a face lift. The owner and workers are lovely but not satisfied with a few things. Our food was eaten out of the fridge and they didnt do anything about it, we booked tours the night before but when we went at the time requested they still hadnt booked anything and had to ring around (occured more than once). Room was nice.

      ... due to the weather and we found out that the hole in wall was a three hour walk away which Jacks feet couldn't handle. We decided not to do any of the activities and to instead dedicate the day to chilling. We skyped home, drank lots of tea, ate tasty food, played lots of pool and jack spent a lot of time playing with his little friend Coral-Bella (the owners daughters) which was very sweet! In the evening we had a lovely dinner and then watched films in ...

      ... again very yummy and dessert was a caramel cheesecake which went down a treat :)! I definitely found that Coffee Bay is a place to be enjoyed in the sunshine as everything you do is outdoors and looks far more beautiful without rain to spoil it! Everyone there is very friendly and despite all the weed which bugged me in the beginning you quickly realise you will only really enjoy yourself if you relax, ignore it, take everyone with a pinch of salt and just laugh...T.I.A ...

      ... off him and cooked up for tasty dinner.

      I spent my time in Bulungula relaxing. I hung out with Sipho and his great aunt (86 years old) one afternoon, chilled at the beach, treated myself to a massage and cruised around the village. I also made a couple trips up to the local "shebeen" which is a bar/store. It was a two room structure, one which was a room and the other which was the bar that had about 20 people sitting on beer ...

      ... and visiting the Bulungula Incubation Centre grounded us in the way of life of the Xhosa people. We went out in the car one late afternoon to take photographs and a couple of teenaged young women in grades 8 and 9 asked for a ride to their homes. They walk a long and very hilly road to and from school every day. When we arrived at their destination, they didn’t know how to get out of the car likely because they probably are rarely in a car.

      Plet's offerings include canoeing, kloofing, abseiling, river ferries and ocean safaris. We passed on this and headed further east. Our intention was to get to the Transkei Wild Coast as our next stop. This required an overnight stay in Port Elizabeth and an early morning departure on the Baz Bus bound for Durban. While still on the bus we got a glimpse of the World's Highest Bungy Jump enroute. The driver slowed down as we crossed ...
