Shark Diving!

A travel blog entry by sophie_ish


In the evening we arrived in Hermanus and had an early night ready for our shark cage diving the next day. Bright and early after breakfast and being sized up for our wet suits we headed out on the sea excited to catch a glimpse of some great white sharks. Just as we are called for our turn to get into the cage, Ish turns a strange shade of green …

Rounding the Cape

A travel blog entry by daveandmarit


Set off from Cape town in our VW Citi Golf for a two week road trip around South Africa. First part was to see the Cape Peninsular and to round the Cape of Good Hope.

    We stayed in their separate cottage. Couldn't ask for more! Huge kitchen. Great rooms. Comfy bed. Pool out back with yard. Really lovely. Perfect for a long stay. Shame we were only one night.
