A travel blog entry by junket_junkie

After the painful 9-hour flights to arrive in Johannesburg, I loved the comfort and peacefulness that the Intercontinental Hotel provided. I fully enjoyed the cozy sheets and bedding as I slept the day away. Although, I did not enjoy the vegan food... because there wasn't vegan food... and could someone please tell the chefs at the …

Chegamos e tudo certo graças a deus! Impressoes do 1 dia na Africa do Sul = 1 Mundo total! Cidade e estradas fantasticas, povo muito agradavel e divertido! Se soltassem voce no meio da cidade ou na estrada, pelos conceitos que a gente tem da Africa, NUNCA diria "estou na africa". A paisagem e estradas parecem estados unifos mesmo! Largas e bem …

Bad Timing to Finally See a Great Thunderstorm

A travel blog entry by theresabill


We started our day at the regular time & packed up. Bill settled the tab & is now painfully aware that the drinks are not included in the cost of our stay. Guess I will have to scale back on my shopping activities! Boo!

We had the last two poached eggs & I had some Wheet Bix with milk & fruit. We sat on the deck & …

Getting there – Florida to Johannesburg

A travel blog entry by ukcat


This is not exciting and probably not remarkable enough to even waste print. It is simply the drudgery of getting there. We put our feet on South African airport concrete about 5 PM (South African time or 11 AM EST). Leaving the USA was easy (no TSA hassles), getting to Johannesburg was a long, long drag and arriving was uneventful (customs a non- …

    I arrived in Johannesburg after two 9-hour over-night flights and was close to death by exhaustion... So when my mom told me that we were staying at this hotel, right next to the airport, I wasn't too excited. All I wanted to do was sleep and recover from the flights, and I was pleasantly surprised upon arriving at the Intercontinental Hotel. It was very quiet in my room - I barely realized the close proximity to the airport because I did not hear a single plane fly over. The room was delightful and the bedding was soft and cozy. Food wise, it isn't very vegan-friendly. I ordered the only vegan dish on the menu, which was a vegetable stew, and they put cheese on the dish... after I asked if they could please ensure the absence of any dairy. But, the bread was good! So, in all, this hotel was perfect to collect and compose myself.
