          Colonial style, right on the beach, with access to. Beautifully renovated rooms. So many styles of dining - high afternoon tea, pizza oven, silver service dining - it is your choice

          If you are in Durban with the kids this is a great place to stay. When the sun moves from the pool area you can take the nets and fishing rods down to the beach and go rock pooling. At night time the kids loved using the cinema room and being spoilt with popcorn. The hotel excels itself in making sure you have a relaxing and enjoyable time. Our accommodation was ideal - with the adults enjoying a large and separate room and en suite and the kids down stairs with extra beds in the lower section. The manager was fantastic and helped us with ideas on where to go and what to do not just for Durban for throughout our trip.

          Wednesday - the morning was spent driving from to Knysna to Port Elizabeth, apart from a few huge ravines and a most impressive bridge that they Bungee Jumping from the drive was unremarkable. Quick flight to Durban and we have booked into the Oyster Box Hotel which is situated on the water front. Very swish it reminds me of the Raffles in …

          Today we left Knysna to travel to Port Elizabeth to board a British Airline flight to Durban. Along the route we again crossed Storm River but this time a further inland. Our flight was very comfortable. Our tour guide explained that our accomodation in Durban was a bit shabby and he can't understand why Scenic keep using it. With dampened spirits …

          ... smiling non-stop. I crossed the Hilton where we were staying at, and decided to have my last GU. It was the moment I had been waiting for so long, it was 10:45 and I still doubted that the bronze would happen. I kept telling myself to have faith, to believe in my body, to not fill my mind with doubt. I remember entering the stadium taking very long strides. I was proud of myself, of my legs, of my lower back, nothing hurt. I wasn’t sure if it was the adrenalin, I ...
