... on with a slither of tendon. He has definitely lost it I think.

Another drunk driver brought in moaning about his self-inflicted knee pain at the nurses station suddenly seems even more unsavoury. What a night. December is a busy month in a place not known to be quiet.

Half a sleep as we drive home at 8am o’clock we ponder in silence. I guess this is why we came here. Scenes and experiences for life.

The final day, E-Day, the end, the conclusion; it was fitting enough that my final day on African soil would fall on the day of the World Cup Final.
Somehow, it was a world cup final that included my beloved Netherlands. Up against however, the best team in the tournament, player for player - Spain.
We awoke around 10am for a marathon period of drama, football and travel. Little did I know, that from that point, I would sleep a mere 2 hours, in the next 50+


Shark Diving in Ukomaas. South Africa

... Coast Lodge is situated right on the beach, raised slightly up a bank. It’s a very short walk around the corner to get onto the beach. We have been told not to leave our doors open during the night or even the day; as the monkeys in the area are very cheeky and will come in and take stuff. My room is basic; no telly or air con, but it does have a fan. The bed is massive and i mean massive; i can lay across its width and my outstretched arms and feet only just ...

    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.
