Great Hotel

What a wonderful rustic experience. Got to reception and everything was ready for us. We're staying in one of the annexes. Whole place to ourselves. Receptionist say: no phone, no TV, no room service. GREAT!!! The room was lovely. Great old bath, wall papered walls, lovely linen. Even put heater on for us.

Restaurant was wonderful and romantic. Food was great. Will check out breakfast soon.

This is an experience everyone must try.

... sucked it up and went down again. The second dive was similar to the first, except no dive emergency, and more sharks, specifically the ragged tooth sharks I'd come to see. They're one of the biggest sharks I've seen yet, and seeing them in the water was a treat. We also spotted a turtle who was napping and was awakened by us. He looked annoyed when he decided to swim away. That afternoon, I drove down to durban to watch a shark dissection. The government here sets up nets and ...

Serving traditional food, and the setting was stunning. After this brief stop for Boerewors, pap and beer, we then went to the spectacular 48 metre Berlin Falls. We then tried once again to see God's ...

... pap, chuckalucka (an african said dish consisting of capsicums, beans and onions) and curried mince with a bread roll. We chopped, diced, crushed and sautéed for about the next 4 hours before our tired bodies headed to bed.
Friday morning was our first copt meeting for the year but it was hard to focus knowing the day we had ahead of us. Glenn did however treat us to a delicious cooked brekky to welcome us all back together with ...

And then it's only right that I domesticate my house slightly since I'm going to miss this domesticated bliss for a month. But really the reason for this premature blog is to establish whether its as functionally friendly as it claims to be and whether my friends and ...

Amazulu FC v Maritzburg Utd

... was only around a quarter full or so I thought, basically half of one side but only the lower tier, I thought around 20,000. The game started well with an early goal for Amazulu then an equalizer then Amazulu scored again just before half
time. I grabbed another beer at the break and got back to my seat to witness the maddest own goal I have ever seen which was basically the defender cleared it from the edge of the box kicking it into his ...
