  • The Wild, Wild East!

    The Wild, Wild East!

    We drove out of Knysna full of anticipation and excitement for the resuming of our journey east. We had spent our entire time in South Africa so far in the westernised, developed Western Cape – there is so much more of the country to experience and we were keen to get on with it. As […]

  • Henry´s Hiccup in the Mountains of Wilderness

    Henry´s Hiccup in the Mountains of Wilderness

    We left you at the end of the last post having an idyllic few days travelling the Garden Route. We had made it to the town of Wilderness, floating on the river in the national park enjoying the peace and quiet, spotting the bird life. All was right with the world. The next day we […]

  • Interlude – Cats!

    Interlude – Cats!

    I have to admit, my firmly held belief that ´there is no such thing as too much cheese´ has, very occasionally, been found to have its limits – the cheese farm you´ll read about in our next post being the most recent! However I have never found any limits to my other passsionately held view […]

  • The Call of the Open Road – Heading East

    The Call of the Open Road – Heading East

    South Africa is officially cold! Beautiful, friendly, easy to travel around but cold! We are heading into winter and the temperatures morning and evening can be anywhere from 6 to 16 degrees and generally damp. We recently had two days of 31 degree heat but apart from that it doesn´t get any warmer than late […]

    Return of the Prodigal Son – It´s all about Henry!

    For those of you that get your alerts on the Whatsapp group, you will already know that this is a very happy blog! We left you at the end of the last post excited that the MSC Chloe had finally moored in Cape Town but trying to contain ourselves during the long wait for Henry´s […]

  • Soaking up the Scenery on the Garden Route

    Soaking up the Scenery on the Garden Route

    We bought a fridge! That may not sound like the most exciting – or appropriate – thing for two nomadic travellers to do, however the lack of a camping fridge in the Hilux we were fitting out was the only thing standing between us and the open road. We had spent days trying to find […]

  • Busy Doing Nothing in the Western Cape

    Busy Doing Nothing in the Western Cape

    We have so far spent almost 3 weeks on our Cape Town shipping agent´s farm awaiting Henry´s arrival. At any given time he has always been about 2 weeks away! Frustrations abound but the farm is lovely, we are made to feel like friends rather than customers and we are, afterall, in the beautiful Stellenbosch […]

  • In Our Element – Exploring the Wine Country

    In Our Element – Exploring the Wine Country

    We left you at the end of the last post as we sat in our beautiful, remote cabin in the Tankwa Karoo National Park, soaking up the peace and quiet and making friends with the wildlife. That evening we watched a spectacular electrical storm raging on the horizon for hours, lighting up the whole sky. […]
