South Africa - November 2011

  • Pilanesberg landscape
    In November 2011 we traveled to South Africa and brought Charles's parents along for the ride. We spent a week in and around Cape Town, a few days near Hartbeespoort and the Cradle of Humankind, a couple days at Pilanesberg National Park, and two days with my friend Stephanie and her family in Pretoria. It was a FANTASTIC trip! There are (currently) 78 photos in this album and don't include some of the great places we visited or people we saw. I may add more as we finish weeding through the approximately FOUR THOUSAND photos we took. Seriously. It was a great trip.

I am so excited for you guys! And jealous, just so you know... good luck!!!


So exciting! Glad you guys made it safely and I can't wait to read more about your adventures. :)


Wilkommen auf (wait, wrong language)... Welcome to the Netherlands! Do you find the Low Countries to be low enough to deserve the name? From my linguistically illiterate travels in Spain, I would recommend you learn four words/phrases quickly: "thank you", "where is...?", "how much...?" and "bathroom/toilet/washroom".

How exciting and what an adventure. I am glad you had safe travels and already got to see the house and the town you will be staying in.
If you don't have rubber boots/shoes yet, you may need them as I heard they have a damp fall and spring.
Thinking of you both! kva

Enjoy setting up your home and creating your life together there. Glad to hear that things are going well.

dejavu - Kris I love your site as well as the word of the day. Verboten - that is one of my favorite German words. And yes we have those freeky sheets that only fit Euro beds. I laughed out loud at your comments about the late night bike ride and sleeping on the trains. Yes, never be late... Cheers to you both.
