It has been a while since I shared on our blog – this doesn’t mean we haven’t been having any adventures. Quite the contrary actually, we have been having so much adventure I’ve been struggling to find time to do what I love – write and blog.
At the end of June 2013 we decided to take “a 3 week holiday” and go on a road trip – and we are still on that road trip! It began with a weekend on the Garden Route, stopping in Swellendam to visit the fairy sanctuary and spending a night in Wilderness and The Craggs, stopping in Port Elizabeth for lunch with new friends (fellow adventurers) and then our first long stop in East London with our family. After a week there, we made our way through the Transkei to Lidgetton in the Kwazulu Natal Midlands. What was meant to be a one week stay turned into three weeks with visits to Ushaka in Durban and the Buddhist Retreat Centre in Ixopo, before reluctantly tearing ourselves away and heading back to East London. A car incident had us stuck in East London until mid-October before we set out to Plettenberg Bay where we were to volunteer for two weeks en route back to Cape Town.
We made it back to Cape Town for just under a week – just enough time to write my exams and put all of our belongings into storage before making our way back to Plettenberg Bay – where we are still volunteering and having a wonderful farm experience.
Our road trip adventures up to the point of leaving East London can be viewed on our travel blog “Warrior on Wheels Travels” and I promise to write about our three months of volunteering shortly – I just have so many photographs to sort through and share.
