The Great Trek

Jo'Burg to Cape Town

SOUTH AFRICA | Monday, 26 January 2009 | Views [376] | Comments [4]

Hi All

So we've made it to Cape Town after a 26 hour slog on the train, wow...that was a test of our character! We're staying on the busy and bustling Long Street, a backpackers mecca. Lots of travellers here and they do know how to party, into the small hours...whilst us oldies are in bed by 9pm!! LOL

Yesterday we took an open bus tour around the Cape Town area, taking in all the amazing sites and getting seriously sunburnt, rooky mistake! We've been at Blue Mountain Lodge for the past 2 nights and are moving to a place called Zebra Crossing for Tues and Wed nights, (at foothills of Table Mountain)then onto a place called Afrique du Sud for the duration of our stay (near the beach) before we fly to Bangaluru on Thursday next week (5th Feb).

We're both falling pray to the insects which is a bit uncomfortable but nothing we can't handle.

Some photos are on now so happy viewing.

Speak soon.
