By the time this post appears I will be away on a short holiday. My husband and I are off motorbiking down and across the South – Eastern part of South Africa for about eight days. We leave at 7.30am and our first stop will be for breakfast at a restaurant on the top of the Northern Drakensberg .
Delicious health breakfast of fresh fruit, muesli and yoghurt drizzled with honey, is my choice
My carnivorous husband's choice is a Traditional English Breakfast of sausage, bacon, two fried eggs, mushrooms, toast and...
After this we ride down the mountain to spend the first night with our older son and his family who are at a Y-WAM discipleship school.
From there we travel along the Eastern Cape coast stopping to overnight with friends in Port Elizabeth and then to the Western Cape where we’ll stay with other friends who have a beautiful Guest House overlooking the Knysna Heads .
We continue up to Route 62 in the Southern Cape (a biking route copied from Route 66 in the USA) stopping off to see friends on each successive day eventually visiting the Karoo National Park on the penultimate day of our tour.
The Cape, like the rest of the country is renowned for its abundant bird life. We aim to do as much birdwatching as possible and to catch up with friends along the way.
We return home towards the end of next week. I will have lots of photos and many stories about our trip across this beautiful country called South Africa.
