Prologue: Getting Ready For The Mother City


It’s time once again for my wife and I to pack our suitcases, sort out exactly which camera gear to take, and generally worry about all of the things we simply must take with us and absolutely cannot forget – but probably will.

We are heading to South Africa in the morning, that’s almost 9,000 miles away; pretty much straight down.  This will be the first time that I have ever been below the equator, which is quite exciting and long overdue.

There is a lot to look forward to “down there”, but one particular added bonus to this trip is that we are going to enjoy a friend’s wedding whilst we are there, more on this at the appropriate time.

For now, sit back, relax, and hope that we have an adventurous – though not too adventurous – time exploring The Mother City and surrounding areas.

Until tomorrow…

  2. Hello and best wishes for your adventure down under. What a thing to have all one’s children on the other side of the equator!
    Have a great time, we are looking forward to following you all the way!

    1. Well done Barney, I am going to put an Afrikaans word or phrase at the start of each entry… or at least until I run out of words.
