Another day in Paradise

When we mentioned to friends at New Year that we were tagging a few days in Mauritius on to the end of our trip to South Africa, they commented that Mauritius was Paradise. With its' palm trees, white sandy beaches and warm turquoise sea it certainly fits the bill, but there is room for improvement.

We have one more day of rest and relaxation after today, before we fly back to the UK. Arriving back in Manchester at 7.00 am on Friday morning is going to be hard, but we are both looking forward to getting home after three and a half weeks away.

The road to Wilderness

After several days on the road driving through the Cape Winelands and the Garden Route we ended up at Wilderness, where we had this fantastic view of the Indian Ocean from our bedroom window.

This was for one night only before we moved onto somewhere with a much more mundane view. Since then we have moved on to Port Elizabeth and are now in Johannesburg where it is currently raining.
