A Travellerspoint blog

Brandy, Braais and Bathing

overcast 23 °C

My first real blog entry :) But I have no pictures as I left my camera back at the house today :(

So far i've mainly just chilled out.. I've needed it after the stress of getting ready over the past couple of weeks and what felt like a very long journey. I actually spent longer in Johannesburg airport than I do at work! And the overnight plane journey surrounded by NINE (Yes nine!) crying babies was not much fun. But it was definitely worth the pain :)

New Year's Eve was very different for me. Normally spent wandering around Douglas underdressed and freezing, we had a BBQ next to the pool and I drank way too much. It was a really nice change though, definitely has the edge on New Years at home.

On New Year's Day there is some religious ritual where loads of people go down to the beach and into the sea to "Wash away their sins". We went down for a look (Didn't join them) - There were hundreds of people! It made me think of the Peel New Year's Dip of 2010 fame.

I think I will find my mojo next week and start getting out and about and will have much more to write about.. Right now, relaxing is all I want to do :)

I may have a problem...

Big clothes, small bag.

sunny 2 °C

Ok, so the main point of today's entry is to make sure I am technologically advanced enough to be able to update my blog whilst i'm away :)

Also, i've just had a trial run at packing and I thought i'd upload a couple of pictures so you can understand the magnitude of my problem. I have a lot of stuff to squeeze into a little space.

Oh well, Port Elizabeth should be enjoying my company in 4 days provided we have no more snow.

Wish me luck.
