Holiday is over. Time for work!

The past three weeks in South Africa have been amazing. We started out by visiting Robben Island and the Cape Point, climbing the Table Mountain and exploring Cape Town during the first four days. After that we went to Stellenbosch and experienced the most extraordinary wine safari you could imagine, and became friends with Justin, our wine guide. We have visited the southernmost point of Africa, called Cape Agulhas, hired a house in a really cosy village in Nature’s Valley for a few days, drove to Beaufort West in Karoo and experienced our first game reserve. We have been to the Valley of Desolation just outside Graaff-Reinet, I (Daniel) visited one of the greatest cactus gardens in the world, drove on a former Formula One circuit in East London and went swimming in the Indian ocean. We had our own house for four nights in Port Shepstone, and went to Oribi Gorge and Lake Eland Game Reserve to see more wild animals and finally up to Durban and had a great ending of a long road trip. We have met so many nice locals, tasted delicious food from all over the world, including some local dishes, and seen fantastic landscapes, far from anything at least I have seen before in my life. Today we were warmly welcomed to a farm just outside Hluhluwe, where we will live for three weeks. Tomorrow it’s time for our first day of work. Really looking forward to that.
