My African Adventure πŸ¦’

Always got time to sneak in an extra five minutes to read a book πŸ˜‰

We are on our second leg of our African Adventure today. We packed last night, so it was just pyjamas and toiletries, and then we are good to go.

We go down to breakfast for the final time at the Pretoria hotel. As it’s an internal flight I grab a couple bottles of water, fruit and a few muffins for the flight.

Sitting in the reception area we wait for our taxi to take us to the airport.

My Travel companion πŸ˜‰

It’s a two and a half hour flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town. I grab the window seat and look out the window the whole flight. Looking at the patchwork landscape I try hard to see wildlife (but I think I’m a little too high up to see anything πŸ˜‰ I put my earphones in and listen to some music.

We get off the plane, grab our cases and then it’s off to find our transport.

Noticing a sign that says β€œBurns” I’m assuming that’s for usπŸ˜‰ we say hello to the driver and he grabs my suitcase and takes us to the car.

The sun is shining on Cape Town, whereas Johannesburg is dark and closed in. Cape Town has more of a modern look to it. The buildings look newer and the roads are a lot smoother.

We get to The President Hotel.

The Pretoria had the colonial feel about it. The President has more of a modern look to it, and we aren’t far from the sea, so it looks a little like the beach resorts back home.

Our bags are taken up to our room once we are checked in. Again water is offered, and I grab a bottle. We are told all about the hotel and given a welcome pack (hotel keys, menus, and facilities on the site) we follow the porter up to our rooms. Definitely a different feel here. Very clean, very modern.

The walk into the little shopping area doesn’t take long. We have a quick look round. Then decide on where we will eat tonight. We have an early start tomorrow, so it’s an early night for us.
