Snake Park

We explored the local Snake Park.

Much braver than me 
Until next time ...

The Farm - Trackers South Africa

Our first few days at Trackers were days of exploration and rediscovery. This is where Paul's parents have lived for the last thirty years and where I met Paul 24 years ago.

Traveling from Highveld to the Lowveld

We spent a great week in Johannesburg with Paul's sister and I was blessed with being able to meet up with two of my high school friends. Once we had all got over our jet lag we took a 500+ km drive from Johannesburg to Trackers. It was a long day but a happy one.

We drove via the Voortrekker Monument (I will share more on this next month when I'm back in Australia). I visited this monument back in 1981 and it made such an impression on me I've wanted to return ever since. We spent two hours exploring the monument before resuming our trip.
