South Africa
Our First Country
What Did We Get Up To?
Did We Enjoy It?

Our First Country

We were all a little apprehensive about going to South Africa. We'd heard a lot about how the country was dangerous because of the racial and political problems, and how there were loads of sharks in the water, but once we got there we had a ball.

It felt great to step off the plane into the baking hot sun of Cape Town. Not only did it finally sink in that our trip had actually started, but we all knew that we'd made the right decision when we'd decided to go travelling.
