Aside from mistakenly calling it Port Alfred all the time, there’s not much else I can tell you about this place. It’s a random town in the middle of scenic nowhere. The only reason we stayed here was because I booked a place that was “half way between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth on our drive back from PE (really that's how I found it, I googeld the half way point and I was pointed here).
On a side note, it really is a wonderful place and I wish I could’ve stayed for more than just one night. There were a few interesting shops on the main strip and Hanna managed to find the cutest red angora wool fishermans beanie.
1 tent, us 2, 4 countries, 16 passport stamps, 20 days, 5627km and a lifetime of memories.
I faired way better than I ever thought I would on this trip, the things that I thought would be challenges like waking up early daily, setting up and taking down my tent everyday just ended up being an enjoyable way of life.
All I will say about this trip is that it should be high up on your bucket list
The pictures speak for themselves.
"Go to Mozambique! As long as you don't expect to find flawless infrastructure, just go. Because this is a country where people have not quite grown accustomed to tourists. You still feel a genuineness that no longer exists in countries where tourism has been industrially developed" - Henning Mankell
I'm not going to write much about this trip at all because I actually don't enjoy writing as much as I thought I did. Photo's though, that I love, so tons of pics.
This Mozambique adventure was an awesome road trip filled with laughter, good music, bad music (on repeat) and some awesome new friends.
The trip had a few hiccups along the way but honestly they all added to the experience, I can honestly say trip was anything but boring. Our van got stuck in sand, we paid bribes at roadblocks because of dodge and corrupt police officials, people were handcuffed and thrown into police cars.
On top of all this drama I didn't even bother to take any malaria tablets :-). I wouldn't recommend this to anyone one, be safe out there.
Long story short we drove up on a Wednesday night (reaching our spectacular destination on Thursday evening!)
and back on Sunday morning. The weekend was fun.
Our awesome accommodation in Tofo was Vanilla Views
If you ever do this trip, rent a 4x4, lots of sand in Tofo!

My girlfriend LOVES Hermanus, she really does. With that being said we never need much of an excuse to head out onto the open the road and make our way down there. Luckily it is only an hour and half drive out of Cape Town.

Cape Town to Port Elizabeth and back again..
This simple sounding road trip changed my life forever, it's where I fell in love with the most amazing person I know, my girlfriend, Hanna. This isn't one of THOSE let me pour my heart out to you type of blogs so I wont go further into details than that.
I travel, I eat & take pics.. sometimes I even work
