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.
"Johannesburg is weird, because half of it is like Los Angeles. It feels like just wealthy parts of L.A. But half of it is severe slummy, something like Rio De Janiero or something. So it's kind of weird, because it's both happening at the same time." - Neill Blomkamp
To be honest, this is far from being my favourite part of South Africa, I could go on for hours about why i'm not fond of Johannesburg BUT this particular trip was one of my favourite trips there in a while.

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.

I've always been about the journey more than the actual destination and nothing is more comfortable for long distance travel than an overnight train unless you're on a private yacht or something .. The fact that it's budget friendly helps a great deal too. With this is mind we booked ourselves 2 Johannesburg to Cape Town one way tickets with Shosholoza Meyl.

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
