De Addis Abeba a Ciudad del Cabo (From Addis Ababa to Cape Town)

My beloved country

South Africa. Home. We made it. Ok, we’re not yet at our final destination, Cape Town, but we’ve survived Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique. And I can honestly say give me the challenge of running another Comrades over backpacking through Africa any day!

And as a welcome home gift, I’ve been diagnosed with a bacterial infection (the dizziness and vomiting started as soon as we crossed the South African border – great timing) and I spent my first few hours in Nelspruit at the doctor’s with a drip in my arm while blood tests were being done. I’ve been given lots of drugs and have just popped a few and had some yoghurt and they seem to be doing the trick. Fingers crossed.

So far, our trip’s been tough and it’s been emotional but we’ve seen and shared some amazing things (and some not so amazing things!) along the way and had loads of fun but now we need a holiday. And that’s exactly what we’re going to have as we make our way to our final destination, Cape Town (but this time in style – in our very own rental car!).

More news about our adventures in my beloved country to follow.

Oh no .. hope you feeling better. Are you anywhere near White River, cause that is where Sharon lives. If you need somewhere to stay, she would love to have you. Take care.
Lots of love xxxxx
