Durban involved more laziness and some family time with my aunt, uncle and cousins.

I wonder if Chloe will start a new trend?

Tys and Mish's gorgeous girl, Chloe - will she start a new trend?

Alberto celebrated his birthday in Durban and we started the day off with a walk along the beachfront followed by lunch at a nice pub overlooking the Valley of a Thousand Hills (which is conveniently situated just past the Comrades Wall of Honour so I got to see my name in lights – or rather fixed to a concrete brick – and it felt quite cool).

We did do a little bit of exercise and hired a tandem bike to ride along the esplanade, we hopped on the Skycar for a trip to the top of the Durban football stadium, had a picnic on the pier by the Umhlanga lighthouse and you guessed it – we did a bit more shopping too!

That is amazing you have your name on a plaque – I’m very proud of you! Must be great to finally catch up with family and have your feet on some more familiar land!

Happy Birthday Alberto!

Felicidades artista! Tengo que confesar que llevo tela de tiempo sin leer el blog, pero me pienso poner al día.
Por lo pronto vero que habéis llegado sanos y salvos a la tierra prometida!! Enhorabuena, eso ya es todo un hito!
no recuerdo bien, durban no es el final del viaje todavía no?
Un abrazo a los dos

Angel! Que pasa campeon! Hoy mismo hemos volado de Durban a Ciudad del Cabo, que si que es el final del viaje de verdad. Ya contaremos algunas historias en las proximas dos o tres entradas.

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog
in the near future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m
looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
