Our visit to South Africa

In April we made a last minute decision to visit the family in South Africa. We already had a camper van booked for a local holiday, but then decided to visit the family instead.

Christie, not happy to see us leaving and hoping to fit into the luggage.

We decided to fly over Singapore to visit our friend.
These flowers are real and it is amazing.

Our oldest son, Nico is busy with his Private Pilot Licence and we watched him flying.
