... so what did we think about this adventure? Have a look HERE.
Before we sign off, just to complete the story:
After a day in Capetown, reminding ourselves of what an amazing place this town is, next morning we drop Charles back at BOBO Campers and say goodbye to our fellow travellers and friends before taking an early minibus, driven by Rian, to the airport - our flight is earlier than the main tour and via Dubai. Rian reminds us that Namibian dust is still in our veins, so he will obviously see us again before too long. I wonder.. I really wonder...
Final Goodbye Drink on the V&A waterfront in front of a Capetown Christmas Tree;
The flight is quite uneventful apart from an exciting nosebleed for Sue in Dubai airport - which relieves the boredom at any rate. Slightly confusing that we get two breakfasts (two flights) and lunch at 8.30 am UK time. And why is it that I just get off to sleep 10 minutes before a meal is served? Can't fault Emirates though.
Pick up (heavy) luggage.
Arriving back just before Christmas turns out to be a Great Idea as we miss out on all the hysteria, planning, buying. Turns out to be an unexpectedly good one, too. No real Christmas tree, though, for the first time in years - I assemble our Rocket Tree (as it is affectionately known) in the lounge instead which goes down well with our dear daughters.
Time to reflect....
Off to Spain in January... Meet up with friends and live our wonderful Spanish life... Pick up our new van in February/March... New adventures but perhaps not such an exciting year ahead; we need a rest.... but you never know.... Let's do more of our UK coastal tour...
