Following the Cup

The last weeks I spent exploring South Africa on a roadtrip, driving more than 4000km across this beautiful country, taking in the world cup spirit and loving every minute of it! Internet has been rather sporadic, so here's a quick recap of my whereabouts in the previous weeks.

Our journey took us from the highveld of Johannesburg for the Germany-Ghana match via the capital Pretoria on to Pilanesberg National Park and then to Bloemfontein in the Free State, where we attended the England-Germany game; and so we got a first impression of the rainbow nation and proud host country of the World Cup.

The second part of our roadtrip brought us from Gaborone to the Drakensberg and a quick visit to Lesotho, then to Durban and from there to the Wild Coast where we spent a couple of days on the beach.

In Port Elisabeth we saw Germany's last victory against Uruguay and then hit the road again to reach our final destination for this trip: Cape Town

Thanks to Björn for encouraging me to do this trip and being such wonderful company, to Keith for being a great travel buddy and to all the people we met along the way for their amazing hospitality and for sharing some insights of this fascinating country with us!
