The long drive home

so… we changed plans, the beauty of a road trip is being able to adapt, we decided and I’m not entirely sure why, maybe i couldn’t face the minus degrees of Niewoudstville or the farm dog on the step all night again… but we decided in Brandvlei, after a leisurely lunch and after a casual coffee in Kenhardt, to see if we could drive the remaining 500km to Langebaan in an afternoon. You can!

Augrabies falls to Langebaan is possible!

14 stop and go’s, 10 hours driving, 2 hours worth of rest stops, 2 adults and 1 wonderful two’er over 1000km in 1 day. You can… if you have a wonderful Erica who decided to sleep the last three hours from brandvlei to clan william and woke up in time to see the spectacle that is a full to the brim dam.

You can! but should you??? no… your bum is seriously going to be numb by the time you get home. Your back will hurt and you will feel like a zombie and you will miss the quiver trees, the waterfall, the glacial pavement and the awesome farmstalls.

Wonderful wonderful holiday filled with wonderful memories and a superb spur of the moment push home at the end.
