The Farm - Trackers South Africa

Our first few days at Trackers were days of exploration and rediscovery. This is where Paul's parents have lived for the last thirty years and where I met Paul 24 years ago.

Traveling from Highveld to the Lowveld

We spent a great week in Johannesburg with Paul's sister and I was blessed with being able to meet up with two of my high school friends. Once we had all got over our jet lag we took a 500+ km drive from Johannesburg to Trackers. It was a long day but a happy one.

We drove via the Voortrekker Monument (I will share more on this next month when I'm back in Australia). I visited this monument back in 1981 and it made such an impression on me I've wanted to return ever since. We spent two hours exploring the monument before resuming our trip.

There are salesmen at most traffic light intersections

10 200 km

We are safe and sound in South Africa fellowshipping with family and friends of days gone past. Here is a photo journal of our trip from Melbourne to Sydney and then on to Johannesburg.

It is 10 200 km from Sydney to Johannesburg. The flight path takes you south over Antactica.

Our day started at 4 am in preparation for our trip to Melbourne International at 4:30 am. It was a 22 hour day altogether.

We flew on QANTAS

I love the look and feel of our New Zealand passports.

Time is relative in South Africa.






Totsiens
Untill next time
