Bus travel in South Africa

I have travelled now twice to the cape now. The first trip was on the Translux bus service and although the driving was smooth the seating was rather cramped and not that comfortable. 

My second trip down however was really a dream. I travelled with Intercape sleepliner. The seating was really comfortable and not cramped at all. The seats recline far back and there is a leg support that extends from the seat in front of you. They had great in trip entertainment on over 5 monitors on the upper deck where I travelled and the audio was great.


So my recommendation to anyone traveling from Pretoria or Johannesburg to Cape Town is to take a bus ride on Intercape bus service unless of course you are going to fly down.

The difference in price for myself was only R40.00 more to travel on Intercape and it was definitely worth the few extra bucks for the trip.

I wish you all a fantastic evening weekend ahead and God Bless.

Day Trip in the cape

Had a fantastic day trip to Hermanus and then did a small road trip along the coast through Betty's bay and On to Gordon's Bay for lunch. I do believe that this is the place to live. 

This picture is taken in Hermanus.



Loving it in the Cape and definitely working to relocate here ��

Daily Rant 05-24

First time in a while now that I took a road trip in a vehicle without cruise control. I cannot believe that modern cars do not come standard with cruise control. So for sure I will not be purchasing a vehicle that does not come with cruise control. The other thing I cannot do is drive for more than 30 minutes without any decent music, whether it be my gospel music or my house music. So the trip home next Monday will have decent music or I will not be driving but laying back and snoozing....lol.

Well folks, that is not much of a rant but I thought I needed to get that off my chest. I am also going to probably have a weekly rant instead of a daily because it is not everyday that I get a chance to be out and about to experience things that irritate me :)

Have a fantastic week ahead. 
God Bless.

Daily Rant 05-16

Well considering that it is 7:40am, this may be a little pre-mature. But when you wake up at this time of the morning and the house you are in is at 37deg F (3deg C), you sit and wonder WTF am I doing here. I mean really people, things may be on the tough side economically, but you have to at least keep the place you live in at some sort of bearable and comfortable level. I do not want to be bundled up like a freaking Eskimo when I am inside a house in South Africa.

You would think however that the powers that be, would have the common sense to upgrade one of the basic nescessities of a country.......The damn power supply and grid. Oh never mind, I forgot where I was for a minute there and that there are no people in government here that have any sense.

Done for now :)
God Bless and stay as warm as you can.
