The weekend again

Yes it is the weekend again and I must say that today is really one of those awesome days that one has from time to time. That sun is out in full force and for a winter day the temperature is just right. I took a walk around our neighborhood earlier today and it was nice to see all the birds and critters out and about busy scouring around for some food. It was a great reflection on just how awesome God is and how he always provides for all his creation. I love being out and about and appreciating things in nature, it gives me a great sense of gratitude. The greatest thing to me is the tranquil feeling of being connected to everything around me. Walking on the grass barefoot and feeling that earthly connection to me is one of the most relaxing things to do and having the sun out shining on it all is a huge bonus.

I would like to invite anyone that is feeling stressed to take some time out and find a nice patch of grass and just take a slow walk barefooted around on it and just clear your mind and thank God for all the good in your life. If that does not help then call me a liar :)

I just hope that you all have a fantastic weekend and that th coming week will be filled with love and joy for you all.

God Bless.

Tough to be back

I returned back home to South Africa in May 2015. To start with I have had a tough time getting my drivers license sorted out due to the incompetence of the officials at the Johannesburg International airport. For some mysterious reason there is no record of me coming back home and so they cannot convert my license from my ID book to the new card system until they have proof of my return. After much negotiating they have accepted a copy of my flight ticket and a copy of my emergency travel documents as proof, so now we just wait for the officials in Cape Town to approve this.

They other major snag I have run into is finding employment. To date I have sent out over 200 applications and have only had 3 responses which I am still waiting to hear about. I think this has been the roughest part of my adult life having to depend on others for my survival. With no money or income things are really tough and an eye opener to how things have really become in this country.

I just pray and hope for the best and that things will change soon. I will continue to blog as I get the chance to find Internet access which I must add is another huge disappointment for me. 

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

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 ��
