The good and the bad and the ugly of the weekend

Unread postby Karin Mitton » Mon Jun 29, 2015 2:55 pm

The Good -
My weekend started off on a great note - booked my Kruger trip for March 2016
2 nights at Olifants (first time visiting this camp)
1 night Satara (first time visiting this camp)
3 nights Skukuza
1 night Crocodile Bridge

The Bad -
after completing the booking I left work and got stuck in traffic for 2 hours :wall: :wall:


The Ugly -
On Sunday someone drove into the back of my car, and it was towed (again!).
Luckily everyone in both vehicles are fine. But I am rather speechless. Those who followed my Kruger Quickie TR will know of my recent vehicular issues. And to have this happen so soon - needless to say there were some tears. I just could not believe it happened.

But I will ignore the bad and the ugly, and focus on the good start to the weekend.

The Good: Another of your TR's to look forward to.

The Bad: We are going to wait for quite a while before we get it.

The Ugly: That you should have to go through the trauma of someone driving into you.

Be strong and start the planning. I am sure that you will love both Oliphants and Satara so a great trip to look forward to.

Neither can I Karin! Maybe you should sell the car and buy another one. :tongue:

That's the way to go! :clap: :clap:

As leervis has said, you will enjoy your first stay at Olifants and Satara, and you will have a fantastic time in Kruger in March 2016. :dance: :dance:

I agree with leervis, Karin. You will really enjoy your stay at both new camps :D .

The problem is that choosing accommodation for your next trip will not be that easy as in the past anymore, because you will want to stay at those camps again :whistle: .

Hope the car is not damaged to badly and can be fixed :roll: .

Oh Karin, I am so sorry to hear about the ugly. :shock: It does seem that this has not been your car year. I am pleased to hear that no one was hurt.

I think that you are really going to enjoy the central area. 8) I am really looking forward to hearing more.
