2.4.2013


We all embarked in the car around 9 am.
I do not have the heart to return to the park and then the path is long (for me) to Upington, and I have a precious life, a little girl and this road is not the most secure .... I have found even dangerous in some places and not worth 120 km per hour allowed :shock:

We all arrived "in one piece", I put my precious passengers downtown. Tonight I go with my friends ... for a blowout (big bouffe) :dance: and it was :clap: :clap: :clap:

The next day, thanks to the change of SA airlines schedule, there are 7/8 hours waiting to J'bourg. I liquefies myself, I do not know where to put me, I have pain everywhere, we say that travel broadens the mind, and I can tell you they distort person just over twenty :lol: !
It was an ordeal. And to top it all, winter is not over yet in Switzerland :naughty:
and still today 26.5.2013 :shock:

En route, we saw African Wild cat, once more :dance: and several Suricates :dance:

KTC – Honey Moon


18.3.2013

Once again, I put everything in the car, in a multitude of small trips and finally ready, I'll get my license.

Oops, a tire is flat ... Mr chief of police and Madam, give me a hand to inflate the tire, take me to the workshop repair and "in a blink of an eye" they fix it, they are artists, and I'm going again :wink:

A quick glance at Samevioloeiing as usual before I embark myself on the road of the dunes in the Auob riverbed

Again, a Cheetah faces me, I am alone, of course at this hour, they all run away at the opening of the gates ... :?

He climbs into the red dunes, on my left side, I bypasses the dunes, I do not see it back ... and because it is hidden between two small bushes, sitting ... looking around for one of these antelopes, it will have for dinner :hmz:
Not even have time to position myself, I was most ready to warn cars that might arise, and to cut off the road ... or worse, crush ... to see where almost everyone drives in this paradise :rtm:
