When you look at the clock and think, "Its nearly gate closing time now" and you are not even there!

OR when the neighbourhood dogs barking start sounding like Zebras calling! :shock:

You promise the family that you will braai some juicy steaks that evening. On the way to the butcher, you spot a new book with the words 'Kruger National Park' on the cover. You buy the book and treat the family to a King Pie and a glass of Oros for dinner.

You swear blind you are never going back to ‘that place’ because of the perceived deterioration of facilities and services, but no sooner do you get back home you start planning and booking your next trip to ‘that place’. It happens every year.
