We have just arrived in South Africa and are currently enjoying some mango juice, a sandwich and a salad whilst catching up on all the news we missed during our 11 hour flight (a surprising amount). Thankfully, Arsenal managed to hold onto their 2-0 lead over Crystal Palace and I am very much enjoying the endless replays of “the Giroud goal” on all of OR Tambo’s big screens.
Claire seems very excited to be back in SA after a 19 year absence and I am very much looking forward to lying on a beach and changing my socks again (it’s the small things that count and it’s really really hot here). The weather could not be any more different to the dreary rainy day we left in London just over 12 hours ago, although I suspect I will come to miss English rain over the coming months.
Anyway, this is just a short post to officially open our blog and to give you an idea of what to expect from us on our travels. We want this blog to serve as a central page for all of our various accounts (YouTube, Instagram and Google photos) and links to all of these can be found at the bottom of the home page of this blog. We will also be updating the blog when we feel we have something to say and also to give some context to the photos and videos we post. To simplify matters, you can sign up on the home page to receive email alerts when a new post is published.
Both Claire and I are really looking forward to sharing some of our trip with you! Enjoy!
