26 October 05 - 13:09 Back again!South Africa was FA-BU-LOUS!
The trip to and from were pretty hard, but the beauty of Capetown was worth the stress.
I finally arrived early Wednesday morning, flew Tuesday night from Frankfurt to Capetown with South African Airlines...really nice flight, I *love* the PVS - Personal Video System :).
In a nutshell; went to the wine estate 'Vergelegen' on Wednesday, saw jumping whales and youngs in Hermanus bay on Thursday (W-O-W!!! Made shitloads of photos) and climbed the Table Mountain on Friday.
The days were pretty packed, got the most out of the time!
The flight back was a disaster :( :(
We knew it would be full, which is the usual downside of flying on cheap airline staff/standby tickets. I was however never taken of a flight while already sitting in the plane! Bummer...
To keep a long story short, together with two others having standby tickets (Frank and Willem-Jan) we stayed one extra day in a nice B&B (The Tyger Table Villas Guest house), thanks to the owner Annette for the great service!
We flew back with British Airways Saturday night to London, arriving Sunday late morning in Amsterdam.
Yet another great experience, will put some photos on the web soon!
