    Sunset

    July 5, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    And so the sun sets on my time in Mosselbaai, however the trip is not over yet.

    Yesterday when Pieter asked me to join him on a hunting trip in the place of someone who pulled out last minute, I made a very uncharacteristic impulsive decision to cancel my flight home and join him.

    Yes yes, it still took me 4 hours to make the decision after I weighed up all my options. But its at least 4 weeks quicker than I would normally take with big decisions like this.

    Back to the time in Mosselbaai, it was mostly work but the fact that Isabel was here for part of the time made it feel a bit like a holiday, so glad she came down! As always a pleasure to spend time with Piet and Anthonette.

    Surfers chip roll

    July 5, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    I had a surfers chip roll once at university and I remember it blow my hair back back then, so I just had to try one again.

    Biggest let down ever! I realized today that back the quantity was what I enjoyed, no matter how average it tasted as long as it filled me up.

    Luckily today I am more about how it taste than quantity.

    Sondag middag

    July 2, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Ons eet middagete saam die walvisse, by Kaai4, ek eet heerlike mossels en roostekoek uit 'n blikbord, natuurlik kry die kelner eers my bestelling verkeerd maar die uitsig en goeie geselskap maak gelukkig op daarvoor. Daarna duik ons almal vir 'n luilekker slapie.

    Sondag stappie

    July 2, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Na kerk het ons vir n stap uitstappie gegaan op Saint Blaize trial, dis 'n pragtige sonskyn dag in Mosselbaai en dis heerlik om so in vars die seelug te wees. In die verte sien ons 'n walvis blaas.

    Dis opvallend hoe lui die mense is, hulle sit in hulle karre langs die see en lees koerant met skoothondjies en kinders wat op die agterste sitplekke watsapp. Wat het geword van uitklim en hardloop? Die surfers is plek plek bietjie naby aan die klippe by die punt...vreesloos tussen al die haaie hier in die donker Kaapse waters.

    Seaside vibes

    July 1, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    After an early morning facial and some exploring in town. Anthonette and I headed home to relax. After my lazy Saturday afternoon nap we headed for a walk with Nala. The boys got back from golf and I squeezed in a quick 3km run before the sun sets over the water. It is so beautiful around the point, I spot a sea lion and seagulls. Locals are fishing walking their dogs or simply just taking in the fresh air.

    A quiet night with some delicious homemade Alfredo to end the day.

    Mosselbaai

    June 30, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Dis 'n heerlike dag by die see, tussen toets uitwerk en studente queries vang ek 'n midday draffie. Ons kap 'n lunchie by Delfino's en daarna job ons almal weer.

    Ek gaan vir stappie met die sonsondergang terwyl Piet en Dolf n draf. Wat 'n voorreg om so remotely te kan werk.

    Dis lekker by die see.

    Mango pilot

    June 25, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Almost all my school mates are pilots, so its about time I randomly step on a plane with one of them at the controls.

    I almost missed the flight because I went to the wrong gate. When I realized it was the wrong gate, I ran to the right gate and was the last one to board the plane ✈️.

    I walked in and saw the front seats were open so I decided to just take a seat there, as I stored my bag, I noticed Steyn in the Cockpit. Naturally I shouted "Steyn!" and when he saw me he shouted "Come here!"

    Never did I think I will get to sit in the jump seat when I checked in this morning.

    It was a cool experience to see my friend atwork!
