    July 27, 2018 in South Africa

    Die totale Mondfinsternis gehörte zu den ganz großen astronomischen Ereignissen unserer Zeit. Mit einer Dauer von 103 Minuten war sie die Längste des 21. Jahrhunderts. Wir haben das Spektakel im Standford Hotel in der Nähe von Bergville erlebt und es war wirklich eindrücklich.

    Sebastian versuchte, die verschiedenen Phasen der Mondfinsternis einzufangen. Das war ein sehr schwieriges Unterfangen. Anna-Sophia zog sich ins Zimmer zurück. Sie brauchte etwas Ruhe von den vielen Eindrücken.

    Day 2 - stop over at Sanford Lodge

    October 19, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    A challenging decent into KZN for those who braved the wind and then a magnificent tailwind into Bergville. Our next stop was Sandford Park Country Hotel.
    Situated in the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains, Sandford Park Country Hotel is a resort steeped in history. Established in 1852, Sandford Park incorporates the history of the region to narrate the essence of the resort. We arrived just before lunchtime and were able to enjoy the facility and probably the massages the cyclists had ever experienced.Read more

    Day 3 - Sandford to Hilton

    October 20, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    An overcast morning and all were in great spirits before heading out towards Hilton. After a hiccup with the bus door we were on our way at 08h00
