On the FarmDecember 2, 2016 in South Africa
On Thursday afternoon we headed over to the Abbott's farm to see Johannes, Lize, and their girls Emma and Mia. It's always nice to catch up with friends on our trips back to SA, so we're glad we made time to visit, even on such a busy trip.
After leaving the Abbotts, we headed out to the farm for the night, passing the first of what will probably be many signs pointing the way towards our final destination, Graaff-Reinet!
The Farm proved to be the best possible place for some more driving lessons, and I managed to only stall the car about 10 times 😳 But my driving instructor had me doing lots of difficult maneuvers like pulling away on an uphill, reversing up a hill, and driving straight from a stop. My first lesson was when in doubt use the clutch. My second lesson is when in doubt make sure you're in first gear (stalled 3 or 4 times that way).
Some Biltong and avocado toebroodtjies (sandwiches) for lunch, and we're on the road to Graaff-Reinet! Next stop the Murray wedding! 👰🏼👦🏼💍🍾🎉
