We went for a walk on Leisure Isle and caught some of the #sunset

Just when we thought our laptop packing up was the biggest obstacle we could face while blogging our way around South Africa, our car starts making a funny noise. Knysna Volkswagen says its the gearbox that needs to be stripped down and repaired.

If tomorrow wasn’t a public holiday, they could have started working on it today and I could have the car back by Friday. Since it is a public holiday tomorrow, the parts would only arrive on Friday…and we’re booked into Plettenberg Bay from Thursday. As it stands, we will have to cross fingers and hope the car makes it to Jeffrey’s Bay (this is were the next VW service centre is) and plan to stay there for about a week so that the car can be fixed. Which means a lot of walking unless we can borrow a car to get around in.

In the meantime, our explorations will have to be as car free as possible to minimize damage, so send us some ideas of some car free ways to get around. Tuk tuks maybe? Or taxis?

This is a family travel blog and we are based in Cape Town South Africa. Our daughter is 9 years old and our son is 12. We sold our house, switched mainstream school for home school and headed out on an 11 week road trip around South Africa in our Volkswagen Polo, to encourage others to invest in our beautiful country. We plan to explore Limpopo and the North West Province once we've managed to secure funds and a 4x4 so that we can also visit Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia.
