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?

About TazzDiscovers 126 Articles
Hi! Welcome to our family travel blog. The TAZZ in TazzDiscovers doesn't imply we drive a Toyota Tazz. TAZZ stands for Tami, Anton, Zac and Zoe. We hope you enjoy the content we share here. We tried the nomad life in 2016 and, while we loved exploring 7 of the 9 regions in South Africa, we found it tough. We are back in Cape Town and enjoy going on mini adventures as a family. Our kids are 11 and 14 years old, and they love the outdoors. Anton is a stay at home dad and helps me to home school the kids, while I hold down a job and find time to write. One day when the kids are older and have settled into their own lives, we plan to explore the rest of South Africa in a 4x4, so that we can also visit Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia. Contact us for unique, family-friendly content about Cape Town, most of South Africa and what we have learned from our travels so far. You are most welcome to check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@tazzdiscovers) to see what we share on a day to day basis. We look forward to working with you.
