Another Idiot Abroad
8th Feb 2016 - South Africa
Planes, trains and automobiles

The big day has arrived and this year's winter trip is under way!

First objective achieved and I've got my co-travelers, complete with passports, onto the rattler, no mean feat for anyone who knows Rohan and Kingy. 

Venturing well out of my comfort zone this time with a first trip ever to South Africa.   New year, new continent,  same old purpose though.   Catching some winter sun,  watching England play cricket and having a bit of a gloat via the medium of this blog.  With Kingy and Ro in tow,  there should be potential for some comedy as well. 

The plans are all in place,  rattler down to the smoke.  First class no less, lovely cup of tea and a biscuit already done and dusted.  Across to Paddington later and on to Heathrow for a flight overnight to Johannesburg courtesy of Virgin Atlantic and then a connection to Cape Town to be there in time for tea tomorrow afternoon. 

Kingy has just confirmed his own objectives.  To nick a rock from Robben Island and to get a Moeen Ali beard.   Sights have been set high.  I'll just be glad to get these clowns to Cape Town in one piece. 

Good times....
