YOU READY FOR A BIG ADVENTURE? 🚴🚴♀️ We're rolling into @cityofsydney's #bigadventure this Saturday from 9am in Sydney Party. Bring your family and come down for some outdoor fun. Be sure to come hungry - we'll be there to make sure your lunch is sorted 😉👌
🇿🇦 Today we headed to breakfast at the popular Pablo Eggs Go Bar in Melville, rated the best breakthrough in Joberg! We then headed off for the 27 boxes markets and were disappointed to learn the they were closed on Monday’s. This was a great shame as it was a novel collection of shops and stores housed in shipping containers. Undeterred we headed to Soweto for a bit of browsing before we met our host Ntsiki for our be part of Soweto experience. This trip proved to be one of the best experiences of our entire Africa adventure. We wandered the streets of Soweto and looked at the two houses of Nelson Mandela and then that of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. This was interspersed with stories of the Soweto uprising and apartheid. We heard all about the death of Hector Pietersen and the role played by Mbuyisa Makhubo. Later in the day we were fortunate to meet Makhubo’s sister - a very surreal and sobering experience. We spent almost an hour in the Hector Pietersen museum and then moved on to a local brewery and sampled the craft beers brewed there. The tour finished with sunset at one of the local pubs in Soweto. We stayed on after Ntsiki left us and enjoyed a few drinks and food. 🇿🇦 #caseandkevafrica , #ontheroadagain , #johannasburg , #joburg , #mabenong , #soweto , #whatwilltomorrowbring , #bigadventure , #rollonafrica , #southafrica , #africa , #africanroadtrip2018 , #caseandkevdoAfrica , #frogandtoad ,

🇿🇦 Didn’t look too good earlier on today as it was pouring and very cold. Not too bad really when you consider that we have had pretty good weather most of the trip. We started off having a look at the African craft market where there were many stalls selling various items and then moved on to the Rosebank Sunday Market which is set in a fourth floor car park! There were many places to eat and a set up bar. All sorts of arts and crafts and a never ending selection of colour, smell and sounds to tickle the senses. We moved to the Gold Reef area to the Apartheid Museum which illustrates the rise and fall of South Africa’s segregation and oppression. We could have spent hours here - unfortunately we ran out of time. The museum had a unique way of making you see and feel how things may have been at that time by forcing us to assume different races and enter through different entrances etc. After we were forced out of the museum we collected our things and moved to our industrial loft style apartment in the Mabenong area of Joburg. Our evening meal was enjoyed in an Ethiopian restaurant sampling many of their different foods and their textures. 🇿🇦 #caseandkevafrica , #ontheroadagain , #johannasburg , #joburg , #mabenong , #whatwilltomorrowbring , #bigadventure , #rollonafrica , #southafrica , #africa , #africanroadtrip2018 , #caseandkevdoAfrica , #frogandtoad ,
🇿🇦 Today was a little sad for us as we left the beautiful beaches of Tanzania for the airport to return to Johannesburg for the last few days of our adventure. The trip to the airport wasn’t without intrigue though as the local police stopped our driver and questioned him for sometime over some unknown issue - all ended well though! We flew into Johannesburg for the second time in a raging thunderstorm and were shocked at how cold it was - hopefully it will warm up for the next couple of days! We made our way to our accommodation in the middle eastern section of the city and enjoyed a meal of chicken swarma and delicious meats from the tandoor! 🇿🇦 #caseandkevafrica , #ontheroadagain , #johannasburg , #joburg , #whatwilltomorrowbring , #bigadventure , #rollonafrica , #southafrica , #africa , #africanroadtrip2018 , #caseandkevdoAfrica , #frogandtoad ,
When you vacation are you a souvenir collector? Do you stick to any special souvenir? Postcards, t-shirts, spoons, hats?
I usually don’t visit gift shops on vacation, I’d rather find the thrift stores and antique shops, but I have a small souvenir mug collection at our summer cabin from places we have been. We use them every morning for tea or coffee. They are a fun reminder of vacations past.
**After an overnight resting stop in Missouri we are on our way to Flippin, Arkansas! .
AND...These great vintage souvenirs are in the shop now. The shop is mobile and open!!
