Route from Colesberg: Colesberg, Middelburg, Cradock, Cookhouse, Somerset East, Addo Elephant National Park, Port Elizabeth

Here we go. We are in town to see the Ivory Coast v Portugal game this afternoon. First game and we can’t wait, it should be a qualilty match. We are trying to ignore the wet and cold weather. A massive thankyou to Will & Niki for letting us stay at the farm over the last few weeks – the rest was well needed.

We stayed in Jeffreys Bay overnight, a hours drive away from Port Elizabeth and one of the surfing capitals in the world. It took five hours to get from the farm in Colesberg to the coast.

From here we will base ourselves in Cape Town for a few weeks before coming back here to watch the first QF game. Bun’s birthday is on Wednesday, so we hope to be in Cape Town then!
