My Wanderlust

I am so excited I could almost burst.

If you read my post from a few weeks ago you will know my husband and I are getting 3 days away to ourselves while my mom and step-dad come visit to look after the girls.

Technically they are looking after the girls but I think we all know that the girls will breathe fresh life into them and recharge their batteries, whilst spoiling the girls with love and attention, as all grandchildren do and deserve.

But nonetheless our trip is booked, our route is planned, our accommodation reserved.

I love travelling. It’s not about the destination for me. It’s about the journey. The adventure. The scenery. The feast on the eyes!

We’ve planned an ambitious journey considering it’s my first time on a ‘biking tour.

If you don’t already know, we’re going on a motorbike. A BMW, GS 1200 Adventure.

Yes, I’m nervous. Yes, I know it’s ambitious. Yes, I want to do it.

My husband has made sure I’m kitted out correctly (he always is!). My kids are in the best hands possible, and our lives are in order … read here if you don’t know what I mean.

Our plan is to do 3 countries in 3 days! Like I said, ambitious. FYI, not only am I a novice, but I had both hips replaced in 2015, less than 2 years ago. #THR

Day 1: South Africa to Swaziland

Day 2: Swaziland to South Africa to Lesotho

Day 3: Lesotho too home, South Africa.

If you aren’t already following me on Instagram, I suggest you do! I will post awesome photos along the way.

  1. Safe travels, take care of the “mobile traffic lights” AKA cows that appear from nowhere in Swaziland. If you’re going through Oshoek and out through Golela, there may be queues. Have loads of fun!

    1. Thanks for the tips. I don’t recognize those names but my husband is chief organizer so will check with him.

    1. That’ll teach me to stick to posting from the laptop instead of the ipad! Thanks again – link is now working.

    1. Thanks. I’m a bit nervous, but more so about actually sitting on the bike for the length of time it’s going to take us, but I’ve been assured we will stop often.

        1. haha … I’m also terrified of nodding off. Husband says he’s going to strap me to him just in case! lol

          1. Ya he got me one of those radios that they link up via helmets so we can talk to each other and play music etc.

  2. OH WOW! This sounds simply amazing!!! What a great adventure. Hope you have a safe and fabulous holiday. I look forward to reading about it. Thanks for sharing with #bigpinklink

  3. Wowee I am very impressed. My grandparents went to Swaziland and thought it was an awesome experience. You certainly are going to have an amazing time, can’t wait to hear about it! Enjoy and good luck on your bike x #blogginggoodtime

  4. Wow, this sounds amazing and I just know you’re going to have an amazing time! Can’t wait to read about it – your girls will love spending this time with their grandparents too! How lovely!
