We left Cape Town yesterday on our first long drive with the Van. I will be honest, changing from a modern day car to a vehicle that is over 40 years old, has been quite the test and adjustment to make. We were stressed and even though we have done everything to ensure the van is safe, it is still a small truck that bounces and vibrates and plods along! But with this first drive, we reached our first destination and it was exactly what we needed. A beautiful setting next to the Breede River, at a campsite and game farm, called Klipkrans. It is basic but has everything we need! Fireplaces and little Braai’s, warm showers and good toilets. The river is majestic as fuck! The weather will be 32 degrees tomorrow so some swimming and tanning is happening. Yesterday and today we continued with making our van a home, the little touches and added decor to make it more comfy and homelike. Its been a great start to our trip and after months of moving, planning, working and getting ready for this trip, it has all been worth it so that we could unwind and relax with only the sounds of birds, crickets and frogs.
