    I don't need to travel. I've downloaded Google Earth and can check everything out from there.

    Did you know ... I can go to Japan ... and back?

    Unfortunately, because this country is also a continent, it's a bit difficult to catch a train to Paris for the weekend .

    I'm off to Clevedon/Kawakawa Bay on Saturday. That's a round trip of up to 80km. I'm spreading my wings.

    Lovely landscape.

    Anyway I have been toying with the idea of flying to Beijing and catching the train that goes up through Mongolia and into Russia (all the way to Moscow). Have no idea about cost/length of train trip and the hassles of getting visas. Russia is ****ed anyway being so paranoid that everybody needs a visa to get in, then they would be better off allowing people to enter for a few months visa free, would do a lot better tourism wise. Heard there is an Irish bar in the capital of Mongolia, Ulan Bator, and a bar dedicated to Adolf Hitler there as well, both of which I have to see.

    The Trans-Siberian? Awesome idea! I'm thinking of doing the same if I end up teaching in South Korea at some stage. I think it's be an idea to organise the visa some way in advance! It can be a bit of a hassle, but easier if you go through a travel agency etc. THere's an Irish bar in Surfers by the way

    The Drakensburg? Is that the Blyde River Canyon National Park or something? Went there in 95 - there's a place called God's Window - supposed to be beautiful there - unfortunately we drove about 80 kms and it was covered in fog.

    There's an Irish pub about a 800m walk from my house (and FTR I live about 15km away from Surfers)

    No, the Blyde River canyon is in the same mountain range, but its about 200km further up.. Absolutely stunning place.. My photos are of Champagne Castle which is the highest mountain in Southern Africa

    Cheers. I remember driving around in a little VW Golf trying to find the lookout and getting completely lost, driving through some interesting towns. We'd been told not to go into certain areas when we got the car, but because we were lost we had no idea whether we were in said areas or not.

    Still a lovely part of SA - we stayed here:

    which pretty much meant even doing nothing was pretty damn good. We drove to Hazyview from Skukuza, it was about 40 degrees. Next day it was 13 degrees and we had the log fire in the room going. Unbelieveable weather there.

    You could just catch a bus from your place to Surfers in peak hour traffic. It'd take about as long as the Trans-Siberian from Beijing to Moscow. ****ing GC traffic!!! Mini-rant alert.

    Fantastic, yeah you were probably driving around in the old car I used to drive, and am still obsessed with.. Not too familiar with Mpamulanga province, but I know Jo'burg very well which is probably where you set off.. Skukuza is a fairly safe area relitively speaking.. Only got a couple of pics from up there.. If you ever go back to SA, you can't miss the Central Drakensberg, (lesotho border) area, absolutely phenomenal place..
