I’ve got Africa on my mind! These photos are from a shop in the Clifton area of Cincinnati…
Lots of progress made so far–
- Airfare purchased
- Trip Insurance purchased
- Wheeled convertible duffel bag bought
- 30 degree 2 lb. compressible sleeping bag bought
- North Face Hiking Shoes bought
I’ll do a post about the gear I’m taking at some point!
I decided against the couch surfing…the three people I contacted haven’t responded yet…so I booked a hostel (private room) that looks really cool through Hostel World. Also, decided on my itinerary for the four days in Cape Town–one day hiking Table Mountain and taking the cable car down; one or two days of unplanned activities around Cape Town–maybe the hop-on/hop-off bus; one day an organized tour (found through Trip Advisor) that hits all of the major sites–such as…
Clifton, Bantry Bay
The spectacular Chapman’s peak drive (if open)*
Hout Bay and boat trip to Seal Island
Visit to Simon’s Town and the Historic Mile
Cape of Good Hope – The most South-Westerly point of the African continent
Most of my itinerary is finished, including the currency conversion rates for the six different countries and the time differences.
It’s fun planning the trip also…but my brain starts to hurt! Maybe because I try to get it all done so quickly! I wanted to thank those of you that gave me some wonderful tips on what to take and what to do!
Have a terrific weekend!
