I like travelling. As a small kid we used to leave home at 3 in the morning to go on holiday to the sea. Just like the other real vaalies (I was one ok), and as my gran would recall I loved the sea and not the sand. I still love the sea and not the sand.
So every year until I moved down to durban we went on holiday. This stopped for a while, people living near the coast are not huge travellers. I still have friends who has never left kzn and I still can't wrap my head around that. It's abnormal, well that's what I think. Come on people live a little.
I think there's small signs that the travel bug has bitten. When sunday lunches with the family becomes once a month, trips to the beach aren't good enough anymore, when small road trips occur (3-4 hours) and frequently pop up.
Spending quite a lot of time in the car isn't something new, except getting irritated with the same 5 faces that you see almost everyday and now have to spend time in the car with. Driving from a small place called Marloth Park (30km from Mozambique and 50km from Swaziland) to the Kgalagadi with family isn't really recommended. -Blame it on the grumpy people. -
One trip I kind of regret not doing was the Botswana, Zambia and Namibia. Oh well lessons learned. I recommend taking 2 phones and an iPod with maybe a book. Good music is always needed if you and the people you're travelling with aren't listening to the same music.
Talking about music: tune into Jon $avage's show tonight at 10pm to 12am. He's playing some mutemath, vampire weekend, INXS, blood red shoes, something VERY SPECIAL and will have ASH in studio.
