Protea bids us welcome to South Africa

protea welcome to CapeTown - 1

After their 24-hour journey, the Adventurers landed in Johannesburg shortly after 7:00 am where they discovered the Protea is the flower of South Africa. So they shouldn’t have been surprised to be greeted by a bouquet of them at their hotel, the lovely 12 Apostles located just outside of Cape Town at Camps Bay.

The Adventurers had avoided another long layover in Johannesburg by jumping on a flight that left three hours earlier than their scheduled flight, allowing them to get lunch and a rest before meeting up with their traveling companions, Haydi & David and Amy & Michael.

The six celebrated the start of their journey together at the hotel’s “real deal” restaurant, Azure, which was excellent.

They managed to get their exercise by avoiding moving walkways and taking “real” steps instead as they made their way around the various airports.
