{Travel} Let's take on the Road - Mossel Bay here we come!

The holiday FINALLY starts, and the car is packed and we are ready to hit the road! Seeing as I still worked the Friday we decided to make the road more bearable and sleep over halfway. Unfortunately we waited for our famous no.99 again but managed to land ourselves a cancellation spot. {I would say this is the first good sign to a great holiday}.

Here we come Trompsburg, and I would guess that most of you like myself at the time must be like, where the hell is this place? Well it is exactly in the middle of Bloemfontein (Free State) and Colesberg.

Cedric stopped at my office at exactly 12:45 and we hit the road, excited about being free from work for the next 15 days.
This little town is filled with old houses and a coffee shop that I just wanted to stop at but unfortunately we were running against the clock.
We saw lots of pretty windmills {you should know by now how obsessed I am with these}, and clouds that looked fluffy enough to jump on.

Our bags are packed and we are ready to go!
Cute Windmill between all the cactus...
Finally arrived at our stopover for the night! Hello Trompsburg...
The place was extremely neat and well looked after....
The breathtaking scenic route through the Meiringspoort Pass. {Irritating to drive 40km/h though}
The next morning we were up bright and early ready to hit the road again for the last leg of our trip. We arrived alive, and went straight to Sea Gypsy to go celebrate my sister's husband's birthday.
The day was filled with a lot of driving and special moments.

Cedric, Landan and myself.
The birthday boy and my beautiful sister.
My daddy and his other half {heart}
One of those "special moments" caught on camera! {love}
Seafood platters! Yum {wish we took this}
And that my dear Journeyers are the roundup from our first day of holiday!!!!
Stay tuned to read all about the drop dead yummy, mouthwatering food we ate next week!
Much Love
