Halfway through the week, I know, it makes me so angry to think I'm wishing my week away like that. But it's only because I miss Mr. F = FRIDAY!!!! :)
As promised here is the first Part of my 2 Part July Holiday Blog Posts. Why 2 Parts you may ask? Well duh, we went to 2 places for holiday so each deserves their own post!
We took on the
We hit the road rather early again the Saturday morning. We arrived at Jackalberry Ridge around late lunch time. It was so nice going from freezing cold Gauteng to warm and sunny Mpumalanga! We did not pack the right clothing at all! haha. We came prepared for proper winter weather. Well Surprise! haha
Anyway, we got our Tent keys and went to unpack. We were really impressed with how neat and put together everything was. Someone came to clean the braai area, kitchen and tent every single day. Bonus! No dishes for meeee!

|Each Tent Area has it's own splash pool, lapa and boma area.|

Cedric really wanted to make a Potjie one night so we literally drove Komatipoort to shreds to find one. And we did!
Just look at how cute these cold drink bottles are!!! They are mini ones!
But most important of all. We loved spending some great time together without the hustle and bustle of the City. Then before we knew it we were hit with a 10 ton hammer and we were already packing our bags (sob) and ready for the last part of our holiday! You could say we were rather emotional. But we sucked it up and Friday morning at exactly 06:15 we were packed and ready to go. We decided to drive through the Kruger Park as not one of us have been there before. Shocker I know, especially for me! So we entered at the Crocodile Bridge gate and had to exit from the Orpen gate. That = 175km's. It took us 5 hours to drive that! Why you may ask? Well the speed limit is 50 in the Park, and the people pile up if they see a animal. My honest opinion. I can now say "I've been there, done that, and got the t-shirt"! Never again. Unless we stay in a secluded camp. All those people around the animals just drives me insane!
But anyway, I think that was also just the irritation levels talking because our holiday was nearing an end.
So yes, that is a round up of our first 7 nights holiday.
Stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow!
