Adventures of an English/Welsh family in South Africa

Mid September Peter was approached by his company to transfer to South Africa to work, it was a topic we had discussed for a long time, the opportunity to live and work abroad. Our family motto should be...’yeah go on then, why not?’ We think nothing of getting in the car and driving for several hours just to ‘pop somewhere’ and return in the same day. Most of our family and friends need a lot more planning time than us and would probably stay overnight if they travelled to London or Manchester to a football match. So to us a move to South Africa was just another ‘day out’. Nobody took any convincing of moving out, with the internet for face book and mine and Dan’s beloved twitter and of course Skype it wouldn’t be a problem.
We arrived in South Africa on the 19th January 2011.
