A-Road-Tripping We Will Go

One week until our very first 'real road trip' experience.

For the last two years my guys have flown up to PE for the Sevens Rugby International Tournament - they usually fly for a weekend. This year we have decided to go up as a family for the event but to build a holiday around it.

In preparation for this I watched Groupon for accommodation specials in the areas we planned to visit and came upon some amazing deals.

Our first stop is Sedgefield for 3 nights at Shearwater Resort. We love Sedgefield and this will be our second stay in the lovely little town.

From there we head up to PE and arrive on the Friday and spend 4 nights at a lovely self-catering cottage (Abalone Place)  in Seaview which I found via SafariNow website. While in PE I plan to meet up with two of my blogging buddies; one of which I have never met before!

From PE we continue up the coast to Grahamstown to spend 2 nights with wonderful friends of ours who relocated from Cape Town a few years ago. They live on a small-holding; while they both hold down regular jobs they also breed miniature horses as a hobby so you can imagine the kids excitement at being able to see these little animals!

We begin our long drive home on Thursday 12/12 and spend one night in Mossel Bay before setting the compass for MCGREGOR where we will round out our road trip experience by decompressing and spending lots of time with my folks before they head off to my sister in Luxembourg for Christmas.

Exciting times; hopefully a family holiday the tribe will enjoy and remember for years to come!

Sounds fantastic, have a fabulous time and a safe journey filled with memories of a lifetime. Ally would love the miniature horses, so cute. Can highly recommend Bottlierskop outside Mosselbay too.

Take care

So sorry I missed seeing you. Just couldn't get it together at such short notice.
