As a lot of you probably know, I have been in South Africa for the past month, and Internet has been scarce, meaning it has been very hard to blog. I’ve done a few Instagram posts explaining my absence, and I have also done a New Years post, which you can have a look at here.

This new series is called ‘Travel Diaries’ and is going to be all about my holiday in South Africa.

The Flight To South Africa

The first place I stopped in was Durban, which is my hometown and where I spent the first 4 years of my life. We were extremely busy in Durban, visiting heaps and heaps of old friends as well as some family. We spent a lot of time with my cousins, which was nice as I hadn't seen them in 5 years. They had all grown up so much, and to be honest I thought it was going to be a bit awkward seeing as though we hadn't seen them in so long, but it was the opposite of awkward. We had so much fun together, it was probably one of the highlights of my trip. 

Walking a Nature Trail

A stand-out event that happened in Durban was that we went to Etala Game Reserve.

We went on a safari with a ranger and he took us around the reserve, looking at all the animals. Etala was beautiful and I would highly recommend it. We saw Giraffes, Rhino, Buck, Ostriches and Zebra and it really gave me the true african experience.

The rest of our time in Durban was spent seeing family and friends.
That's all for this Travel Diaries post, the next one will be about the city of Newcastle.
