During the Christmas Holidays my Family came to visit me in South Africa. We decided to go to Cape Town, since I’ve never been there and because there are more things to see than in Pretoria.
But the flight tickets to Cape Town from Pretoria are waaayy more expensive during the festive season. So Damian (my friend) suggested to rent a car and offered to drive us to Cape Town. From Pretoria! Which is like from Jakarta to Bali (of course without Indonesia’s traffic).
about +/- 1600 km
Our journey started from Pretoria on 23 Dec 2011 at 21.30 we arrived in Cape Town on 24 Dec 2011 at 15.00!! It was crazy!! the Roads of South Africa and the landscape was just worth the long ride.. :)

I remember the time when we celebrate her birthday in Sari pan pacific hotel with the family and her friends. she looked so happy. I wish I could see that smile on her face again, I wish I could wish her “happy birthday” personally and give her a giant-bear-sister hug.
This year I sent her balloons and a card. I hope she knows that I’m thinking of her. Where ever she is now, I know that is a much better place.
I love you mboadek. Happy 28th Birthday. Hope you like the balloons :) I’ll see you in my dreams.
