Singapore Airport

Heading home

semi-overcast

Well. I'm on my way back home now. I finished my first leg from Jo'burg to Singapore (10 hours) and now the next stretch to Narita (6 hours). It's been a great trip. I made lots of new friends and contacts from all over the world. It was amazing how many English, Dutch and Germans I met in South Africa though. The final days in South Africa I spent with friends that I made along the way from Cape Town. Some I had bumped into on and off for almost 4 weeks. I had three special fairwell dinners with each of them and was able to say a proper goodbye. I will have special memories of South Africa and the people I met there. Looking back, I think the reason that I had such a fun time was that I took the backpackers bus and stayed at hostels. I met like-minded people who were in South Africa for the same reasons as me. It was also great because it was a well-worn route and there were so many different places to stop and visit. Often plans would be changed at the last moment on a single recommendation. I would definitely recommend anyone to go to South Africa for an exciting trip. But now, back to reality. If you're reading this, I want to thank you for taking the time to share my experiences. I hope I shone a good light on South Africa and the many things there are to see and do. All my best to you all.
