Happy Holidays and Lottery winners!

We are getting close to Christmas and it’s seven weeks since I have come home from South Africa and the Cape to Cape adventure. Seven weeks was the same time spent this autumn to cover the two continents in the adventure of the year. At least from my perspective!

Shark bait…

Today the few days of vacation turned into a visit to the Table mountain. The cable car had been closed for a couple of days due strong winds but was reopened this morning. We felt lucky even if the wait for the tickets and the cable car took over 1,5 hours. Many... read more

Going home!

I must confess that I can already miss the everyday adventures with new tasks and flying to new and unknown territory. Even if the updates late in the evenings, with very poor internet at the best, was tiring and difficult – I also kind of miss that. Now I do... read more

Preparing for a boat trip

The container arrived as planned to Stellenbosch airfield mid-day. I think we might have chosen the warmest day so far this summer! When removing the wings one has to get some support to the top wing. Then you can dismantle the bottom wing and the inter-plane struts.... read more

Look back: Plan B

Today I have been spending time with my wife and kids. I also went to a hardware store to buy some stuff needed when loading the aeroplane into the container tomorrow Tuesday. Let’s do a look back, and the precautions I did take just in case I would have ended... read more

And after the landing….

Stellenbosch: Journey’s End

Cape Agulhas: Where two oceans meet

It feels strange to be writing this last update. Don’t worry – there will be more blog posts, photos and stories to come, but this is the last update, and my last overnight stay, in the flying adventure of Cape to Cape. I am now at L’Agulhas: the... read more

2 days to go!

A great BBC interview this morning! Being “on the air” at the crack of dawn is  a bit demanding, but good fun, and I think it went well! I Left Kimberley this morning after saying farewell to Kent and Mark, and we all set off towards the old battlefield... read more

21 October: Diamonds and Boer Vikings

Left Swartkop AFB this morning after getting a very friendly goodbye from the military staff there. They seemed so fond of my DH60 that I could have left her in good hands there, but would probably never get her back! It was a short flight to Orient, where I met up... read more
