1 month has rolled by. 4 weekends happened too. apart from work for which I am here at South Africa (SA), I have managed to savour myself with some exploration of visiting different places in SA.
my first weekend was an experience of kissing-the-sky at Rand Airport. a group of us had gone there to have our breakfast along the runway. some genius amongst us enquired about access to flying and that happened immediately without a second thought. 25 minutes of riding a small aircraft with a cute pilot is definitely not a bad idea.
the following weekend, I, Anjali, Girish and Sumeet drove through gigantic mountains to reach Hartbeespoort. there, we visited hartbeespoort dam, snake and animal farm and went on a cruise and speed-boat ride. around late afternoon, we headed to a cafe for lunch. and it just began to rain and became a brilliant setting for our meal. till date, we have our share of laughter about that day’s rain.
and last weekend, part of nextgen (Sumeet, Halliq, Ashni, Padmini, Vijaya, Chinmay and myself) along with Anjali and Girish adventured to visit Blyde River Canyon. This visit till date is my most favourite one in South Africa because of how nature unravelled its beauty in every frame of our sight. Starting from the 6.5 hrs long journey from Sandton, Johannesburg to stopping by at exotic places for documenting what our eyes were experiencing in front of us – beautiful panoramic views.
best moments were visiting mac mac waterfalls, panoramic views from god’s window, wonder view, upper viewing point, lower viewing point, world’s end view, horse riding and visiting pothole in Graskop.
given a choice, I would like to explore blyde river canyon once again just to experience its breathtaking beauty.
with all of that, 1 month at south africa has been very exciting and completely adventurous for me. look forward to remaining months of my stay here and exploring newer things.
