Under ConstructionSouth Africa: Trip to Durban (15th to 24th of August 2014)

On the 15th we took a road trip down to the coast. Leaving on Friday, our 1st overnight stop was in Harrismith. The next day we drove down to the Midland Meander where we stayed for 2 nights, and then on to Umhlanga for 4 nights. From there we started back home via Clarens where we stayed for 2 nights. It was a fantastic trip through a very beautiful part of our country.

Day 1 - Harrismith

And off we go on our roadtrip.

Not much happened on the 1st day, just the start of the road trip to with an overnight stay in Harrismith. Stayed at a lovely place called Africlassic Guest House.
