Making a start

A new chapter has started today. A chapter about writing about our traveling on a motorcycle.

Traveling started actually earlier this year. Janneke and myself did our first road trip to an event held at Koedoeskloof near Ladysmith. Jo Rust did a talk on her solo adventure about going around Africa on a motorcycle, the first lady in the world to achieve this feat. I wanted to attend because of the trip I want to do from Home to Amsterdam. A trip planned for 2018 but more on this later.

Anyhow, I got Janneke to join me. So, to get this blog started, here are some pics of the trip.

First break on top of Du Toitskloof pass, at the view point



















We had a good trip to our overnight stay. A nice self catering place just down the road from Koedoeskloof.

Hereby thus the first report entry endeth.
