I’m a full time student / part time employee at this awesome place called The Backpack and Africa Travel Centre. Since I had July holidays coming up, I decide to take those weeks and travel the East Coast – going up to the Transkei and gradually making my way back down to Cape Town.
I was fortunate to have Baz Bus sponsor me with a 3 week travel pass – to use and miss use as much as possible! Therefore getting to know their traveling service a little better. I started my trip on the 7th and I am currently 8 days in.
My first stop was Wilderness where I stayed at The Beach House (regrettably I never had the chanced to sample their famous, much talked about pizzas).
Day number two I decided to go visit Albergo Backpackers in Plettenberg Bay. I’ve stayed at Albergos a couple of times before (thanks to a friend who shared her ‘happy place’ with me 4years ago). Since then we always try to visit when in the area and it never dissapoints!
Plett was also where my friend, Lize, joined in. I love traveling alone, but company makes the trek a little sweeter sometimes. Port Elizabeth came after Plett. We stayed the night @ Lungile Backpackers and was up bright and early the next day, finally on our way to the Transkei. Hoorah!
So that’s where we are now. We are staying at The Coffee Shack, a place that helps us fill our days with surfing, cliff jumping, cave -ing, hiking, volleyball – ing, to name but a few! Friend number 3, Eleni (who works with me at The Backpack), is joining us tonight. Fantastic timing, since we’re kicking the weekend off with a full moon beach party.
