Dave and I had champagne as an apéritif and red wine with dinner. The chicken choice was really good. A cognac and sleeping pill to end and I got a fairly decent amount of sleep. I must remember to look for an eye mask that doesn’t have plastic buckles on the edge as they dig in to my face. I woke just before breakfast, which was average. Disembarking was a pleasure and we had time to relax in the lounge before our flight. This makes a change. We had an easy flight to Cape Town and now it’s the last leg of our journey, back to Gordons Bay! Another great holiday comes to an end.
What a pleasure the start of this trip was. Left Cape Town at 14:10 and got to Johannesburg at 16:00. Went to the Air France desk to get our boarding passes. Our luggage was checked through from Cape Town to Edinburgh. Border control was a breeze and we sat in the lounge relaxing until it was time to board. Now on the flight to Paris! A glass of champagne to kick off the flight and then curried fish for dinner. We had a nice meal, some wine and then tea for me with my sleeping tablet. Which did not work straight away. Had a restless sleep which for the first time was not comfortable due to my knee.
