Paris to Gordons Bay – September 15

Dave and I had champagne as an apĂ©ritif 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.

Cape Town to Paris – September 3

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.
