Killarney Motorbike Track Day in Cape Town

Finally! After all these years, I've ridden a race track on my weekly commute. The freedom to ride without worrying about busses, potholes or oil spills on the road. I think two things - I'm glad to have thoroughly enjoyed it slightly past the usual comfort zone and lived to tell the story, and also because it's pretty much as others say, you learn from it and come out a more knowledgable rider.

The groups are fast, medium and slow - all first timers go in the slow group (only one with lessons).

4x 20 minute track sessions. Between each session, there is an advanced driving school lesson.
Groups are paced at different times in 20 minute per hour intervals, so it's like clockwork.
Overtaking is restricted to straights and the outside of corners, so you can hug the inside in peace.

Look for, "Motorcycle Track School":

Franschhoek Wine Tram

As locals, it was lekker to experience the Wine Tram in Franschhoek on our minibreak. Along the way we visited Rickety Bridge, Moreson, Eikehof, Paserene and Le Lude the next day. We love Franschhoek, go there often and really enjoyed our first wine tram, bus and tractor rides.

Decided to venture far north this time to Scandinavia, we sailed from Stockholm, Sweden to Russia onboard Royal Caribbean's Serenade of the Seas. We spent two nights in port at St Petersburg before heading to Helsinki, Finland and then onto Tallinn, Estonia. The final stop was Visby, Gotland, whereafter we spent two nights in Stockholm. Days stretched to 11pm with sunlight, it was amazing.
