A look back at Africa: South Africa

SA Flag

Now that we have been out of Africa for exactly one month we thought it would be a good exercise to reflect back on our time spent in the continent.

To make this simple, we have decided to do a series of blog posts in which we will both chose the three things we liked the most and the three things we liked the least about each country we visited.

We travelled through nine counties in Africa, but since we also spent only about eight hours in Zimbabwe, we won’t include it in this blog series. It obviously makes sense to do this in the order we visited each country, so the subject of our first post is South Africa.
