+ Travel in a world of adventures
Read my full day to day blog of my first big overseas solo trip.
Day 17 : 23rd Dec 2015. 7 am is now an early start for me, my body has fallen into holiday mode. My grandpa and I head out for his regular morning walk of around 2-3 km and he is now 92 years of age. These days he doesn’t go for a run - he does exercises at home. He is one fit grandpa, I swear he is more fit than me, he only recently stopped working and stopped running in the morning only a couple of years ago. It goes to show that if you keep yourself well, fit, busy and moving then it is possible to live comfortably for many years. I hope I get his good genes. We came back to their cottage had his famous porridge which is now labelled "grandpa’s porridge".
Robbie then arrives to take me back to hers for a swim. In the afternoon my uncle and aunty and I take a walk on the beach with their dog max, who they have adopted from his previous owner. The beach is so flat and the tide is high. Returning back to have Robs other grandparents arrive to stay for a few days from Port Elisabeth for Christmas. Debbie cooks an amazing dinner and our bellys are “prop” full. A few rounds of table tennis are played between me and Robs before watching some TV before bed.
