Washing off feet at a petrol station on our way back home to Cape Town.

James and Jennie were an absolute delight to take around Cape Town and its surrounds over a three day period. They were very easy going and brought lots to the table with their own ideas (especially James's photography) which made for very interesting discussion while travelling.  To see more of James great photos please click here. Touring was a fun event with this couple as they were out to enjoy themselves while we were travelling.  For me the tour was an exciting one as I felt that while touring both Jennie and James were enjoying themselves and that to me was the ultimate experience.

Thanks for being great visitors Jennie and James
