I met Alberto and Maria at the One and Only Hotel and after a short discussion we worked out a tourplan for the following two days. This fantastic couple were on honeymoon in South Africa and they were out to enjoy themselves while on tour - Believe me they did AND so did I. J
On Fish Hoek Beach where I introduced Alberto and Maria to a Dom Pedro in the Beach Cafe.

What an amazing journey it was to tour with Alberto and Maria. Alberto must be one of the brightest people I have ever toured with and his curiosity to learn more was intoxicating and addictive to me. I loved every minute of his company. Maria was full of fun and was happy to try all experiences. She gave me the impression she wanted to suck every possible little piece of activity out of life and in doing so she brought so much to our tour. All in all this was a fantastic journey where we certainly went clickety click (see Alberto's comments below). I truly was very sorry to see this sensational young couple part company with me because they certainly helped me make their tour come alive for me as well as themselves ensuring a long lasting memory of a fabulous experience for all.
VERY MUCH FOR ALL
MARIA AND ALBERTO
MAY YOU HAVE MANY, MANY HAPPY YEARS TOGETHER
