We arrived back on time to the UK to what looked like sunshine, but this soon turned to a day of rain. I am not sure we had missed cold rain at all, and am glad we had booked a driver to come and collect us.
We arrived back home to find my dad had repainted the downstairs and upstairs hall and kitchen, all of the doors, skirting boards and re-stained our wooden stairs banister. My parents had also put up welcome back banners and balloons.
The trip was excellent, and we plan not to make it an once in a lifetime experience by doing another trip in a few years if work OK it . I would suggest to anyone with the money that they do this sort of trip, and definitely before you retire as a few of the places we went, we felt would not have been possible without good health and reasonable fitness i.e. Table Mountain, Kings Canyon.
For those that are interested in doing this sort of trip, we plan to put up a rough breakdown of the costs.
