Buya Ikhaya (Come Home)

Charlie and Rensche are coming home by riding motorbikes from London to Cape Town.

We hope that our stories from the road will motivate you to give a donation to our chosen charity Beautifulgate who are a Christian organisation helping Aids orphans in Southern Africa. Please follow the link in the column on the right.

We Made it!!!

Just a quick update to tell you all that we made it to Cape Point on 16 March 2008!!! (Almost 7 months to the day after leaving London)

Sorry for the delay in updating our blog but we've tried to do it via email (didn't work) and the cost of internet cafe's in SA are high! So hopefully we will be buying our own laptop in the next 2 weeks and fill in all the blanks. We made it to Cape Agulhas on 19 March a pick-up which we bought in Cape Town on the 17 March. The bikes are loaded in the back of our bakkie (pick-up) now and we are making our way to PE, via the Klein Karoo National Kunsfees (National Afrikaans Art Festival), where we will settle within a month or so. Hopefully. You will be happy to know that Rensche's bike is still ticking away happily but we decided on the bakkie not to push our luck and to avoid the SA drivers... And they laugh at us in all our gear! Lunatics.

Thank you for all your support and enquiries. We really appreciate it and hope you will return to our blog once it has been updated and beautified!!
