We all have these photos … throwback photos!
It’s described as ‘nostalgia-inducing pictures … from a different era of your life”.
Every Thursday we will throw a photo of ‘way back when’ on our blog. Why on a Thursday? Because it’s just a day away from the weekend … and we love weekends!
You are welcome to join in or just enjoy the photo (#TB Thursday).
The Orange River forms the border between South Africa and the south of Namibia
In 2017 we took a quick trip for a long weekend close to Vioolsdrift which is situated on the border of South Africa and Namibia. And, may I add, this ‘quick’ trip meant we had to travel from Cape Town to Vioolsdrift and back to Cape Town in just 4 days – a total distance of 1360km (845 miles) – which we have done by car (not plane)!
We booked in at a lovely eco-camp on the banks of the Orange River, namely The Growcery. One morning we hiked to a high spot to have a look at the Orange River. This is the longest river in South Africa with a total length of 2400km (1491 miles). From this point, it’s only about 100km (62 miles) downriver before it flows into the Atlantic Ocean at Alexander Bay.
