When reality hits... What's next?!?!

So it's been a while since my last blog post, and a lot has happened since our Otter 2018 adventure.

We've had two "Hiking for Beer Day hikes", one at Wolwespruit Trails park and another at Hennops hiking trail.
It's always awesome to meet new faces and see familiar ones again.

We also had to say goodbye to Rodger, one of the hikers on the Otter, enjoy Netherlands my friend, enjoy walking the mountain free paths that side, until we meet again..

More than 2 months ago we finished a life changing experience, and it didn't take long for reality to set in, it was back to norm, the rat race "needed" me.
But it's difficult to forget that freedom one had. 5 Day's with no Cellphone signal, no stress, no fuss.

I've been asked on numerous occasions over the last 2 months,
"What is next?"

The obvious one comes up all the time,
"When are you doing Kilimanjaro?"

Now don't get me wrong, that adventure is definitely on my personal bucket list, but I was thinking closer to home, certainly South Africa has more than enough top class hikes to do first.

The hikes that are high up on my list is Fanie Botha, in the Lowveld, and Cathedral peak, in the Drakensberg area.

Which others would you recommend?
Perhaps Tsitsikama trail? Or even Amatolo trail? Where do you start?

Whatever your choice, be it a day hike, or a serious multi-day expedition, one needs to target these hikes, because memories are made out there.

Please share your bucket list with us, we might just plan a trip there soon...
