Hi ya everybody!
Sorry we haven't 'blogged' for a few days but it's been a bit eventful! We travelled from Bushlands to Sodwana Bay ( a 5* PADI rated resort) with the intention of Laura getting her Open Water diver certificate but on the 2nd day she managed to lift an oxygen tank and put her back out so she had to put her feet up for a few days.
Anyway, they have given us a referral so hopefully she should be able to complete it when we get down to P.E. We arrived today in St. Lucia (no, not in the Carribean) a smallish place just along the coast before you get to Durban and after 4 days in a wooded hut with only eachother and monkeys for company, we were quite relived to see civilization again.......although in comparison to Laura's moaning about back pain, the monkeys were quite good company!
Laura would like to publicly thank Sacha for the pills she gave her that have just about kept her (and me) sane for the last few days. Without them she would have been even more unbearable. Anyway, she is well on the road to recovery now and we are both happy to be in St Lucia. Better still, we have found somewhere with broadband internet...yes, BROADBAND internet so we're hoping that we can let you finally see some photos.
We have just booked a boat trip tomorrow to spot hippos and crocs too but we are only here for 2 days which is a bit of a shame really as it's a typical coastal town with loads to do and some lovely restaurants but we need to get the Baz Bus on Sunday to Durban.
Ok so we're gonna try to upload some photos now. Thanks for the emails and messages that you're all sending and keep them coming! It's good to hear from you all (and it takes Laura's thoughts away from back pain for a while!)
Love JO and LAURA xxx
