Road Trip: Day One

Today we left Cape Town for Pietermaritzburg.

This was a sad moment for me as I said farewell to nine years of pastoring a local congregation and set off for a lecturing post in the Methodist Seminary.

And it was raining. Normally this would be fine. But today was different: I was riding my motorcycle. And the wind was blowing and rain was falling.

The other members of the expedition were dry. My wife Jenny, our three daughters and Jen Tyler all rode in the Toyota HiLux.

We agreed to ride together - which means me riding at a snail's pace behind the girls because the bakkie seldom gets over 100kmph. But this gives me plenty of time to think, and pray, and generally reflect on the time of transition in my life.

Tonight we are camping in Montague. Here is my BMW GS 1150, and the bakkie with two roof tents.
