The house was finally packed up, we loaded (rather, overloaded) the car a couple of days ago and drove the 1400 kilometers from Johannesburg to Cape Town. It was mainly a night drive, we encountered a HUGE number of cargo trucks along the way, the usual handful of idiot drivers endangering everybody on the road and two really dangerous overtaking situations. Both occasions involved heavy cargo trucks passing each other, occupying the entire road and refusing to budge - blinded with lights and traveling at speed, we had to swerve to the very edge of the road to avoid head on collisions.
After a few hours of sleep over, a couple of stops along the way - we finally arrived safe and sound in Cape Town earlier this morning. We still need to unpack everything but we are now on Revelations as we should be. It has been a long process to get to this point - this day certainly marks a new beginning in our quest to sail around the world!
