Travel Theme: Curves

Another inspiring theme from Ailsa, wheresmybackpack . So many things come to mind when talking about curves, but we’ll keep it clean.  Here is my contribution:

SA Roads

One can marvel at the country’s landscape by driving on these long, curvy and winding roads

Curvy roads and hiking trails

I love hiking near the Drakensberg mountains, the terrain challenges you to the core. When I’m battling on the hikes, I always say, that’s it I quit but after a day or two I’m ready to go back.

Are we there yet?

One certainly needs a break after climbing these curves

Are you afraid of the dark? Don’t worry just follow the lit-curved path and be alert at all times…

In Sterkfontein Caves discover early life forms, fossils, etc., by braving this path either up, down or sideways. This is not for the faint-hearted, in fact if you are claustrophobic you are advised not to embark on this journey. Not only is it curvy down there, but it’s also got some really tight spots to navigate.  

Underground boating

Cradle of Human Kind is one of the world‘s heritage sites and about an hour’s drive from Johannesburg. A place to impress the outoftown visitors. There’s so much to see and take in here and also an opportunity to conquer some fears – the dark, underground, water and swaying means of transport navigating the curves to the exit…Phew!

    Great photos. i remember years ago we went to the Sterkfontein caves, and Hubby’s aging and rather large aunt from England, suffered a panic attack. We literally had to carry her out, all covered in mud. It wasn’t funny at the time, but I can laugh thinking about it now. 🙂

      Oh dear! that must have been frightening to suffer a panic underneath in those caves. Gosh! the carrying part up those stairs, that must have been hard work. At least you can laugh about it now:-)

    These images bring back lots of good memories for me! I can understand about wanting to quit the hiking after a day or so!
