Leaving Cape Town was incredibly sad but on we went to visit my grandparents in Aberdeen. We rented a car so we even got the chance to travel along the beautiful garden route, then up the N9 through Oudtshoorn and onto Aberdeen and the beautiful Karoo. It was amazing spending time with my grandparents, we arrived in the evening so spent the first night just chatting and settling in. The next day we went to visit my great-aunt who made us a very authentic farm lunch followed by a visit to the old dam that they were re-concreting. It was so great to see her again and really lovely going for a walk around her veld.
The next day was spent wandering around the gorgeous town of Graff-Reinett, it was a pity it was raining and a bit miserable , but it was lovely to see the old buildings and especially a town so rich in history. It was also lovely to spend the next day with my uncle on our old family farm. It was amazing spending time with my grandparents, even teaching granny how to use the internet!
