We were supposed to fetch The Person today but he’s had to extend his stay so instead of him coming home we’re going to him! Travelling with a toddler isn’t cheap and he pays the same amount as an adult if we fly so we’re off to Pretoria tomorrow – on the train! We’ll take a bus in to town and then catch a ride, train leaves at 10am which means we have to wake up extra early as we have to be there by 9am. And you know it takes a good long time to get into town if you factor in the waiting for the bus and walking with a 5 year old etc.
It’s a 26 and a half hour trip to Johannesburg and then the Gautrain into the capitol so we’ve got snacks packed along with lego, movies, colouring in books and an assortment of hot wheels. I think we’re just about ready! Looking forward to it though, we get to see the country from a whole new perspective and you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be taking a whole bunch of photos as we go and there will be a “travelling on the train with a 5 year old” blogpost after all of this. Or maybe a “surviving 26 hours with a toddler in a confined space” blogpost… we’ll see.
Yay for spontaneous travelling and double yay for getting to see my person!
