Travels to Cape Town...

The three of us flew from Indianapolis to Atlanta, Atlanta to Johannesburg, (aircraft that flew us that leg - Boeing 777-200LR - pictured) and then Johannesburg to Cape Town. It worked out cheaper to buy two separate tickets - the Indianapolis to Johannesburg flights with Delta, and then the Johannesburg to Cape Town flight with Kulula.com, a budget South African airline. Both Delta and Kulula impressed us with how accommodating they were to this little family of three.

We departed Indianapolis on Tuesday, 7th March, at 14h30 local time and arrived in Cape Town on Wednesday evening, 8th March, at around 21h30 local time. (GMT +2.) Here we are at Indianapolis prior to boarding our first flight. All flights went well and Riaan was an absolute champion. We seriously could not have asked for a better little travelling baby!

My dad met us at the airport and drove us home to our family home in Cape Town. Riaan loved meeting his grandparents and really acted as if he'd known them all his life. This photo was taken late at night on the night we arrived in Cape Town. He wasn't the least bit shy and fitted right in to life in Cape Town, South Africa!
