Hopefully we'll be back to exploring London's magical streets soon! South Africa is currently on the UK's Red List, which means only British nationals are allowed to travel from South Africa to the UK and then they have to complete 10 days quarantine in a hotel. There are no direct flights connecting South Africa to the UK currently.

The Inflight Sales Person's 2013 Airline of the Year Award has gone to Virgin Atlantic.

The Purple shall rule! "Algoa Bay must be paved with lost cargoes, everything from steel rails and other 'Glasgow jewellery' to slabs of marble and galvanised sheets". Hundreds of anchors have rested in the mud for centuries. Thousands of fathoms of valuable anchor chain have been abandoned there, enough to hold the fleets of the world. When bales and cases dropped from the slings the Customs men known as 'tide waiters' recovered some of the flotsam on North End beach; but Algoa Bay has swalled greedily fortunes in heavy freight that should have gone to the shore in lighters. Those who know only the modern all-weather harbour can have little idea of past hardships and disasters. Again and again the builders of walls and breakwaters were defeated by the violence of the sea & Port Elizabeth had to wait more than a century for the secure basin of today." Laurie Green in Harbours of Memory.
