I thought 1 Jan flights were meant to be expensive, so I'm pleasantly surprised that 1time was offering a R369 flight from Johannesburg to Durban (check their prices at 1time, remember to cross-check prices using the flight price comparison tool).

Review of a Kulula flight from Cape Town to Johannesburg

We caught a Kulula flight from Cape Town to Johannesburg, and it was good to see that their humour hasn't gone stale. We had a lot of laughs reading their new in-flight magazine - Khuluma - with its lunatic editor, John Vlismas. Also our first time at Cape Town International Airport (here's a photo of the beautiful new departures terminal).

Lynn Lagore goes home

After months of travel Lynn Lagore hopped into a light aircraft and flew from the Kruger to Vilanculos (Mozambique) to clear customs, and then onwards to Chimoio (where she lives an interesting missionary life serving the rural people of Mozambique). Here's the results of an experiment of closing a cooldrink bottle at 9000 feet - this is what it looked like when they got back to the ground:
