Now's when it gets interesting comparing SAA & Mango prices on the Cape Town to Durban route - as an SAA ticket basically gives you a Mango flights + meals and voyager miles (if you don't know what I'm talking about, then you may have missed the shock announcement that SAA Cape Town to Durban flights are being stopped from 1 Nov).

In South Africa for the World Cup

Nathan decided to ignore all the fear-mongering and go to South Africa to enjoy the Fifa World Cup:

  • "The people were extremely nice and we never felt threatened the entire time we were there."

  • "We were flying via Dubai and we were happy to see tons of Americans, Mexicans and South Americans, all dressed in their team’s gear, getting ready to board the flight."

  • "We got to Dubai after a 12 hour flight.  We flew Emirates and it was a pleasure.  It’s the best airline I’ve ever been on, with fairly large seats, personal LCD screens with 600 channels and front and bottom cameras so you can watch the scenery from the plane."

  • "The Dubai airport is massive.  We had a 6 hour layover and got to explore a huge area.  It’s really the crossroads of the world and it was fun to see people from every corner of the globe." 

  • "It was incredibly strange at first to drive a car on the other side of the road, but I got completely comfortable after two days.  The hardest part were the round-abouts and shifting with my left hand, although the South African drivers were more aggressive than drivers here." 

  • "Most of the English were really nice, until we scored our equalizer on a howler by Robert Green, then they started to get really angry and a guy in our row tried to fight an older American fan with a neck brace on."

  • "We drove through Golden Gate National Park and it was absolutely beautiful."

  • "On match day, we went to some bars and were completely surprised by how many Algerians there were.  They were everywhere and wanted pictures with us.  Most were really nice, but a few were a bit angry with Americans.  We had ANOTHER fair goal disallowed on a blown call and the atmosphere was incredible.  People stood the entire match singing, chanting and blowing their vuvuzelas.  We had chance after chance and finally put one home in the 91st minute to send us through.  I don’t remember the next 10 minutes because everyone was celebrating so hard.  Andy and I got on TV right after the match and everyone stayed in the stadium celebrating for the next 30 mins, then went outside to sing and dance some more.  Katie got a ride on a police horse in exchange for her American flag and the party went on most of the night. Those 4 hours and that one moment were incredible.  Those moments are what make soccer the best sport in the world and now clearly top the list of the best sporting events I’ve ever been to."

  • "We saw one of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen from the top of a mountain, overlooking the Cape."
