Last post I promised that as soon as my exams were finished I would be back here with more posts about Joburg life. Well, life has had other plans and this Friday (after my exam), I will be on a plane to England. My grandfather, sadly passed away this Saturday, after a ten year battle with Parkinsons disease. So my mother and I are going over to stay in Lancaster with my grandmother and then I will be staying in England for a while longer visiting a friend. All of this has happened in a week and despite buying my ticket today I still can't quite believe that I am coming. So I hope that while I am there I hope to be able to blog and share some of my adventures in England. I am so excited to be going over despite the circumstances.
Reflecting during this chaotic time, I really would like to share the legacy of my grandparents through some of these pictures taken by my grandfather. He and his first wife, Renée, went travelling through Europe before my mother was born during 1959. Some of the photographs are from their European travels and others are from their voyage back to South Africa via cruise ship.

|The little girl is my mum! How sweet! |
Also seated with my grandmother are my great grandparents.
Lovely to know that their legacy continues in me.
