Have been planning this trip for about a week back, since it’s election in Lesotho, where we and most of our friends work, the government have set Friday and Saturday as holiday so that locals can get enough time to go back to their homes for election.
As this was only a 3day-2night holiday we decided on Johannesburg, where it’s closer so won’t be as tired. It’s about a 4 hour drive one way from where we stay.
We stopped at Kroonstad, Free State for a light snack. Rested a little bit, let the kids stretch and adults had some coffee then we were back on the road
The other thing we had in mind for this trip was to visit one of our friends that came from Taiwan for a show in Johannesburg. He was very busy so we only had a couple of hours with him. Then after we drove him back to meet with his client
After dropping our friend, we went back to the hotel, Garden Court in Sandton City, very convenient for those who love to shop and eat as it is just an alley across from Sandton shopping and many restaurants. A highly recommended place for accommodation.
For dinner we walked across the alley to Sandton Square, to Big Mouth Sushi and Grill restaurant. Was recommended by friends who came with on this trip as the food was great and didn’t even need to drive to get there. WHAT’S A TRIP WITHOUT GOOD FOOD RIGHT??
Every had a great time at the restaurant, food was great in general and everybody was happy
After dinner, a few of our friends that stay in Johannesburg visited us at our hotel’s restaurant/bar. We were all catching up and had a great time and some drinks
And that is our first day in Johannesburg, was a great start to finish for the first day
