So after paying through the nose for a little drive around that we could have done ourselves, it was time. Now neither or us have driven anything like this before, so we went for a little practice run down our quiet waterfront road. Feeling more and more confident, we decided to go up the mountain. Grabbing a handy pre-measured litre of gasoline, we were off!
Jungle sounds all around and baboons running across the road, this was definitely about the journey, not the destination. I could really care less about the old town at the top (which was another reason why I wouldn't book it as a tour). But just to be outside in the environment with a 360 degree view in all directions was fabulous. As good as cycling, but without the pain!
Before we knew it, we had gone for over 4 hours with almost 100km behind us.
