What excitement! My husband works in a neighbouring country and during our school holiday we had the chance to visit and see where he works. It is about 5 hours drive and the girls were so excited to use their passports (and to get it stamped).
I travelled alone with them - which was a challenge on its own, but I tried to plan the trip, snacks and activities carefully and we arrived without any problem, tears and frustration.
I made them each a "car-bag" to keep all their stuff in. I used an old shopping bag, cut and sewed it a bit smaller. It fits perfectly over the seat and it kept their stuff neat.
In Swaziland, we visited the Glass Factory. Please read more about it here. http://ngwenyaglass.co.sz It was fascinating and inspiring to see how everything used in the factory is either re-used and recycled.
The Ndwenya mine is an old iron mine near the city of Mbabane. An absolutely stunning view with the trees taking back their own territory.
It was a very special trip and quite close to home. We will definitely be back there soon.
