Happy New Year 2015 - Durban, South Africa

happy new year 2015 Well, I'm finally back in Durban. No drama, no lost luggage. A smiling David was waiting for me at the Arrivals Hall … a wonderful sight for my tired eyes. Hugs, kisses and gathering up of those heavy duffels already seems a blur. We boarded a shuttle for the marina and held hands on the 90-minute ride back. Nine of Cups was waiting to welcome me … yellow ribbons and all!

We've got lots of plans for the New Year including some inland travel in Africa over the next few weeks.

Our New Year's Eve celebration included a bottle of champers, a quiet dinner and the chance to catch up on three weeks apart. We raised a toast at midnight and sang away the old year and welcomed the new.

New Year's Day? We're lounging and relaxing. I'm overcoming jetlag and David, though chomping at the bit to install all those new parts I brought home, is happy to relax a bit, too.

The Nine of Cups' crew wishes you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015.
