The next day dawned interesting. So Ron runs out of the room just before 8:00 am to see if Rovos rail is there on the platform, so I quickly followed him. I wasn’t too impressed since the train was late and I was kind of hungry, but it was so worth the wait.
I have seen Rovos Rail in pictures in magazines, but actually in real life. This train is amazing, straight from a by gone area.
The manager of the train said we could go into the dinning car and take some photos and then afterwards he took us to see a suite. Of course we couldn’t take photos since some one was staying in there. It is really worth the money to travel by this train and there are so many routes for example Cape Town to Cairo looks totally amazing.
After taking more photos we went off to breakfast and I must say there omelettes are delicious. Then once breakfast was finish, we went off to our room to pack up.
Any way we had to check out at 11:00 am and the train was leaving at 11:00 am. Deciding to go back to our childhood Kieron put a 5c coin on the railway track at the crossing. We packed the car and took last minute photos, which included my boyfriend walking across the railway line to take photos. This freaked me out a bit since walking across a railway line is so dangerous. Then we put the 5c coin on the track at the railway line crossing and just had to wait for the train to go. Just as there said that the train will leave at 11:00 am, it left at 11:00 am sharp. So now we have a disfigured 5c coin.
Then unfortunately we had to drive back to Cape Town, though we should have gone in the opposite direction!
We arrived back in Cape Town around 3:00 pm. I must admit that was one awesome adventure with one amazing boyfriend!:D
Matjiesfontein is a small historical town which development hasn’t touched. It is a town is a small town in the middle of no where were time has stood still. This town is definitely worth a visit, to stay or stop for a drink in a bar or a meal on the way to another destination.
Here is to another of many more adventures to come!!
