Durban Adventure with my Bestie

These photographs were taken in Durban, South Africa on 23 and 24 May 2013. My Bestie and I celebrated the 21st birthday of our friendship with an awesome vacation!

We stayed at ATKV Natalia, where we had access to a private beach. But we didn’t spend too much time on the beach, because we had a jam-packed schedule: uShaka Marine World, watching The Sharks rugby team play live in “the shark tank”… Having a (surprisingly expensive) rickshaw ride and drinking cocktails on the roof of a revolving restaurant.

In am entering Challenge YOUrself #80 . . . I’m On Vacation! with this layout.

I am also entering this layout into the Academy of Scrapbooking and Art’s August 2020 Challenge.

And I used this layout to solve Case File No. 327 on CSI (Color – Stories – Inspiration) with the red elements in my layout, especially the airplane die cut, the world map and the original plane tickets! The Case File reminds me of all the planning that went into our vacation.

The layout was based on this sketch by Michelle van Wyk – Sketch 13 of 2019 on the Facebook-group Scrap and Sell Across South Africa:

I actually kept the plane and rugby tickets (this was before my scrapbooking days). I was so glad that I could include them in the layout.

We has such a great time and it was such an awesome way to celebrate the milestone of our friendship turning 21. We are planning a trip to Mauritius in 2022, to celebrate the next milestone of a 30 year friendship!
