After visiting Robben Island yesterday, things got out of control on this trip in the BEST WAY EVER. If you follow my stream here, you’ll have an idea but I made a video so stay tuned. Today we left Cape Town and took the two hour flight to Durban courtesy of South African Airways, collected more Aeroplan points in the process and after some Bunny chow, made our way to the lovely Oyster Box Hotel…
The moment you arrive at this hotel you instantly know you’re somewhere special. This update is a great example of less is more. I won’t talk your ear off about a place I just arrived at, that would be asinine. I will however show you a series of photos which will let you make up your own mind. That said, am sure you will come to the same conclusions as yours truly. If you’re looking for a relaxing and luxurious place to call home while in Durban, you may wish to look into this fabulous venue.
That said, we here at iyashinoshigoto are verbose if nothing else so will add that they often have a world class curry buffet which brings people in from all over the area. Also their seafood is top notch. Enjoyed some delicious langoustines and clever conversation while listening to the waves crash against the coast in the background. This is one of those hotels on the planet where the moment you enter, it’s like you’re in a another world. One of the best kinds of escapism in my humble opinion, feel as though in the 1940’s with all the amenities of 2012. We’re here in Durban for another 3 days before this dream trip to South Africa will sadly conclude.
Tomorrow is the start of a new week and a most egregious video I have prepared should be done uploading.
