ohuyymjbpykug2mo
east head cafe in Knysna is worth a visit, if only for the views on the drive. make sure you follow the scenic view signs up the hill.
bogfmhbsg2mo
gxeniwbsypcgbz thank you very much! weโ€™re just planing the trip. so excited!
kxagbwscqincl2mo
i spent 2.5 months last winter driving around south africa. it was great!
zgyidkbailtnw2mo
no. i still had stuff i wanted to see. ๐Ÿ™‚ if you're wine people make sure to get up and do the wine tram.
vcjuybcxi2mo
we are more looking into safari and exploring beautiful places, letโ€™s see what south africa has to offer.
yfmrujdnsjydn2mo
well there are plenty of beautiful places
dunoqpyollcru2mo
you could pop up to addo
qrvcggvhdbemw2mo
i think the best safari stuff is more over by joburg, but addo is nice and you can see a variety of creatures there.
hlfincgmh2mo
thanks, weโ€™ll check it out!
what do you reco for accommodation? airbnb?
lksiptdurrftv2mo
i don't do airbnb for less than a week. too much wasted time with the check in/out bullshit and when you add their service fees + cleaning fees, it's not worth it IMO.
brxycsmzofbqx2mo
so i would hotel.
uytusocjc2mo
okei, sounds reasonable
eobdptbxxiywyig2mo
Highly recommended. Main places to stop along the way include Knysna, Plettenburg Bay, Jeffrey's Bay. I'd also recommend the Knysna elephant sanctuary, the raptor rehabilitation center, the wild cat sanctuary and the reptile park. All of these attractions are near Knysna and Plett.

I'm originally from South Africa so feel free to ask me anything you'd like.

I was born and raised in Port Elizabeth which is also on the garden route.
hpjcttfuc2mo
dxkifilruurmahbw wow, thank you very much for your message! really appreciate it. Yes, we will plan our trip this week and we might get back to you with some questions! ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks
npsbeynmd2mo
I have arrived!
kamgqpkns2mo
In Cape Town
bybqterzyhvwoqm2mo
My pleasure. If you do decide to visit PE then I can connect you with someone that can take you around and show you the best the city has to offer.
zsbarccsiorzyaf2mo
PE = Port Elizabeth
gvchodqdu2mo
fzkomjehuv sorry if confused but ZA plug isn't at all EU right?
qwmxkkwdb2mo
No not at all.
tgzsrvcqr2mo
So that's why EU adaptor doesn't go in
iiajppdne2mo
Diff plug
odopgphjw2mo
Itโ€™s the 3 pronged one. I was under the impression possibly my type G would be fine but nah
depeiyxtl2mo
Yeah looks similar but diff i think
qcvhlkrpd2mo
Well whatโ€™s that adaptor then that goes SA -> EU :P. Iโ€™m sure that _exists_, but itโ€™s just not what was set up here and confused me heh
ezisfasfx2mo
Ooohh
swpmqynlz2mo
I brought a type G and a Euro hoping at least one would get me by most of the time :P fully expecting I would probably need to buy a SA adaptor at some point any way. Was just hoping Iโ€™d at least be able to give my laptop a charge right away in the Airbnb before I had to go shopping heh
skggvwkyi2mo
A hotel might have the universal outlet
cdqnynwjw2mo
Anyway rekt
wgbldzgwp2mo
Lightly dusted ๐Ÿ˜ข
zohynwjdn2mo
So yea if youโ€™re coming in from EU or UK just grab an adaptor straight away at the airport.
kzqjyyuafimsi2mo
i'm surprised that the one on the right won't work. i had zero issues with any that shape during my trip. the one on the left needs a type M i think. but the one on the right looks very like the one i purchased when I was there. all of my EU plugs worked just fine with it.
zcjtbrukdelda2mo
i did find that some of the adapters that were provided sucked and maybe only 1 of the many options worked. did you unplug what's in there and try your plug in the one that's being used? and yeah UK plugs aren't supported at all.
lhfbgkrzffjib2mo
the plug you're seeing is a type c. it's the same as EU plugs. it's just shitty and broken. ๐Ÿ™‚
zcizztwkb2mo
rpvuseqlvgxxsgvm actually we plan to do that! that would be great. Iโ€™ll get back to you as soon as we know when we will be there and Iโ€™ll write you again. Thanks man, really appreciate it!
qgxqyonsimj2mo
This is why I like US plugs when they have the holes drilled in the prongs. Worst case, you just break the clips off of a couple pens and start forcing things into the outlet.
illlkdwxfpa2mo
(Not that I would reccomend that)
pgaejllrhxtnt2mo
yeah.... that seems like a bad idea
slvufhakv2mo
Yea I tried taking the one plug out and replace it with my euro appliance. No dice!
aihdnslet2mo
Yea removing the ground sounds like it works great until thereโ€™s a power surge and a fire breaks out or something (no idea if that can be the end result, but thatโ€™s what I envision the ground is good for...)
yprkvzwtywv2mo
Everything I have these days is ungrounded. Actually kinda nice.
qhfdcwdecoiwu2mo
weird. but half the stuff i found already at places was jacked, so getting your own is the best bet.
ugczhfonu2mo
Got some free time morning/early afternoon Sunday Feb 2 in Cape Town and was thinking of hiking all or part of lions head. Anyone up for it?
bpygktvjwcqlq2mo
Will be arriving Cape Town Monday.. planning to do table mtn all day hike later in the week
hpteprsbhbmnx2mo
lzqyxnykffbljn finally made it to SA :) and back on this slack!
rkzvsxexd2mo
Iโ€™ll be leaving on Monday early morning :(
thplgxqterxqp2mo
lpcvqkmzxaqvcw have fun!
qwpoutsznplb2mo
if anyone is in joburg, i'm here in Sandton until Saturday. Let's party! (back to CPT after that)
fkuuqilk2mo
tmhslugshjsef I stay in Sandton, but I'm headed to Australia today.
httndzwnitcg2mo
Bummer! Hanging out in Soweto atm
euhhqvzth2mo
hei guys, Iโ€™m here in Capetown for a week now and fell in love with it!
What are the real costs per month if you want to live here? I know on nomadlist there is a monthly costs overview, but I donโ€™t want an average, I want to know the real costs of living and working here ๐Ÿ˜„ I know it depends also on how you live, so letโ€™s say an appartment with 2 bedrooms in green point or sea point, gym membership, food (at home and going out), etcโ€ฆ :slightly_smiling_face:

is there somebody in this group who lives here and has some real insights about it, thanks ๐Ÿ˜„
uvssheauhgh2mo
Who's going to the street art festival this weekend? ipafest.co.za/|http://ipafest.co.za/
idgzqlcs1mo
Anyone got a cure for the jet lag ?
gpkpahlaz1mo
zpiqpbbja sleep!
heyvpnqsu1mo
Ambien. Or just stay up a whole night/day ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
ulrovjice1mo
Sleep whenever you want to sleep
gejvrzvua1mo
Stop trying to fit into a specific sleep cycle
aalerfgzl1mo
Then slowly your body moves back to your normal cycle
spmwbglbs1mo
Benefit of remote async work imho
ieuwsduub1mo
is anyone interested in sharing a house / apartment in cape town or somewhere along the garden route eg plett during march ?
wmrvehsaiwf1mo
Iโ€™ve been able to prevent jet leg almost entirely a few times by staying extremely hydrated and sleeping an extra hour for a few nights before and after traveling. As part of that, on the day Iโ€™m flying, I mostly avoid things that affect hydration, like coffee and alcohol. Iโ€™ve tried this when crossing 3 time zones as well as 17 time zonesโ€ฆ fhlsnsrxx

Hello, I will be in Cape Town the first of April for 2 months, someone has any suggestions/tips for the accommodation?
jrvzkegvvstw28d
My favorite area to stay in is Sea Point
ofvskuuwjetvxk28d
I was looking into that thanks for the advice, I'm thinking maybe to take this Hostel MoTown by Mojo, what do you think?
lmgfoteykv12d
Hi
fpjsyygjorq10d
Are flights still leaving Johannesburg? (Not for me!)
tfrmgogmmqloz10d
to where and connecting where. that's the important question.
jotwvchmqaytk10d
i haven't heard about joburg closing but many connecting airports are.
qfedowuty10d
Today I know of someone that was flying Nairobi -> Joburg and the flight cancelled due to new restrictions
bcltdsmio10d
She was Australian, but it was a domestic flight
igxvkedwh10d
Sorry โ€” not domestic :persevere:. But not from a heavy hit covid country
npwtabecced10d
Joburg -> Accra -> Washington DC
pontrcnytvdbo10d
DC will be super strict. Is she an american citizen? haven't heard anything about Ghana
abivvdpqosiew10d
or permanent resident
drivuewkdod10d
if accra gets shut down, the JNB->GRU route is still running, and i haven't heard issues of people getting from GRU into the US
nhrlmjkkray10d
people were runnign from chile to MVD & GRU in order to catch flights home
netoqbjlpwd10d
3 US citizens. I'm really hoping the flights get canceled and they stay put but travelers gonna travel SMH
lrrdfxhpnqt10d
from facebook posts i'm seeing, i'd guess ghana may be more strict than either brazil or the US
hbojgpzhdll10d
IIRC the JNB->ACC-JFK can also just refuel in ACC and continue on if needed since it's a single flight with stopover
wgioorlpfbx10d
or at least used to be that way
nvbrgcpxswn10d
Yes that's what I was told, that it wasn't an actual airport stop
jmmmidcnofu10d
yeah, that'll still probably fly
vaslmodhpke10d
it's the one good route for almost the entire southern portion of the content, so they'll probably keep it running as long as they possibly can and consolidate other flights to it
wmjcgdiabkn9d
Has anyone heard of swine flu outbreaks in SA or Mozambique? My sister is insisting her whole family has that and not coronavirus as there is still not a single case of covid in Moz. She says h1n1 is exploding around her tho
zuakzlqyi9d
Those are all great examples of viruses not to bring into your home
lsmjwdsrn9d
A good question to ask is if there has been a single test of covid in Moz
nahqphigaop9d
I strongly doubt it. Really wish they could tested before they fly out. Thankfully I've found a separate place to stay for the first 2 weeks while they're here
wuasctgeaeb9d
Hope the kids don't kill Grandma and Grandpa....
zdhabxnijvmzk9d
regardless of what they have they should stay away from people. def not be traveling.
uhhghbswavv9d
SERIOUSLY. I have done a lot of thinking, though, and I don't think she is being selfish and traveling for the sake of traveling even though that is her reason. I think she is actually pretty scared for the kids and doesn't want them to be stuck in Mozambique if anything got bad. But she won't say because she can never admit that kind of thing
krfuxmgyhpsdn9d
yeah, that's different.
okfgfhysgsbfk9d
if the choice is SA or Mozambique, i'd head to SA too
wdeteutuvpa9d
To give some interesting context, no one gives a shit right now like other countries are freaking out. Her oldest is in kindergarten and the schools are all still open (!!!!)
lkiojgdrutzmd9d
but then i'd rent an apartment and not see anyone.
qefbpcgsbrm9d
Not get on a plane and fly to DC?!
xsljspkufojzp9d
i passed on that option and chose to lock myself into germany instead. ๐Ÿ˜„
hcpnlvncujg9d
I think I might be the most extroverted person in this entire community. I would actually rather get a lethal case of covid19 than spend even 10 days alone in a hotel room
tviegmrbejopt9d
yeah, being an introvert definitely helps right now.
mcagdejd4d
Right now I'm either relaxing in the balcony or getting lost in a game to prevent the Cabin fever...when I'm not working that is.
venzamdh4d
Between spotify, netflix, discord, and gaming the entertainment aspect is sorted.
