The ride to Bergville is quite long! They told us it would only be about three hours and it is but yeah the thrills of travelling by taxi is actually another story.
The taxi is not so bad, it is just the taxi driver is really speeding. Do not worry it is the kind of speeding that gets you upset and nauseous. Maybe it is because I have my music with me. I am travelling with my sister for the time being and hopefully next year we will be adding a new member to our duo group and become threesome.
The back seat was apparently occupied by a Pakistanis man who kept wanting to get our attention. I must say it was irritating at first but soon we loved everything. He just wanted to make some small talk.
Welcomes were directed at us as the pioneering couple we were staying with toured around us the small town of Bergville. There isn't much. But I could feel the pressure of seeing the mountains and hiking in the mountains.
The ride back home was interesting. Everything we saw on either side were pure mountains and the dreamy destinations where mountain bikers indulge themselves in.
I told myself I would experience that as we took in the small two room house next to the Kingdom Hall which we will be attending. Our room was just spacious and we stole many kisses and happiness while we started packing in the wardrobes.
The morning rush was exhilarating. There is something about waking up in between mountains. Today we are going to be doing some preaching work as auxiliary pioneers in the small town of Bergville.
It is the day time and I could properly see everything around me. The town is not really a tourist attractions place bur it is a place well known shops like JET, PEP, Edgars, Mr Price and small clothing boutique stores crowd the place.
Doing preaching work here was actually very different from the Metropolitan of Durban. One thing is, you could buy ice cream. That is another thing! Bergville is superb hot! I am starting to develop a headache.
A trip down to the dam where they have started building anther Kingdom hall was something like heaven. We took pictures there
It is the third day and of course you know what is Sunday. What is happening on Sunday? First of all on Sunday we go to the meetings and there we learn so much about Jehovah. There was so much love from our brothers and sisters..Luckily the kingdom hall wasn't too far from us. Literally it was all about a walking distance and you couldn't do much but allow it to happen. We were not too early as I had expected to be.
I guess we took the advantage of a few walking distance.
The meeting went very well.I loved everything. It is a small congregation but I loved it. Everything is closer as ever. After the meetings we took very good pictures.
We made friends with two amazing friends. Their names are Sne and Mbali. It is so nice to make friends with people who love Jehovah just as much as I did.
So that afternoon we were at home. Staying at home in Bergville was one of the best things you could ever ask for. I loved everything. The sun was so hot, it earned credit to a real travel destination.
Monday morning was hectic because we woke up pretty early. By the time six arrived we were running for the hills. I am just joking. We were just taking a jog in the morning. I could feel my legs throbbing as I ran. When it was a pretty sight when we arrived in the playground where we were going to do some exercise
So the during the day we decided to actually go to town where we would be able to do some shopping. I wasn't expecting too much. I have learned in the solid space of travel not everything will go as planned but you need to cherish every moment.
So we instead we went to shopping in the afternoon. It was a huge relief for such instances.We got to see almost all of Bergville even in the heat it was a trip.
Bergville is a small town. But of course I never noticed that. As twins a lot of people were quite fascinated. But by the last day, we had finished all of our good times and now it was time to head back home.
