Twilight saga eat your heart out, Steven Spielberg eat your heart.  This is Team GGA 2012!

Following our previous blog we ended our 1st week in Afrika-ka-ka-ka-ka on a high, Colin and Lula being the ultimate duo in block enforcement.

We left our site 6 blocks high and our efforts are now starting to resemble a mansion.  We found out on Thursday that our 2 room house was actually going to be a 4 bedroomed house, consisting of a kitchen/diner, 2 bedrooms,  a spare room for the shepherd, chickens, puppies, cats and not to forget and a *F* veranda (NO JOKE) a *F* veranda!

After a week of hard graft we very much deserved a weekend away ... in Heather & Patrick’s ‘Ark’...The animals went in two by two...Kittens, Germans and the Brookfield crew...The weekend was finally here...

Battling through wind and rain we settled in for the road trip of our lives. Our departure from GGA was the first insight to what ‘excitement’ laid ahead of us... escorted by Heathers pack of barking dogs, and a slightly flustered Patrick we said a final prayer and off we went.

  ......................Twelve hours and 5 verses of songs later we arrived in St.Lucia. Craig, Heather’s conversationally challenged co-pilot will never be the same again, neither will be Angela’s face...
