SA, 20.-29.12, ideas for Christmas and travels or CS-meetups in general...?

My name is Daniela. I will start volunteering in Africa in January, for a year. Before that, a friend of mine, Christina, and I will travel within South Africa from 20.12 - 29.12.

As we both would love to be with our family for Christmas but cant, we are very happy for any hint of what might be nice to do for this holiday. A hint where we could sit down in Durban to see e.g. a Christmas tree, or a nice restaurant or beach, park or ,... any idea is welcome...

We will arrive in Joburg on the 20th but are free to travel anywhere! My friend would like to go to Durban but actually, if there would be another good idea, we are flexible. If, you are keen to do sth. together, also if you could offer a couch for that time around Christmas we would be very happy. WE would love to exchange some stories, experiences and have a good time together.

Hi Daniela,

I am unfortunately away for most of December but will be back by 3 January.

All sorts of planned adventures coming up in the new year so lets talk then!

We have many restaurants, what type of food do you usually like? I'm not actually sure where you will see a Christmas tree other than in our big shopping mall. Remember to book in advance.

We have a nice Botanical Gardens area where you can take picnic food and goodies and if you make an event other couch surfers might join. I also think that some people could have spaces open in their homes for Christmas.

Beaches are a no-go area on Christmas day. It gets full of locals and turns into pandemonium.

We have a nice place called Camelot, where you dress up in medieval clothes and have a 3-course "feast" on Christmas day. The valley of a thousand hills is also close to it. I'm not sure about the details, but you can e-mail them or look it up: http://www.greensleeves.co.za/durban/home.html.
