Our journey to the 2011 Rocking the Daisies festival began with a two hour flight from uShaka International into Cape Town with a further one hour drive to Carling and as you can see we were kept entertained with never a dull moment aboard the trip. Truth be told Chia won that round with an MMS pic of said gesture sent to Shaun’s mobile…
