 This picture page picks up on Jay's third visit to South Africa... 
... when he actually moves there after quitting his job.

For Jay's Birthday Nicole planned a surprise trip to a favorite area of theirs, Hazyview Resort. They stayed at a Hotel called Hippo Hollow, where in January they saw a hippo cross in front of them while having dinner (on other side of the river).

On Sunday 12/16, Nicole woke Jay up at 5am and they headed out into the dark for Jay's surprise birthday present.  They stopped at a gorge where there was bungee jumping and a slide; Jay's heart went up to his throat.... Nicole laughed as this
just a false lead.

Her gift was a balloon experience ... except the clouds never lifted so the trip was postponed :(
