Unexpected Trip

I wrote this short story after getting caught up in a conversation (assisted by a glass of wine) at Gino’s. I was “piemped” by Matt Kruger and hence at Gerrit Rautenbach’s insistence, I wrote and entered the darned thing for the travel writing competition. Never expected it to get anywhere, but lo and behold, there it is, on the Litnet website. Considering that I find writing in Afrikaans a bit more daunting than writing in English, I’m quite chuffed with myself.

So, first is the link to the competition, and then the link to my story. Hope you enjoy it. In fact, send me some topics, and maybe I’ll write some more. In English even. It’s becoming quite a bit of fun!
