Karoo - Day3 Leg9 - Fauresmith Pub lunch

After looking around town for a bit we needed something to eat as it was lunchtime. We found the Phoenix Pub and Grill where we got a fantastic meal and a beer, plus some great company. Some of the locals and not so local farmers we also in for lunch and we talked about our journey and the old boys we were going up to Bloemfontein for, they too had been at our old opposition school so could relate. We ended up being invited to a farm in another town at this chaps place for another beer on the way when we past them heading home. We left there with a feeling of such great hospitality and friendliness, something one misses when living in the big cities.  

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
