Upon returning from my Cape Town trip, I joined my family on a week long vacation at Ngwenya Lodge on the Southern boundary of the Kruger National Park. I haven’t been on vacation with my family for a very long time. The last time I went away with them for longer than a day was when I came out to them at the age of 13 while away on vacation during the December holidays. We used to go on family vacations at least twice a year but as I got older we kind of drifted apart in various aspects and I stopped going away with them. Although I was somewhat frustrated at times, it was really nice to join them on family vacation again. And I am glad that I didn’t turn them down again for the gazillionth year in a row.
The vacation was extremely relaxing. The folks took part in many recreational activities including mini golf, table tennis, swimming etc. but I mainly stayed at the chalet where I sipped copious amounts of wine and stared at the beautiful view, deep in thought – only walking through the resort when I wanted to buy something or to see what my folks were up to. Only near the end of the vacation did I decide to join my family for recreational activities.
The funniest thing happened though; The first day I went to the resort shop, a flirty girl came up to me asking for my number or BBM Pin. I politely told her in the gayest voice possible that I can only give her my USA number and that I do not own a blackberry. The next day I decided to wear my pink “Faggot” shirt to show the girls that I am most definitely not interested in vagina. Then suddenly I get called to the entertainment kiosk and the guy hands be a note with the male symbol scribbled on it, together with “call me maybe” and a cellphone number. Out of curiosity I checked to see if the number had WhatsApp activated. It did, so I texted it. It turned out that some boy saw me at the pool area wearing my Faggot tee, thought it was cute, asked me a bunch of questions about being out of the closet and then wanted to hang out or swim together. I kept making excuses to not meet up with him because I just wanted to relax and enjoy my holiday in solitude (apart from family interaction). I also didn’t want to put myself in any sort of situation that could possibly tempt me to get naughty because I’m no longer single and just didn’t want to deal with all that.
I’ve had a really low self-esteem as of late so I thoroughly enjoyed the attention I was getting from both guys and girls at the resort. I honestly didn’t think that random people would be asking for my number or leaving me notes to call them. I was truly flattered. The funniest and most flattering part of all of this though was that the guy who left his number on a note thought that I was 18 years old. He was quite shocked when I told that I am, in fact, 25. Those flirting with me all looked older than me even though they were much younger. I really love the fact that random strangers always think I’m much younger. It’s fucking awesome!
Moving on; The entire vacation did not revolve around the resort. We did go on a day-trip safari into the Kruger National Park where we saw four of the big five. Unfortunately most of the animals were too far away for us to get good pictures but we did manage to snap a few beauties. Check out some of the resort and safari images in the gallery below…
Over-all it was a fun holiday and I’m glad that I agreed to go with the family. If I didn’t go on this holiday then I would’ve probably just been sitting at home on my computer playing online multiplayer games
and jizzing myself into a porn coma. I just hope that next time I’ll have a better camera and perhaps a smart-phone with a front facing camera so that I can take some pictures of myself, too. Oh and… A bigger mobile data bundle for le interwebz.
Thanks for taking the time to read about my vacation. In all honesty, there’s so much more that happened but I don’t want this post to turn into a novel so I’ve only included key parts. I should really get into the habit of posting daily, especially when I am away doing fun things. That way I’ll be able to share more with you and not forget anything. I’ll work on that.
What did you get up to for the holidays?
