Wüste, Staub und Diamanten

Regen prasselt auf unser Zelt, der elektrische Heizlüfter glüht und bläst kontinuierlich heiße Luft unter unseren Frühstückstisch. Wir schlürfen dampfenden Kaffee und beratschlagen uns, ob wir heute den Grenzübertritt nach Namibia wagen sollen. Es ist Freitag und wir...

Malawi 1

Malawi 1

Leaving the Zambian side of the border was incredibly easy, we were in and out in under 10 minutes.. The immigration and customs both knew what they were doing and pointed us to the Malawian customs. Again this was straight forward, and we managed a very jammy...

Onwards from here..

In my last blog I wrote we had a lot of decisions to make in the upcoming days.. Our plans have changed so many times already, countries we want to visit, time and the order we visit them due to costs and route restraints. Money is sadly also becoming a...

En weer naar Mozambique

Op de dag na onze aankomst in Lisse wordt mijn moeder vanuit het ziekenhuis overgebracht naar het hospice waar ze na drie weken op 84 jarige leeftijd rustig inslaapt. Een grote verandering in ons leven; onomkeerbaar, vreemd en onwennig. Maar toch stappen we morgen...

27 Dec 2014 I leave the Marangu lodge at 10:30, with the aim to get to Nairobi. The original plan is to take the road that goes around the Kilimanjaro and then go to the boarder post to Kenya. However I change the plan in the way. The Kilimanjaro isn’t visible...

TRIP 4 – Zanzibar

21 dec 2014 The day in Zanzibar starts late. I couldn’t sleep the last night and I ended up watching the last movie of Nightmares (Freddy) at two am… The result is that I woke up late and I was on the street at 11:00. The stone town is nice and there are...
