Rob and I were on own for the first time in many years, after living with Robs parents who so kindly put us up to help save for this trip of a lifetime. We were both feeling excited and nervous to see how we would cope, just the two of us. We decided it would be the...

By the time we arrived in Livingstone it was clear from other overland travelers we met that we needed to step up our game. We needed to do some education, networking, training and self promotion to get our start up off the ground. Our first night in Livingstone was...
