Some Thoughts As We Head Home

It appears that we’re living in a time that’s increasingly controlled by people who tell us we need to shut ourselves off. We need to close our borders, lock our doors, buy guns, build walls, trust nobody. It appears that we’re living in a time that’s...

Congo Brazzaville

Congo Brazzaville

We arrived at the Cameroon border and were pleased to see it was laid out in order with signs to direct you where to go. This was incredible, most borders are a guessing game with most lacking in organisation and order. But this was a real treat. We walked in, got our...

Nigeria

Nigeria

We woke up at the crack of dawn, 5am! To leave the lovely Songhai hotel to make our way to the Nigerian border. We decided we would avoid the notoriously bad Seme border and try the next crossing slightly north at the Igolo town in Benin. We were nervous to cross as...
