Back to Work

Monday, 8. April 2013

After 10 days and about 3300 km, which may not sound much but 50% was serious driving, I am back to the daily grind.

Stay tuned for details about our Elephant Experience tour with the LROC.

The Days After

Sunday, 7. April 2013

there is quite some clean-up needed after a long trip to get the vehicle back in a state that we can head off again.

And our pets reserve the right to inspect.

Heading Home (Day 10/10)

Saturday, 6. April 2013

DSCN6209-webWhen we set camp last night after a rather long driver we were rather focused on getting some food in our stomach than appreciating the environment. Having a sun downer, exchanging addresses, and recalling all the encounters of the last 9 days where a group of strangers became friends was on the agenda. Although it was the last night jointly around the camp fire it didn’t last too long. Sunrise over the pan this morning was something not to be missed.

Then breaking up camp and line up for a farewell picture.

Botswana – SA Border in sight: Time to decide whether taking it relaxed and staying over night, or pushing home.

Is this democracy? One decides, and the other has to execute?

On home soil! First pushing East while the shadows elongate.

And then there will be quite a stretch southwards in the dark.
