Heading off!

22 Jun

Finally the time has come. We will be heading off tomorrow morning. Built the bikes up yesterday, getting food supplies today. We have sorted out the route to Katima, well actually there’s only one road so didn’t have much route planning to do.

Here in the city of Rundu we have been couch surfing with some US Peace Corp volunteers and they have hooked us up with all the info for our route along the way which has been super helpful.

Ohhhh I can smell the adventure. Definitely feels like Africa now, Rundu Namibia’s second largest city is home to dirt/sandy roads, heat, rubbish, friendly people, cheap weird food.  I like the vibe, I’m enjoying being back in the developing world, and the people here in northern Namibia aren’t forceful, they give you your space, which is quite refreshing compared to most places I have traveled, as usually being a white guy in a developed place represents you’re a walking dollar sign.

OK, This is just a quick post to let you know we are finally off tomorrow, rather excited that after all this planning we will be on our bikes. Internet will be sparse until we hit Katima around 10th of July so we won’t be on the net much.

Nuthin but love Hap
