  • Tracking Down A TyreWe had a good night's rest at our hotel and after a very odd breakfast we checked out around 9.30 having had to revise our original plans for the day. It didn't seem sensible to go back into Etosha with Posted by RoyandIngrid in Carry On Travelling... | Nov 10, 2016

  • Walvis Bay and SwakopmundToday was our longest drive day, but we still decided to get up to watch the sunrise from our roof terrace, not as bright as the sunsets but still lovely.

  • Two women, a big car and a roadmap ...… that is how the story of this traveladventure begins.

  • Jonathan's mapAfter breakfast we hit the road using Jonathan’s map. We follow the rocky driveway passing the guesthouses. It’s a bumpy start but we enjoy every minute. We reach the gate leading up to a gravel C-road and unlock the chain. Posted by Petravs in How I remember Namibia | May 5, 2016

  • Messages from the ancient peopleOur hearts don’t break leaving Swakopmund. A mist covers the town and sticks with us along the coastal drive before we make a turn landinwards.

  • "No, there is no food."At breakfast in Twyfelfontein Lodge we have a chat with 2 Australian couples who are travelling together. They’ve already had 4 flat tires!
