It’s here!  Really it is!  After tackling the writing, and the technical challenges of publishing, the book is finally available on Amazon. Your support during the writing and now for the launch has been amazing. Here is a little snippet for you to whet the appetite: “We drove south to M’Hamid for an unquestionably touristy …

The journey south

Well, at some point, we knew we would have to point Brodie south and return to South Africa.  We have no interested in tackling Egypt or Syria.  We didn’t see very much of South Africa earlier in the year, and so we have saved this as the final country on our adventure. But first, we …

We ended up staying the rest of the day, and the following day in Bukoka with Tom & Jemina.  We joined them at the Spice Beach Hotel where the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.  We were served casual breakfast on the terrace – eating off our laps in a camping fashion!  They made space …

Travel fatigue

IMG_5493 (448x336)

We’re both tired. We have been on the road for more than 10 months now.  10 months of living out of the car.  10 months of the almost daily surprise of where to stay that night  10 months of sensory overload as we experience so many new sites, sights, sounds, emotions. This part of Tanzania …
