What a fabulous trip! Your website conveys the adventure so beautifully :-) We have also spent a bit of time beyond the borders of ZA in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Namibia. I think once you have Africa in your heart, it stays there. Its a tough/hard continent but its filled with amazing mystery and depth :-)
Hi guys, Just a quick thank you email, we are doing the same (ish) trip as you, we are travelling from London to Cape town by the west coast and back to London via the east coast. Your GPS coordinates have been invaluable to us at times, we are currently in the Terminus hotel in Lobito and even managed to bag a shower, I did have a laugh to myself when I saw the bidet in the toilet!
Hope life is treating you well in South Africa, Namibia is touching distance away and we are so looking forward to a huge steak and glass of wine (bliss!!!)
Our blog, which is very behind schedule, is above, you can have a look and reminisce about your adventure.
Dear Neil & Catherine, What a fantastic trip you've made! WOW! I am busy with making my photo-album. I found the card that you give me with the site on it. How are you now? I had a great time in South-Africa.
Hi there, Just found your card again. So you did it almost as you expected your journey to be from what I can see from your track in Google Earth. Congratulations. Maybe now you consider doing it the other way round. No I'am kidding. Not have had time enough to read your adventure thoroughly but the little I've read makes my mouth water. Oh yes I forgot to say who is writing. I'm one of the couple of Bretons who travelled along with you across Mauritania up to Saint-Louis. Cheers. Marc & Annie
