HELLO + WELCOME as we drive from Sydney to London, via Africa. As we roll we will be sharing our experience with you. Feel free to dive on in and to leave us a comment below.
Along the way we pulled in to Sesriem – the base for exploring Nambia’s most famous tourist attractions. Including the sand dunes of Namib Nukulft National Park and the trees of the Deadvlei.
We visited the area a few years ago. It was never in our plans to see it again, however something drew us back. Sitting at sunset on top of Dune 45 we both felt so grateful we made the decision to come. Being here again without a single other tourist in sight and with our own car gave us both an overwhelming sense of satisfaction. The sun fell and the colours of the earth shifted below, we whispered words: We’re doing what we said we would. We’ve made our dream a reality. I can’t believe we’re here. This has got to be one of the most magnificent views in the whole World.
All this soul speak soon got smashed with fun as we ran down the side of the dune and plummeted hundreds of metres.
