Sandstone Shadows

Three days drive via a petrified forest and Cape Cross seal colony (120,000 seals in one place stinks) to the resort of Swakopmund – a bit like Benidorm for Germans

Spent the morning sea fishing off a boat – caught mostly inedible crayfish, but also a few bream, including a massive one that got away… Watched an enormous sandstorm come out of the desert.

Lazy afternoon then went quad biking at dusk, watching the sunset over the dunes was wonderful, but made even better by the presence of a really enthusiastic south african lady dancing about with joy – “This is perfection”. Drove back in dark, watching a lightning storm on the horizon, over our next destination.

Late that evening we had dinner in a ridiculous german-owned wild west saloon.

Since leaving London in 2006 I’ve travelled, worked, volunteered and lived in over 90 countries. Highlights so far would be driving along the Silk Road from Beijing to Istanbul, a complete circuit of South America and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in Costa Rica. I’m currently back in Beijing, as a base to visit more of Asia and attempt to learn Mandarin.
