Sossusvlei in Namibia

Sossusvlei in Namibia

After a long drive across the featureless Namib desert we arrived at Sesriem and my favourite campsite. Here we drank warm beer and played the locals on a dilapidated pool table long into the evening.

The next day we got up early to walk over dune 44 to Dead Vlei, a clay pan near the salt pan of Sossusvlei to watch the sun rise over the eerie ex-lakebed full of dead trees, before walking to the famous Dune 45 and running down it.

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.
