Bryan here. Just wanted to give everyone an update of where we are and our future plans. Those that are on Facebook already know part of what I’m about to say, but we realize that not everyone has subjected themselves to the evil world of Facebook.
Well, our 4.5 months in Africa are coming to an end soon. We’re currently in Swakopmund, Namibia (a small German settlement on the west coast of Namibia). We left the United States for the second leg of our trip nearly 8 months ago, and only have 3 weeks left in Africa before we board our plane home. By no means is this the end of our journey. We’d always planned to come home for a couple of weeks before setting off to explore Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the middle-East. But now, things have slightly changed. We will spend a week in northern Virginia starting April 5th and then a week in Hampton Roads (as planned), but then we’ll hop in our Expedition (with Uncle David’s trailer in tow) and set off to travel parts of the USA and Canada that we’ve never been before. The weather in the States and Canada from April to September is just too good to pass up. After we’ve finished our USA/Canada tour we’ll get back on course and finish up our world tour.
With all that said, we’re hoping that our readers can provide us some input on where to go. Please let us know of any “must-see” places, events, concerts, restaurants, etc. in your neck of the woods; by commenting below. Also, we’d love to meet up with as many friends and family along the way.
On another note, we’d like to pass another “gift” onto our readers. Recently, I entered a photo competition through Oasis Overland (the company we’re traveling through Africa with; although they have tours all over the world). I won 3rd place in the competition, which entitles me to discounts on any future Oasis trips. I don’t plan to use this prize in the next 12 months, but I can give it away to family or friends. Please pass the word if you know anyone that’s interested. (Note: I won with my photo of the Mursi tribal women in the Omo Valley region of Ethiopia; to the right).
Well, thanks for listening to me ramble. Kristin will be back soon with her usual updates. See everyone in April!
