Welcome to our Africa blog

We hope all our families and friends will log in from time to time to see how we're getting on - and just to touch base. We all know we shall miss everyone and this is one of the ways we hope to keep in touch. And, of course, we shall be logging on to Skype and emailing whenever we get the chance. This is a massive adventure for us all with a shed load of planning , but once you've fallen for Africa you just have to see more. So here we go!

Birthday for Chris

After leaving home only 1 week ago, this must be the most unusual birthday ever .. Camping in the sand dunes on the Indian Ocean, in Mozambique. And a BIG thank you for the cards, what a surprise that was over his breakfast of scrambled egg and smoked salmon (without the salmon), mango and pineapple. Vehicle is holding up, and so are we. Just starting to slow down.
