So its been a slightly nervy last day or two having said goodbye to Sarah at Heathrow on the 25th August as we did not hear from her until today (27th).
Subsequently found out that internet was not working at the hostel and so I was treated with a phone call which was great to have a few minutes to chat. She sounded really excited and the people she had met so far sound like a good group so I was pleased for her.
The main thing Sarah's family and I were glad of ( apart from Sarah's safety of course) was that her bag made it all the way to Walvis Bay, which if you have heard the story of Sarah's last trip to Africa where she was stranded with no luggage to be then saved by her Dad, it was a relief that she wouldn't have to go through that ordeal again.
Of course with the Internet no existent at the Hostel and Sarah being in the remote deserts for most of her time in Nambia, it is unlikely there will be an update on her travels in Nambia for a while.
So your stuck with my thrilling tales of travel preparation.....only kidding..... I don't plan to prepare at all !! haha! .....no really that's about exciting as it gets at the moment.
Having seen Sarah manage to fit all but the Kitchen sink (see below) in her bag I have begun to make headway myself hoping that I can fit all my stuff in one bag!
Stay tuned for more tales..........
