Revisiting Zanzibar

Eight months after our return from our “I do Africa” adventure, we have been very fortunate to revisit Zanzibar. This time it was different since it was 5 star accommodation instead of our “I do Africa” minimal budget.

It Never Rains

We woke up in the wee hours of the morning to the worst storm we’ve experienced on this trip. The rain was pouring down on the island and instantly we knew the already rough day ahead would get progressively worse if the cloudburst did not subside by morning.  We ended up on this isle somewhere … Continue reading »

Hospitalised

After 14 weeks of travelling with adventurous local dining and countless encounters with runny nosed children, we have miraculously managed to stay in good health.  Sure there has been some discomfort after a couple of ‘interesting’ meals and we have had the odd sore throat but nothing serious, until now.

Every time we saw a huge pool of mucky water we knew that … Continue reading »

Tough Times

Before we embarked on this crazy honeymoon journey we were aware of the ‘hard times’ we would inevitably need to face and battle through. Times that will be a requirement to complete this adventure successfully. We were conscious of the fact that our motorcycle, our own characters and our marriage will be tested and challenged … Continue reading »

Recovering

After losing most of our cooking equipment and medical kits we had a lot to do before we could leave Dar es Salaam. The bike wasn’t in the best condition either and the side panniers had to be replaced after the theft. We had managed to find a handful of medicine, the very bare necessities … Continue reading »

Setbacks

The day before our planned departure from Dar es Salaam we suffered a huge setback. Guillaume took a ride to the city centre to give an old man a pair of welding goggles that we had bought him with some of the money donated by friends and family for this purpose. The man is welding … Continue reading »
