“I told you so!”: About this one time I didn’t want to be right (PART 1).

We entered Rwanda very pissed off at Tanzania mainland, country for tourists, not for travelers. Next time, with more money and hopefully more patience for arrogant catcalling assholes which are an inseparable part of a landscape, exactly like a wildlife to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater (but you don’t need to pay a fee to … Continue reading “I told you so!”: About this one time I didn’t want to be right (PART 1).

Ilala Ferrytale.

Ilala is the one thing on a must-do list in Malawi (and figuring out how to play Malawi Bawo, great game by the way) so we’ve done it (and we play bawo constantly). I don’t know too much about ferries, I’ve been on one with my parents going from Tenerife to Gran Canarias, and I … Continue reading Ilala Ferrytale.

How to pack for a long journey?

Packing again… No matter what place we’re calling “home” and how long we’re staying there, things are mysteriously multiplying and growing larger.

Like in … Continue reading Smell of change.

When we were crossing the one with Botswana, we had problems with Radek’s visa, he kind of overstayed his South African one for two months. Not a big deal… so they wanted him to stay in the country … Continue reading Borders.

Traveling – Long holidays.

Holidays defined by Cambridge Dictionary is a time when someone does not go to work or school but is free to do what they want, such as travel or relax. Yeah, on point. During my studies, consumed with integrals, construction of reactors and writing about bubble flows I was reading all those traveling blogs, torturing … Continue reading Traveling – Long holidays.

Bus through Zambia.

Zambia is huge and has horrible roads. No, I don’t mind the standard of roads themselves – that kind of adjust (=lowers) when you’re in Africa for a while. The problem with Zambian roads is that they’re connecting Copperbelt and Lusaka. That’s it. I’m not kidding, it stopped being funny somewhere on a way to … Continue reading Bus through Zambia.
