Gorilla Tracking!

Been there, done that! Guys, what the experience! When they were telling us “once in a lifetime experience” we were considering… mostly our budget. Once in a lifetime, you can empty your wallet (with all attached bank accounts) and convince yourself, that it’s “a good idea”.

“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).

How to pack for a long journey?

Today's post will be short. Why? First of all we’re in Botswana only a week, so I won’t make a screed out of it, secondly now we’re lacking both internet and power, which shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone considering that 85% of this country is a desert and elephants on the pavement are more … Continue reading Strange Botswana.
