At last, my last post…….South Africa

That’s it finished. My first and last ever blog. It was hard work for someone with little IT knowledge. I know so much more, now I’ve finished but that’s all too late!! 🙂

A huge Thank you to Julia Albu and all her family and friends for their generosity and kindness and for making me so welcome at the end of the most amazing road trip I have ever done, and yes I would do it again tomorrow but would take 6 months rather than 3 .

The world is an amazing place filled with many more good people than bad guys. This trip done with minimal planning and no spares for the car etc was as close to real freedom as I have ever experienced. Yes its a bit scary and yes, you need luck and yes it could go wrong, but you don’t know until you try it. Use your common sense and seek advice from the locals as you travel, unless you are really unlucky or stupid, you will be safe and have the time of your life.
