“Brrraaap brrraaap brraaap!”  My iPhone’s alarm function chirped at 5:00am on the dot. I remember making a mental note that I really had to change the ringtone that I had selected to wake me up – I was getting sick of hearing it, and it wasn’t making waking up in the pitch-black of the early […]

Waking up in Windhoek was especially nice – not only having the luxurious king sized bed, but knowing that we were going to be treated to a breakfast that was a touch fancier than we had grown accustomed to since living on the truck for the past 12 days was something I’m sure that the […]
