Hello. Welcome. If you’re here, you probably actually know me or Erin already. So you’re not really wondering what we’re like, what our favorite color is, or how many bottles of wine we can drink in a sitting. You’re probably here because you’re checking in to see how we’re doing.
Our plan for this trip is to arrive in Zanzibar on August 4th and leave Cape Town on December 22nd. We’ll pass through Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. When we get to Cape Town, weâ€™ve arranged through WWOOF to work on a biodynamic (read: ultra-organic) farm with an attached inn/guesthouse. Weâ€™re also planning on taking motorcycle lessons while weâ€™re in the area because neither of us know how to ride.
Then weâ€™re heading back to the states. Idaho for Christmas with the family, Santa Fe for a wedding, Missoula for some partying, then Kansas City to wait for the weather to warm up. When the weather is sufficiently warm, weâ€™ll hop on our newly purchased bikes and start heading south. The plan is to make it to Argentina. We might make it, we might not. But itâ€™ll be fun trying at least.
This website is where we, if all goes to plan (which it normally does not), will write about what we’ve seen, where we’ve got, and if you’re lucky, actual pictures documenting the places we’ve seen. Stories without pictures may as well be fiction. The belief just isn’t as possiblicitious.
Feel free to put comments on anything up here, it’s always nice to know people are actually using it!
