In the words of Shakira…It’s time for Africa!!

So…I’m off! All packed up, everything fit, almost… My backpack is pretty bloody heavy so I will have to be very careful not to sustain a neck injury before I arrive!

The weather in Khartoum is HOT HOT HOT! And that is most certainly an understatement. I have never been exposed to temperatures above 36 degrees, so have no idea how I will endure it. Stay tuned!


This song, produced in honour of South Africa’s FIFA 2010 Football World Cup team, has been the soundtrack to my trip preparations so far, from when the idea of travelling to Africa was merely a “bee in my bonnet”. It represents the joy and celebration of life at the heart of the African culture 🙂

As you can tell, I’m raring to go so goodbye, Auf Wiedersehen, arrivederci and ma’a salama to you all! I’ll see you in Sudan!!
