8 MONTH ON THE ROAD

I By:   I 11 months ago I   Camping, CULTURE, Family, Month by month, TANZANIA 8 MONTH ON THE ROAD By PHILIP | 20 September 2018 “You have traveled half way around the world”, 20.000km says Thomas the “true” Massai watching over us every step we take at Migombani Camp in the Mto Wa Mbo village at the access road towards the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti Conservation Area in northern Tanzania. We are overlooking the Lake Manyara and the breathtaking views put things into a wider perspective for us as life seems to change constantly. It was only 3 weeks ago when a tractor pulled us up the steep slope to the magnificent camp where our Land Cruiser was tested to the bones and was unable to pull our caravan and all our belongings uphill.

We do explain that all the plastic waste is mainly coming from Zanzibar and other areas because they don’t have a proper waste management running.

In all southern African countries we have traveled so far the people just burn the plastic. „But why is it allowed to send any packaging around if a country can’t deal with it?“ Rudy ask... READ MORE

6 MONTH ON THE ROAD

I By:   I 1 year ago I   HOME SCHOOLING, KIDS + TRAVEL, MALAWI, Month by month, MOZAMBIQUE, New friends, TANZANIA 6 MONTH ON THE ROAD By PHILIP | 16 July 2018 It is Malawi, the so called warm heart of Africa, that transformed our perception of the African continent and helped us to gain a different perspective as to how things actually matter in our lives that we were living back home. After spending several weeks in Zimbabwe (see our last blog entry) we embarked further north east through the TETE corridor in Mozambique into Malawi – Chembe village , Cape McClear, on the southern tip of the so called lake of stars. David Livingstone, the big explorer, who’s heritage lives on in many entities in this part of the world has called it the lake of stars referring to the many fisher boats that light their lanterns at night while out on the lake fishing. It has been almost 3 month since we left St... READ MORE
