First Wildlife Spotting.

Saw a group of black/white Sacred Ibises in a ditch next to the traffic jam in Nairobi.


4u rommelige en onrustige slaap in 2 dagen is niet goed voor je. Nu zwalkende zombie. In Nairobi bijslapen.

Paris, mais oui!

After ruff turbulence in preparation of the African bumpy roads, now stop in Paris. Why? To stock some enjera?

I'm on my way.

In the train to catch the plane in Brussels. No way back :-) #travel

The Fellowsheep of the King

"And so it begins..." I'm on my way! 10 minutes walking through the rain. To experience why you leave The Dutch Summer behind. Now in the train to Brussels. Bags are non-backpacker heavy. I learn the hard way! Flight departs at 20h, so should be there in time. And all stuff I forgot? Can't do anything about it. Forgot the dirst thing: stylus of my phone...

Reducing kilos

Decided to cut some weight. Diving mask + snorkel stay at home. Will be leaky diving...

1 Day and I'm off!

Doing my last preparations. Within 24h I will be on my way! Hurray.
I only have to make sure the blogging by SMS works... Some programming left to do. Hmmm.

Well, anyways. Don't expect daily posts, since I won't be able to find an internet café too frequently.

But I'll keep you posted!
First stop: Brussels, second stop: Addis Abbeba, Ethiopia. And then finally Nairobi in Kenya!
