Viewing the World from a Two-Wheeled Perspective

Sundowner

Posted by on Oct 18, 2014 in Africa, Namibia | Comments Off on Sundowner

One of the more popular things to do here in Namibia (as a tourist, anyways, and I try to do it myself, to take special note at the end of the day) is to go on a “Sundowner”. That’s marking the special moment of the day when the sun goes down. I like to give thanks at the end of the day because I lead such a lucky life. A sundowner is a great way to do it! Here’s my sundowner at Uis (Namibia):   Please follow and like...

Sossusvlei

Posted by on Oct 13, 2014 in Africa, Namibia | Comments Off on Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan surrounded by high red dunes, located in the southern part of the Namib Desert. It’s just a couple hundred kilometers south of Windhoek, but I had never traveled there until a couple of days ago with Renedian Adventures’ motorcycle tour. Let me tell you: it’s a magical place. I don’t have too many pictures from there because of a surprising turn of events: I was actually so scared climbing the dunes that I forgot to take pictures! Here are a few marvels along the way before I got too scared to photograph:     Those are my pictures above. Here are some I have borrowed from the Interwebs:       Sossusvlei is a place I need to go back to. It’s magnificent and so very peaceful. Please follow and like...

Motorcycle Touring in Namibia

Posted by on Oct 11, 2014 in Africa, Namibia | Comments Off on Motorcycle Touring in Namibia

Well, my dream finally came true and I was able to ride a motorcycle (a BMW F650 GS) in Namibia. I joined up with a great group of people on a Renedian Adventures motorcycle safari (www.Renedian.com) and met delightful people, rode great roads, and ate way too much good food. I now have new friends and several kms of riding in Africa under my belt.   Please follow and like...

Off the Farm for a Week

I’ve been on Okambara for the past month and have loved it, but it’s time for a little change. I’m in Windhoek getting supplies, catching up with new friends and recharging.   Of course, I’m never too far from a motorcycle. Next up:   Yes, a motorcycle tour! 🙂 Please follow and like...

Up close and personal with the elephants

Posted by on Sep 19, 2014 in Africa, Namibia | Comments Off on Up close and personal with the elephants

One of the things we do on Okambara is observe the elephants’ feeding behaviors in order to determine what a sustainable number of elephants are for a given size of farm. Some days we can see them easily, and other days they are difficult to see. (It’s absolutely amazing to me how one can “lose” a herd of 9 elephants on a farm!) The other amazing thing is how QUIET they can be. Sure, they trumpet at each other every once in a while, but normally they are near-silent. Pretty amazing given their size.   So this is normally what we see:   But we came around the corner and saw this:     Here’s our encounter the other day:   Please follow and like...
