It’s  very rare that I find myself unable to put something into words, however, after what I saw yesterday, I realise that I can’t properly translate yesterday’s adventure into words, so I thought it best to leave you all with some photos.

Today we’re going to get back on the road with our convoy and head for the beach where hopefully I can take a little swim.

Now before I depart and let you look at all the pretty pictures, let me speak of my other teamate. Maartje. The unique thing about taking a trip like this with experienced travelers is the lessons you’re taught, whether they or yourselves realise it. Maartje has been on the move traveling for 3 years, she’s got an article in Vice, she says it’s not that interesting and I find myself agreeing. It fails to really capture the vibrant energy that surrounds her. When ever we go into a new town or are just driving down a curvy road, she waves and says hello to almost everyone who crosses our path. She’s quick to make friends and is so genuinely kind. Where I usually am a bit weary of who I talk to, she is completely opposite, she talks to anyone, engages with them even if they don’t speak the same language. In a way she’s teaching me not to be afraid of the world around me, to be more open, friendly and kind, She’s a wonderful friend, and a brilliant person. Check out her page on Facebook, Wanderlicious.
