Namibia Part 1!

4 Mar

I am on a much needed vacation! Heather and Kelsey arrived in Ghanzi Friday evening and I got to show them Ghanzi’s nightlife (hopping’, let me tell you!)

Saturday morning we began our trek to Namibia. We were hitching so we were a little unsure of how it would go. We headed to the hitching spot out of Ghanzi and started to get settled in for a long wait, when after just a few minutes we got an air conditioned ride to Junction 44 (the turn off towards namibia) which costed us 10 pula. At the junction we lucked out again! We got another air conditioned ride within minutes. The driver was super nice and took us all the way to Windhoek and refused to take any money from us all. So, we made it all the way from Ghanzi to Windhoek for less than $2!

There is not a lot to do in Windhoek but we had a great time catching up with each other, eating good food, making new friends and eating real ice cream!

Today we arrived in the beautiful Swakopmund. We spent the afternoon exploring the town and had some delicious fresh seafood for dinner. We were enjoying our food when a man came over and said his friend wanted our help in checking an item off his bucket list: he wanted to take a piece of food off someone’s plate at a restaurant! We drove a hard bargain and got a round of yummy cocktails in return for Heather’s potatoe!

We are now planning our activities to make the most of the ocean and the and dunes!
