I would like to apologize for the lack of posts. We are in Australia, traveling from Sydney to Melbourne in a rented car, camping along the way. Naturally, we have very limited access to Internet.

We will catch up in New Zealand, where we are staying with friends who have lovely high-speed Internet. Look forward to stories of bowing deer, Geisha stalking, and Koala chasing in a few days…

A Quick Africa Update

Posted by Aaron in Posts on 11 5th, 2010

We are starting our third week of our overland Africa tour. We have been having a great time and we are meeting a lot of nice people. We are in a camp ground in Lilongwe, Malawi right now. For the first time on our trip we have access to Wi-Fi. Due to pent up demand we are sharing our computer with the rest of the truck. Instead of being able to catch up on posts like we planned, I am just posting some pictures. I do not think we will be able to post full entries until we reach Cape Town, South Africa. Enjoy making up stories for these pictures!

“Do You Have WiFi?” “…What is WiFi?”

Yup, so I am writing this from another Internet cafe because WiFi is pretty much nonexistent in Africa. I really need to update our Website with our Egypt trip with Karen, but I need fast WiFi to upload the pictures and videos we took. We had a fabulous time, and I will post the entry as soon as I can (sorry, Karen!).

Anyway, we are on the 10th day of our 7-week tour, heading out of Zanzibar, a gorgeous island off the coast of Tanzania, and heading back into the mainland to make our way into Malawi. We are traveling with about 24 other people, and I was a bit skeptical at first as Aaron and I enjoyed traveling solo and this was a big change. But I have to say, I am really enjoying the tour so far as the other people are so nice and we are becoming fast friends. I will be tremendously sad once our tour is over and we all head our separate ways.

Again, I apologize that our posts are few and far between, but there isn’t much we can do as we are in Africa and they don’t have quite the Internet speed we were hoping for. Oh, well!

Miss you all!
