Flag of Namibia  ,
Friday, April 22, 2005

The first weekend of the overland tour was spent in this town on the west of Namibia... Nambia has a fairly major German influence so it was a bit weird to see german architecture contrasting with the vast desert which covers vitually the whole country (which has only about 1 million inhabitants - there really is loads of empty space !!).

A few people did the sky dive, I just went along to find out whether or not the schutes opened (yep, the urge to throw myself out of a plane still hasn't kicked in yet, even though I don't mind flying any more!!). However, the quad biking loads of us did in the dunes was great fun and the sunset over the sand & the ocean was absolutely stunning.

Strangely, we also managed to watch some of the Saints game on the Sunday morning (we were playing Pompey). Although as we were 3-1 down by the time it was switched on, I didn't really want to see any more!
