Border Crossings and Familiar Territory

I left Myeba, Tanzania and made the short trip to the Tanzanian/Zambian border at Tundoma. I was concerned I was going to encounter a bureaucratic nightmare with the truck having well overstayed the vehicle importation paperwork. However, I walked into the Tanzanian Revenue Authority and painlessly handed over my paperwork and proceeded to the immigration […]

Tanzania part 2

I woke up in my guest bed somewhere North of Singida. I was covered in mosquito bites. I mentally added malaria to the ever growing list of concerns I was traveling with including: running out of cash, the Land Rover breaking down, and dehydration.   After my experience from the prior day, I decided to head back to […]

Kenya and Tanzania part 1

I touched down at JomoKenyatta International Airport at 3:45 am where I obtained my transit visa�into Kenya. After retrieving my bags I approached the taxi and bus�kiosk where I bought a 8am bus ticket to Arusha, Tanzania. I then proceeded to the airport cafe where I would spend the next 4 hours of my life […]

Itinerary

A quick preemptive note before launching into my first post from the road … I know I’ve done a woefully inadequate job of posting updates or in fact anything. I can pass some of the blame on bad Internet / no Internet connections, but I must admit some of it is pure selfishness. I have often […]

Off to the Mountain

June 25, 2007Curtis Wegener Its is early Tuesday morning and we are off to the mountain. To tell you the truth, Virginia is not excited, the boys are over the moon, and I, the fearless leander, am frankly terrified. The comments that we have heard so far range from the greatest to I just wanted […]

Snorking in the Indian Ocean, June 23

Guys are so different than Girls at the Beach. Where girls want to lay out, read, listen to music, and relax….. guys want to play tag, snorkel, play poker, and eat…. so being out numbered we did what guys want to do! We Slept in til 9, which is late. We ate the complimentary breakfast […]

Sun. June 24

Today got off to an early start (430) at the Casa Del Mar in Jambiani, as we had to catch a taxi back to Stone Town and a ferry back to the mainland to leave at 730. The ferry company, Sea Star, although departing on time, sold more tickets than there were seats, which made […]

Day at the Beach

June 22, 2007 Curtis WegenerWe have left Stone Town for the wide adventure of the Indian Ocean. Our newest best friend Lars from Norway tells us the Coco Beach is the very best, so off we go. On a shared bus with two very nice Irish girls and two typical French bums. One pair pleasant, […]
