The past weeks we have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of visitors from all over the world. People from 37 different countries have found their way to our blog! If you're wondering how they found us: we have put our details on http://www.africa-overland.net/Africa
This is a fantastic site if you like to read stories of people making the most wonderful overland trips.
It was special that some people approached us to give advice and we even had a few invitations to visit people during our trip. We hope that everyone will keep on following us the coming months, and especially when our trip starts!
This jerrycan seems ideal to use during our trip. Lifesaver is an English company and has recently started distribution of their products in South Africa. So we hope to organize a jerrycan soon. To be continued....

OK we admit, it has taken us some time, but finally we have become members of the 'digital world' as well. We bought a tablet, which we are already enjoying a lot at home. Our idea is that it's not always nice to carry your laptop around and a tablet you can easily stick in your bag.
The laptop we hope to use to write posts on our blogs. We don't know how often we will be able to post messages, all depending if we find internet cafes along the way. We have read conflicting reports on blogs of other travelers about the internet availability in West Africa, so we'll see. Of course the laptop is also nice to be able to keep track of the expenses, fuel consumption etc. We hope to take lots of nice pictures which we prefer to save on an external hard drive.
