|My New African Motorhome|
Consequently I have not been out in MY motorhome nearly as frequently even though the weather has at times been glorious.
I have had to deal with some things that I have put off. One of these was my phone. It had developed a minor glitch (I had approached tech people to resolve it, but they were not interested). I decided the only solution was to get a new phone. (I needed a new one anyway).
Then other unexpected difficulties have arisen, all of which took up more time.
Checking my social media somehow dropped off my radar (That is probably a generation thing). As a result it is some while since my last blog post.
On 1st October I am off on a 35 day motorhome tour of Southern Africa. I am a bit nervous but also a bit despondent as I am not able to take Pearl with me (will she understand?) So I will be completely on my own.
Fortunately there are 11 other motorhomes going so I will have people to talk to.
We travel independently, not in convoy. We just have to be at the designated campsite by the evening. If we encounter a problem on the way there is someone to assist.
Though this is not my preferred way of travelling it is the best in a place that I have so little knowledge and experience of. However I am learning fast. By the time I return home I will know so much more.
I fly into Johannesburg. Here I meet a college friend. I want her to take me to a supermarket to stock up on food. (Being Coeliac I my diet is restrictive so I want some time to become a little familiar with shops in Africa before setting off.)
Then we go to the motorhome depot. Collect our motorhomes. Then set off
