Life can be pretty surreal at times. And travel is no exception to the rule. We seem to have some of our strangest experiences when we are on the road. Some of them are completely out of our control and we just have to hang on and enjoy the ride. While others have been completely our own doing. A momentary lapse of reason if you will. Either way, they make for some fun stories around the campfire. Here are a few of ours in no particular order.
Camped in a zoo in Sudan-We arrived in Dongola, Sudan after 6 days of cycling in the desert. We hadn’t showered and we were covered in dirt and sweat. We weren’t treated to luxury though, we had set up camp in an old abandoned zoo. Apparently a turtle still roamed the grounds but we never saw it. The zoo had high steel walls and nobody was allowed in. It was pretty strange, because we were fenced in while the town looked at us from outside. We were monkeys in a cage? This may sound a little odd already, but it didn’t become really strange until we all started bathing in our red supply boxes. They were carried on our supply trucks and held all of our gear. someone found a hose, so we all filled up our little 100 litre boxes and took a bath. Weird.

I didn’t want to do it. I looked for every excuse leading up and during to our voyage to Antarctica trying to justify why it would be ok if I didn’t take the Polar Plunge.
I had never witnessed so many shades of blue and I couldn’t comprehend the beauty around me.
But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
