We were talking the other day about all of the things that we were afraid of before we left for Africa. We had traveled around the world before, but this was something completely different.

We were in for quite and adventure.
It is funny to think of all of the irrational fears that we had before leaving. Well, I should say that I had. Dave tends to go with the flow better than me, but that is not to say he wasn’t curious on how we were going to deal with problems that would arise.
So without further adieu, here are some fears that we had about camping and cycling our way down Africa, what we encountered and how we dealt with them.
