It has been almost a month since I last made an entry here! Things have been really busy with spring break and then getting back to classes and things, so I haven’t had much time to write. However! I have added a really large gallery of photos below, mostly of my 12 day trip in Namibia! My friends and I organized the trip with a company and hoped on a tour, where we drove for 12 days through the desert, from Wintuk all the way down to Cape Town. (we flew to Wintuk)… It was a great experience and although I was hesitant (I’ve never been camping before) it ended up being a really cool time.


Here are a list of some of the things we did on our trip:

1. Camped at various sites including a few places in the middle of no where desert (bushlands)
