Travel reminiscences - the road to Sossusvlei, Namibia

A year without travel, apart from sending me a bit mad, has sent me trawling through some unpublished photos, starting with the deserts of Namibia.

Starkly beautiful scenes with lonely trees and dunes - that's the Namibian deserts in a nutshell.

This one was shot from a bumping, jumping, swaying, thumping vehicle and yet seems to work ok in hindsight.

Originally I skipped over this photo but on second view I quite like it. On the road to Sossusvlei.

Ok, this is cheating because I have published a very similar photo before, but I think it's worth another look. In the bitterly cold winter wind I remember I was quite out of breath at this point from the climb.

Top of my wish-list for a long-haul trip. Magnificent place, really nice pics.

Well worth the effort when the pandemic is over Paul. We self-drove Namibia and I wouldn't do it any other way.
