A little bit of positivity (and crossed fingers!)

We it has been over a month since I last posted - mainly because there has not been a huge amount to post...! Our leaving date has been pushed back to October due to paperwork issues (which are slowly being posted and worked through!), so we are a little bit in limbo .. back to work, still in the house (minus furniture and our lives in boxes), winter clothes in the loft (hopefully it won't get much colder!), however we are still positive!

The solar panels have now been fitted to both the cars - photos of Rob's car are below - so we have now spent most of the bulk of the money and done all the work (only one more seal to replace I think!). We still need to weigh the car and fill out the Carnet however we want to do this as close as we can to the leaving date, and also look into and pay for travel insurance... if anyone has any ideas or good providers please let me know!! Minor things to get done now.. nearly there!

At the end of the month I am informed we will be at the Stratford Overlanding show 25-27th September, and I think on a stand!! It will be great to see people there and hopefully catch up with Miles who we have been in contact with who is doing the same trip as us leaving in January (details to follow once I get some!).

In the mean time please keep liking our facebook page Where To Next Africa for up-to-date details and photos!

On a side note (real different subject) I have been keeping up with a family friend who is writing a blog as she under goes treatment for MDS - her blog is very well written (unlike this one!) and very inspiring - definitely worth a read!
