A dry river bed in Namibia


I took these on the road between Rosh Pinah and Swakopmund in Namibia. It is quite a long uneventful drive that mainly consists of sand and dust. It is hot and dry with temperatures going as high as 40 degrees Celsius. This is an unforgiving place. A breakdown here could put you in serious danger of dehydration and over exposure to heat.

After hours of nothing, the road gets a little bumpy and there is a sudden bend. Around the corner I find myself surrounded by color and the sounds of Cicada Beetles and birds. Totally AWESOME!

What an awesome place to have a pit stop. There is a cool breeze blowing that makes the heat bearable. No people for miles, quite an incredible feeling. The feeling that all my money, stuff, contacts and loved ones are in this moment totally irrelevant. I have no cell phone signal and I am truly alone. All I have are memories and stories and a longing to be home that is constantly with me.

On the road again.

As always.
