I'm fully aware that things don't always go exactly as planned, but I'm maybe even more aware that the unexpected bumps are sometimes what make the best adventures.
I believe in always having a plan B and sometimes plans C and D too. I'll continuously be preparing for the worst, but expecting the best. Almost every element of the journey has some level of flexibility, and adaptability is a paramount component of every plan made.
I love to travel and risk is an inevitable part of it. I have no intention of voluntarily getting in harm's way and will always choose the safest route to keep everyone safe. I have every intention to get home safe and sound!
What if there's bad weather?
I've allotted extra time to wait it out. The project schedule will, in some instances, be a bit of a moving target with a certain amount of flexibility.
What if the wifi goes down?
The world will come to an end as we know it... Realistically, this might lead to an interruption of updates and bring other difficulties, but I'll deal with those as they happen.
Will you be travelling alone?
I hope not! I have several friends who will likely be joining me for different legs of the trip. They have all graciously offered to not only keep me company but also be the much-needed assistance and extra hands that I will need in order to successfully document, photograph and get the most of each location.
When will all of this be happening?
I left Cape Town in June 2021 and hope to be on the road for 18 months.
Why aren’t you visiting _____ location?
The trip is an ever-evolving adventure with locations being added all the time. Even if I am on the road already, if the right location pops up and I can make it happen, you better believe I will! Please feel free to email me suggestions.
Can you take my portrait while you are on the road?
You bet! If you are somewhat along my general route, I would be more than thrilled to make a pit stop for an amazing portrait session. Email me and we can work out the details!
What's the most awesome thing about this project?
We're attempting to create the opportunity for any traveller to embark on an excursion across Africa. Sure, there's a rough agenda (to experience all that is Africa) with some solid leadership and guidance (we'll be along with everyone), but everyone has a say in where we go and what we do. We'll create our own fresh adventure every day. Getting there is, like, 97% of the fun...
Where does my money go?
Your donation helps me along the trip with expenses such as transportation, accommodation, PCR Tests, and food. The remaining funds will cover equipment for filming such as a boom mike, possibly a GoPro, and film and casing. We are appreciative of anything you can donate, we are happy to send you postcards, artwork (seen above), and more!
When do I get my reward?
Rewards will be sent.
I really can't make a pledge right now, is there another way I can help?
Absolutely :) The biggest thing you can do to help is to share this project with your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or your other favorite sites
I'm interested in offering corporate support, how can I contact you about that?
You can email me either via the contact form
How can you get involved?
You're in the right place! We've listed some ways for you to be a part of the experience via the incentives! If you are unable to give financially but still want to help, you can always post this project on social media. A like on Facebook or a tweet on Twitter can mean a lot more than you might think. Spreading the word in person is always a possibility, too.
