D Day at last!

After 18 months of dreaming, planning, packing, packing ,running up  and down stairs our day finally arrived. I can’t explain the feeling I have. It’s almost as if I’ve an important exam to write that determines the outcome of my whole future. 
After welcoming our new tenants, Karen and Clive, such great people, we left the house midday with a beautiful  goodbye from Belinda and Andrea.

We lunched with Haldane and Alison at the Deli. Alison decorated “Tortoise” our slow 4×4 mobile  home

– just married?
It feels a bit like that, such a major thing we’re doing, life changing I’m  sure.

Ian made a remarkable statement to Alison; “Today is the start of my new life – Photographer, Writer and Traveller”. Is that not exciting? Solveig wonders what her new role will be…..

Said goodbye to the shop, Agnes and Martha. Off on N1 and R60 to Swellendam.. Beautiful route. Solveig received best complement ever at campsite office – lady queried her request for pensioners discount!!!! Maybe she needs glasses.  Slept well but took a while to fall asleep. Head so full of thoughts. Emotions high!!

About Ian & Solveig's Overland Adventures

Although we never achieved our original goal of reaching Norway overland, our experience was so unexpectedly rewarding that we've not been able to settled down again! So we added new destinations to our lust for adventure. We hope that you will join us in sharing new exciting places and encounters with the amazing people we meet along the way.
