Africa Trip Finished

LandscapeIt was exactly 6 months ago today that we landed in Cairo, delighted, excited and very anxious to get on the bikes and start cycling through Africa; a four year old dream finally being realized. Today, we leave this beautiful and mysterious continent with thousands of km under our belts, with tens of thousands of pictures and even more incredible memories. We leave forever grateful for this experience, thankful that we listened to our hearts and followed our own path and a little sad that it has come to an end so soon. Africa has been a most gracious host.

We fell in love with Africa; the landscapes, the people. Africa is a special place, with its own rhythm, its own set of rules. We quickly got used to going to a restaurant, ordering something from the menu only to be told that it’s “finished”. “Coke finished”, “ice cream finished”, “eggs finished”. No big deal. Today, our first trip to Africa is “finished”. I’m having much more trouble accepting that one.
