Never Miss a Post!
It has been a lifelong dream of mine to drive through Africa. When I realised that my trusty Toyota Conquest (fondly named Tracy) would be 20 years old this year and I would be 80, there couldn't be a better time to fulfil my dream and together with 100 years of life’s experiences, together we hope to set off on the adventure of a lifetime.
Despite my numerous offers to accompany friends across Africa, sadly no one took me up on it.
Having recently lost my partner of 33 years, raised 4 children and been a “gogo” to 9 grandchildren - I have decided that its time to be the master of my own destiny and what better time than to set off on the adventure of a lifetime?
People look at me in horror when I tell them I’m venturing forth across Africa in a 1997,1600 Toyota Conquest with close to 400 000km’s on the clock. But who else would i choose as my partner in crime? For a quarter of my life, Tracy has been my trusty stead. Windows wound down, music playing, seatbelt clipped in, I could always roar off into the sunset when I needed to.
So here we go again. Come and join me on the journey...
