cape cross seals

Our holiday vs Corona – 5

On our way north we drive alongside the coast for a while. We want to visit Cape Cross, because there is a large seal colony. Innumerable wrecks lie in the sea along side this stretch of land, thrown and perished by the treacherous currents, strong winds and suddenly emerging fog back in the days.

This is an easy and quick fix because we have the right tool with us to do so. It’s…

THE virus Corona entered our country, the Netherlands, last week but no one is panicking just now. There isn’t a travel warning for Namibia yet. At the moment Namibia is even Corona free !!…
