After seven weeks of honeymooning, Raquel and I are in London to prepare for our move to South Africa which basically means packing the few possessions we have and meeting up with friends and family for final goodbyes before our flights this Friday. The honeymoon has meant that I am very behind on my blogging  activities however I will be putting that right over the next couple of weeks.

Also, as this was part expat blog, part travel blog and part personal blog, over the next couple of weeks I will be changing the blog a little in light of my “repatriation” to South Africa and my marriage to Raquel, but that will come in due time.

Catching up on blogging with all the tools at my disposal!

Also the honeymoon is not quite over because as soon as we arrive in South Africa, I will be travelling in the region due to a bit of fortune from the Libya experience. I had left most of my possessions (mostly clothes, camping equipment and electronics) in Libya when I went on holiday and the revolution erupted. However late last year I found out that the company I used to work for, managed to get the things out and sent them to Mozambique. Once again though, the timing wasn’t ideal as I was leaving Mozambique and had no idea when I would be back to pick them up.

Well, resigning from my job in Guinea, getting married and moving to South Africa has given me a brilliant opportunity to pick up the things and at the same time use the opportunity to explore South Africa a bit by car (seeing as we are unemployed and all). We haven’t got anything set in stone but the initial itinerary is something along the lines of Swaziland, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana, as shown on this map below. If you have any tips please let us know!

Our Southern African Journey

Once we are back in SA after this little trip we will be settling into getting jobs, looking for housing and other things associated with starting a fresh life in a new country.

So watch out for the flurry of posts that will follow soon!

    Olá Tonito!

    Cheguei aqui porque um amigo meu publicou um link no facebook para o teu post sobre as vantagens do poliglotismo. Li com muito interesse e fui explorando o blog. Eis senão quando percebo que temos o BUDD em comum! Suponho que tenhas sido do ano 07/08, não? No meu ano voltámos a Instambul. Mais engraçado é que por esta altura também estou na África do Sul! Bom, achei piada às coincidências. Bons passeios e muitas felicidades pelo casamento e no regresso a casa.

      Ola Guida!

      Mundo pequeno mesmo! Fiz parte do BUDD no ano 2006/2007, o primeiro grupo que foi a Istanbul. Andas pela Africa do Sul? Fazes o que aqui? Trabalho ligado a Development?

      Obrigado pelo commentario!
