    Sesriem

    April 3 in Namibia ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    The last few days we have truly been in the middle of nowhere. One big advantage of this, is the sparkle of the clear desert night sky. There is something magical about staring up at the milky way.

    The drive to Sesriem rewarded us with the largest sand dunes in the world. It was another early start as we entered the park at sunrise. Actually all of our starts have been before sunrise, not my favourite thing to get up when it is dark but I take solace in the fact that it's harder for Kat ;) However, she has been doing it, so no excuses for getting up late when we get back to England.

    We got to climb the largest sand dune in the world, the imaginatively named Dune 45. It didn't look that high but climbing it was tough. The sun is unrelenting, even that early in the morning and the sand just falls away under your feet, making it doubly hard.

    It was so worth it though. Kat was very happy playing with her camera but I don't think the orangeness of the sand and the blueness of the sky can be done justice.
