    William village here we come

    July 6 in Malawi ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Our first day heading to the build and to hopefully meet the children we met the last time. Can’t wait. Yesterday was full of hugs and ‘God Bless’ from Catherine, Cornelius, Thomas and John who worked in the hotel when we were last here. It’s like a home from home 💖

    Day three jogging

    July 9 in Malawi ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    For three days I’ve managed to get my exercise in, this morning it wasn’t quite thirty minutes, meaning my calories burning has exceeded 2000. This morning we had a wee club going which made it easier and I spent less time counting steps and minutes and more time enjoying the run. Day three at work so pictures of the build to ...Read more

    Manis brought me a gift

    July 9 in Malawi ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    My friend Manis from two years ago brought me a gift today. Nedson from dream travel was a star and was able to let her know that I’m a veggie and don’t eat chicken but she was profusely thanked for the thought. People with very little can show kindness that beggars belief in our society of dog eat dog and people looking out for themselves. It was awesome 👏👏 👏💖💖💖Read more

    Meeting the family

    July 9 in Malawi ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Manis brought her Mum and Dad to meet me and I’d already met her older sister and older and younger brothers. At sixteen she is waiting for her results before moving on to secondary school. I’d planned to sponsor her two years ago but she couldn’t be found when people returned to the visit. She’s a bright girl and has made sure that she found me on the first day. She’s due to go to secondary after her results come in. Happy days 😊Read more

    Final days on the build

    July 15 in Malawi ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Arrive on our second last day and not much progress has been made since the windows were put in. Looks very much like the builders have been waiting for us 😞. Spent some time with baby Jonathan and playing with the kids. Also watched the kids at work in school. Mark tried to show off his footballing prowess but he was up against it as some of the kids were mini Peles in the makingRead more

    Mit Porsche nach Lilongwe

    October 1, 2018 in Malawi ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    Version française plus bas...

    Das Ende unseres Malawi-Aufenthalts naht. Wir wollen nach Lilongwe, die Hauptstadt. Von dort sind es etwa 100 km bis zum Grenzübergang nach Sambia, unsere nächste Destination. Auf der Lichenya- Hütte haben wir Franzosen getroffen, die durch Malawi getrampt sind. Das finden wir eine sehr gute Idee. Keine überfüllten Minibusse, kein langes Warten (hoffentlich) und potentiell nette Begegnungen. Ein neues Transportabenteuer - wir wollen es probieren:

    Per Motorrad- Taxi lassen wir uns an die Hauptverbindungsstraße bringen. Mit drei tramps schaffen wir es über Blantyre am späten Nachmittag in Lilongwe anzukommen. Viel schneller und komfortabler als mit Minibus. In Malawi ist trampen nicht unbekannt, man beteiligt sich einfach an den Fahrkosten. Der letzte tramp ist der längste und schnellste: dank Sonias Fragekünsten an eine Tankstelle fahren wir in Rekordzeit mit dem wohl einzigsten Porsche Malawis, laut Fahrer, nach Lilongwe durch eins der ärmsten Länder Afrikas. Verrückte Welt.

    Vive le stop!!! ça y est on s'y met suite à la rencontre avec Quentin et Sybile dans les montagnes. Et on démarre plutôt pas mal avec Paul et Mate qui nous emmènent jusqu'à Lilongwe, la capitale. Cerise sur le gâteau: je dégote the Porsche du Malawi, la seule selon son conducteur tout fier!! Ça nous change des mini-bus blindés et tout défoncés; ) Le contraste est dinguos!
    En tout cas, super expérience et belle rencontre avec deux Malawiens à la bonne humeur!!
