During my time in Khartoum I went to Omdurman, a city just North of Khartoum, where every Friday, just before sunset, there's a dancing ceremony. It is held in the cemetery next to the tomb of Sufi leaders.

Generosity in Sudan

Pyramids of Meroe
posted on 26 Mar 2017 Khartoum — 4 Feb 2016 Pyramids of Meroe

The point of my trip was to travel over land as much as possible. Hitchhiking, (mini)buses, trains, boats. But when I left Belgium I was sure to fly at least one time. I would go from Egypt to Ethiopia by air as to avoid travelling in Sudan, which was said to be very unsafe.

I am recovering just fine but I haven't recovered well enough to finish my cycling trip this time around. So I left my bicycle at Wild Spirit and I'm going to continue my trip some time in the future.

Bikepacking from Malawi to Zambia

The Humber, when it was brand new
posted on 10 Nov 2016 Rufunsa — 15 Oct 2016 The Humber, when it was brand new

I've been backpacking for quite a while now. More than a year! It has been incredible. And still is. But I had been thinking of changing my mode of transport. More specifically to cycling. On the one hand because I had been squeezed into too many minibuses on my way down. On the other hand because other people had inspired me to try cycling.

The Bethlehem Wall

Many people know about the Berlin Wall. And that it was taken down in '89, uniting east and west Berlin. Tourists visit the Wall and its museums. Learning about the dark times and remembering themselves that this shouldn't happen again.

We came back to Hebron completely overwhelmed by what had happened in Nabi Saley. So we decided to help out with ISM where we could.
