Not your average travel blog

The old Switch-e-roo

There isn’t much that knocks the ability to just keep going, but life does throw up some curveballs.
Due to volatile and uncertain politics, fickle tourism, extremely corrupt and slow authoroties, a global pandemic, a Russian war, and the economic knock on effects into every aspect of peoples lives;
It’s fair to say, all exploits that once were, have all been substituted for matters less-appealing.

For various unpleasant reasons, the blog has been on pause for many, many months.
I could write about all the misfortuntes and terrible curcumstances that have come about since 2018, but frankly, reliving it through a blog is just too frustrating and painful. I am also aware that I am by far NOT the worst affected by the events of the last couple of years. Droning on about them seems to be conceited, narcissistic and insensitive. I’m sure you all have better things to be doing.

This isn’t the end, but it’s definitely not what it was.
Something will appear here again at some point. Something that isn’t about the recent past, or the current toil.

Go grab a gin.

Where am I now?

After extensive work and tours through Southern Africa, most of my time is spent between Malawi and Europe.
Go Untamed Safaris was striding into top gear, but volatile poitics in 2019, Covid in 2020, the impacts of Russia vs the World as well as insesent corruption forced my hand.
The dust is now settling. Everything has changed. New chapters are about to be written.
