Sounds great. Would love to see how it goes. Will u also be having a dog for security?
Nope wont be having a dog.
When i did a lot of solo travelling over the years i used to hahve an 18 year old miniature poodle who had glaucoma and a bad attitude with no teeth. But he loved travelling. I do have a cat that we may cart around with us.
Havent seen a need for a dog. And I just feel that in this country having a dog brings more probems than soltions.
I have done an entire article on safety for solo women travellers and will post them here.
Actually its a range of articles. I think i am just going to start getting solo South African women out there and on the road. Not that I am anti men or anything. I just feel that the excuses that are made are invalid. I was in more dangerous situations in my own house and horrible things happened to me in a house.
In all my travels = and i have done Joburg to Saldanha Bay (23 hours) in a tata indica.
I have also done 3700 Km in 6 days around the karoo in a corsa lite. So yep. I have done it and not once have I felt unsafe. But my article says it all and I will post as soon as I can.
My message to solo female SOUTH AFRICAN nomads is JUST DO IT.
Start small with local getaways and then as you gain confidence = go further = eventually you will be throwing a doos of wyn in your boot with some clean broekies and disappearing for 2 weeks.
