"Jill and I arrived in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, this morning at 5:30 a.m. in time to watch the sunrise over the African expanse. Within 10 minutes of our drive to the hotel Manni, our host, pointed to a male baboon standing on an over pass (I think he was hitch hiking but without an opposable thumb, wasn't having much luck).

After a short rest, we were the guests of honour at a luncheon with the corporate sponsors for our trip, some local media, and some fellow musicians from a South African band called The Professors. 

The attached pic is from today's paper. We are already blown away by the landscape, the people and the hospitality. This going to be an awesome trip. 

Tomorrow we fly to Gondwana's dunes lodge for sight seeing, a campfire singalong and, when it's time for sleep, we have the option to roll out our bed under the open desert sky. Yup, I'll doing that! 

Stay tuned!"

Snow Oryx at Klein-Aus Vista Lodge 

Saturday morning the temperature dropped to -2 degrees. With a windchill it went down to -7.5 degrees. There was white frost all over the surface & the Albino Oryx just blended in. Image by Piet Swiegers

Hi Everyone. 

I'm a week away from embarking on maybe one of the coolest trips I've ever taken.  I'm heading to Namibia, Africa, for the first time to support an amazing tourism company called Gondwana.  They say Namibia has all of Africa in it and The Gondwana Collection own 14 lodges around this diverse country that  share a unique aspect of the African geography.

I'll be traveling to three of these lodges and speaking in the capital city of Windhoek to support Gondwana and their amazing Customer Service Training Academy. I love that they are committed to giving every tourist who visits with them a world class experience and honoured they asked me to come there to help in that.

I'll be giving updates along the way so keep an eye out for that and perhaps think about coming back with me next year as part of a tour group. I have a feeling I'm going to feel at home there. I already know I appreciate their taste in music (see if you can pick out the melody in this music video made by their employees).

 I'm stoked. Stay tuned for more.

Cheers,
