Windhoek

Windhoek through the lens

Husband and I decided to mission around our new hometown, the small city of Windhoek and see a few sights and act like tourists well we still new in town and can pull it off. There aren’t to many sights to see in the city, if you refer to tour directories the sights actually include the presidents house – which you are not allowed to photograph and a cemetery and that’s just weird to photograph.

Airport travel

We have arrived

Day 1 in the desert

So after 2 months of squatting at my mother’s house, as we had rented out our flat and put our furniture into storage – all this is due to a delay in the work permit for Namibia.

So after a weekend of rather stressful packing as we tried to condense 2 months worth of clothes and a few birthday presents into 23kg baggage allowance (obviously we had to leave stuff behind) we learnt at the airport this morning that one is allowed 2 bags of 23kg EACH per person on a flight to Windhoek – tip for future always phone the airline prior to confirm baggage allowance as this info was not well advertised.
