Last post was stuck in Gqeberha because of a skate injury. Now have turned back due to restriction and travel budget, Lots of ventures happened between Gqerberha and the boarder so here’s a quick debrief.
Walk 67 with Jigga
After Gqeberha met Jigga in his home town of Kentononsea. His friends, family and the hole town were extremely welcoming and was an amazing time. Walked with him for the first few Ks leaving town though he left me behind for a couple more days of recovery. After that then caught upto him on wheels!
After Jigga recommended me to go checkout the Wild Coast. What a coast line! Extremely stoked he recommended it!
There were multiple crossings. This was definitely the largest and deepest. Interesting thing is earlier on the walk there was a group of elder woman who managed to cross it although didn’t get wet 🤔
Legendary friendly hostel in the bush in the middle of a tiny coasty town. Dog friendly and just down the road from the local shop!
From Morgans Bay managed to get a couple quick rides to Durban. Chilling a night by Kei River. After making it to Durban spent a night on the beach.
Aweh Africa Backpackers
Overlooking Durban is a homely backpackers that really creates a warm vibe. It is alsso doggo friendly and filled with amazing people who run it have their own story to tell.
Onwards to Jozi!
After getting a ride ~100kms out of Durban by one of the friendly regulars. Embarked on a weekend long hitch hiking trip to Johannesburg. Was the most amount of cars that stopped and at the same time the least amount of lifts obtained. Besides people stopping and then continuing. There were multiple occasions of people coming after and getting rides well before. Eventually the right rides came along and had a great time. Plus even making a new friend in Jozi who hosted us for a couole nights.
After hitting roadblocks on the adventure. Being the restrictions and finances. Returned to Cape Town to sell some Hammbags for the season. Will be hanging around town till sold aa few then may try and hitch a flight up the rest of Africa.
