Correct. I do all planning, maps, days, routes, car, accessories, communications…every year is more experience…so many details...is great fun planning for weeks and months…bit by bit...all possible info collection using mainly internet...once a year, Christmas time, in hottest time in Africa, I made big trip , few thousand km. and make average of 2000-3000 photos...On the trip like this, I meet same interesting people and have lot challenges from nature – flooded roads, desert storms … What we calling parks in Africa, are sometimes huge areas with no communication, roads, supply or any conventional help. Africa is so beautiful, and there is so many places where I still want to go...
