This is a view from Kande Beach, our new home for three days. We made this stop on Lake Malawi as it is supposedly a good place for people to do a little fresh water diving. It’s also a place to stop and relax. One thing I’ve seen on this trip is that an overland trip is much different than the normal type of traveling that I do. Usually, I pick a location based on the significant things to see in the area. Generally, I try to find the world’s most significant tourist attractions and go see them. This trip is something of an adventure for me. There aren’t a lot of "The World’s Top Tourist Attractions" on the overland trip I’m taking, although there are a few. This type of trip is about doing a 3,000 mile truck camping trip through Eastern and Southern Africa with a group of 15-20 other people. This trip really isn’t tourism in the traditional sense, something I didn’t think through as well as I should have when I purchased the trip. Yes, I’ve gone on group tours before, but we always stayed on a hostel or hotel not in a tent, and our goals were to see the traditional tourist sites. It wasn’t a tour of the campgrounds of Africa and 3,000 miles in the back of truck with a large group of people.
