1968 / 69 African Honeymoon

Married in the north of England, Jack and Jude rebuilt a derelict VW Van then drove this rattletrap south through the Sahara, Central Africa, Congo, East Africa until finally reaching Johannesburg in South Africa. A journey taking 8 months.

This mega adventure has now been written up from dairy notes and is the first of sixteen short stories in our latest book, Reflections in a Sailor’s Eyes.
