Wow, This was an amazing and inspirational story..... absolutely incredible .... Not like everyone hasn't said all this before. Extremely well written and so entertaining. Thank you so much for taking the time to share. This is what it's all about right here.
It takes allot to just pack up and go off on an adventure. If only i could afford to just quit work and travel the planet.
what more can i say that hasnt been said before?
i stumbled onto this post last year while at work and spent the rest of the day reading, it wasnt avery productive day!
so well written and what a journey.
My remarks may need clarification. Park's narrative is regarded as one of the best adventure stories ever written. The distressing part is the continuing nature of central Africa. Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa is available for free, online at gutenberg.org
Got lost on the portal and somehow got to your trip report.
Excellent story - I worked for a mining company in DRC as an IT contractor for a short time, travelled around the globe and read a lot of books about DRC - the current 'vibe' and feeling in the DRC is very special and could not be better and more honestly described than in your report...:bowdown:
