While Instagram had handily prepared us for many of the stunning landscapes we saw on our mini Namibian road trip, we weren’t expecting to be so taken by the tiny town of Solitaire. Well. They claim it’s a town, but much like the “village” we drove through that consisted of a windmill, sheep farm and minuscule police HQ, it’s more like a strategically located gas station with some unexpected quirks.
When you only have 25 days of annual leave for adventures, deciding on where to head for your next trip when you have ambitions of exploring as many countries as possible can be a challenge. Even harder in our experience when you’ve had a full year off to travel as you please and need to get used to using as few week days as possible to travel as much as you can!
