Video: The Time I went to Sossusvlei, Namibia

My arrival in Namibia was almost Euphoric.  When I had arrived in Zambia I felt like the hard stuff was over.  However, when I got to Namibia I felt like I had made it.  After crossing the heart of Namibia in just 4 days, I arrived at De la Mer Hotel in Swakpomund and met up with a tour group from a company called Chameleon Backpackers and Safaris.  I spent the next 8 days with them as I explored parts of Namibia like the incredible Sossusvlei region. Now, anyone that knows me understands that Sossusvlei was number one on my bucket list before visiting.  It was that one place in Africa that was really calling me.  I love deserts, I love sand dunes, and I love wide open spaces where my eyes can build upon my mind’s imagination.  Namibia in general is like that, but Sossusvlei, more specifically, has been bending at the imagination of people for decades now.  Though touristy, I’m amazed by how few the tourists crowds still are.  For one of the world’s top 10 natural landscapes, the crowds are fairly sparse. Anyways, I hope you like the video, and the video series in general.  The next episode is again from Namibia as I explore the wildlife of Etosha National Park.  Stay tuned for that.
