Today I met Mr Riaan Manser in a freezer. We had a long chat. He's living in a freezer for a few days, to practice for his trip around Iceland. Truly one of the "ultimate modern day adventurers". My hero and proudly South African. An inspiration to all. Check http://www.riaanmanser.com/
He now has his own copy of Make Track.
Another 22year old University student/volunteer arrives in Africa
from Europe and did not pack a raincoat.
A raincoat is on every travel pack-list in the world.
-They thought it never rains in South Africa.
A good rain jacket is important not only for the rain,
but also for warmth and as wind breaker. Helpful so you don't get sick.
We work in the rain.
Remember the motto - 'Be prepared'
Check 'what to pack' list's in any good travel guide or travel website
