We’re currently in Swakopmund, Namibia, which sits right on the Atlantic Ocean. The last ocean we saw was the Indian Ocean off the coast of Tanzania, so that means we’ve literally driven across the whole continent (east to west) of Africa!
We’re here for a few days as the town is next to the Namib desert and a ton of sand dunes. There were numerous activities we could do, and myself and Lucy (a great girl from Scotland), decided to go on a “fat tire” bike tour.
Fat tire bikes are used a lot for mountain biking, and the wide tires are great for tough conditions – especially sand.
The way the wind forms the dunes, one side is more gradual, while the back side is a 34 degree angle. We went down the back side, which was a little scary! At least if you fell (neither of us did), you would land on the sand.
