Just as I try to slow my travels down, I have possibly two of the craziest journeys coming up in May and June 2016. In May, I am off to Africa on a crazy challenge with MoneySupermarket.com. They are sending me to a secret location (which I’ll reveal on the 5th May 2016) without ANY LUGGAGE. It’s part of the #MSMLostLuggage challenge, you can read about the lost luggage challenge here.
Off to Africa with Money Supermarket.com
I’ll be heading to Gatwick Airport in London where the Yotel Compact Hotel is and I will be travelling without my much loved Osprey Aether Rucksack and without my 30 country deep Mindshift Gear hand luggage backpack. I will only have the clothes I’m wearing, pen and paper, my passport, my wallet and a clever phone (so no laptop!). I’ll probably bring my travelling Northern Ireland flag too but that will be it. It’s going to be an odd and crazy 10 days in Africa!
In the past fellow travel bloggers like Becki Enright (Borders of Adventure) and Kash Battacharya (Budget Traveller) have been on this challenge before – now it’s my turn! I’m looking forward to my fourth trip to Africa, and my seventh country on this huge continent, my least travelled part of the world.
My last few times and previous articles from Africa:
Here are five clues to the location of the country I’m heading to:
1.They have qualified for the FIFA World Cup once before.
2.I have never been to this country before (you can view my travel destinations here).
3.A singer from this country had a UK number one single in the mid-1990s.
4.The country borders five other African countries.
5.This country has a whopping 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites!
I’ll reveal the country and city tonight. I can’t wait! #MSMLostLuggage
