The Covid Pandemic

Since March 2019 the Covid-19 pandemic has been raging across all the countries of the world, severely restricting free travel. For some time, South Africa was placed under complete lockdown and we were not able to travel at all. Gradually travel restrictions were lifted but the possibility of being infected by the virus was still very much a reality.

Normally, my travels require that I stay in campsites where I would usually have to share facilities with other travellers, increasing the risk of exposure to the virus. As a result, I’ve had to drastically cut down my travels and restrict my movement. For now, the journey has sadly come to an end.

On 5 May 2021 I arrived in Orkney where I’ve kindly been offered a place to stay on the banks of the Vaal River. Five days later, on May 10th I reached the milestone of 1 000 days since the trip began. I thought this would be a good point at which to close the chapter on this incredible journey that I’ve been on.
