Robin Barrett has just completed a 4, 400km cycle across Africa. He began his journey earlier this month at Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, passing through Malawi and Zambia before reaching Walvis Bay, in the West Coast.
‘I was a teacher for 30 years, and eventually started my own window-cleaning business. It was while I was cleaning windows that I heard the story of Fran Sandham who walked from Walvis Bay to Dar es Salaam, which is what inspired me to also go on my own adventure’
Robin had visited every continent, apart from Africa, and so his expedition brought an opportunity to see something completely new.
This was his longest adventure to date and his experience is sure to stay with him for some time. He encourages those who embark on similar adventures to avoid heavy tourist destinations, and instead stick to the country.
