There isn’t much of a road in northern Kenya. A badly potholed dirt track leads from Isiolo to the Ethiopian border, a journey of only about 100 miles that takes about two days. With few transportation options along this road, the local population travels in cattle trucks, which run through the night from the border to Isiolo where a proper bus ticket can be purchased. We were so thankful when we saw this cattle truck that we were in our friend’s car. Although you can pay more to sit in the cab, squished between ten of your closest friends, the experience can not be called pleasant. It’s amazing we didn’t see anyone jolted out of the back of the truck from a pot hole. If you’ve ever read Paul Theroux’s Dark Star Safari you know exactly what I’m talking about.
I'm an adventurer and a fun loving spirit. I'll do almost anything once for the experience, well within reason. I love mountain biking, hiking and swimming. I compete in adventure races, but I'm also a complete nerd and love to read. I try to live my life without regrets, in the words of Ferris Bueller, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. "
