On the Way to Algeria – Stuck in Customs

On the Way to Algeria

They seem to have a lot of people that complain about everything under the sun in the comments, but that didn’t stop me from doing a full analysis of the new bag that was just released on Kickstarter.

You have no idea where camels really come from

Well, maybe you do… but I found this to be a complete surprise! It also reminds me that I should watch more TED talks!

Daily Photo – On the Way to Algeria

When I was in Morocco, I decided I needed to get way out of town into the Sahara desert to really lean into it. I rode a camel and everything. Believe me, riding a camel is not fun at all. I thought it would be a bit like riding a horse, but it definitely wasn’t. I’ve now ridden on about five different camels in various countries (Morocco, Egypt, Oman), and I can tell you every experience was negative. I tried to have a good attitude about it and embrace the romance and adventure of it, but not even my positivity could overcome a continually negative experience. Just over those dunes there in the distance was Algeria. I almost crossed over, but my guides there warned me it was a bit dangerous.
