Dhow Safaris
The town is not up to much but the islands are very special. i went to Magaruque Island with Dolphin Dhows, I was not too impressed when i arrived at the office I think it was the owner who was screaming at the crew, he was quite unpleasant when we arrived at his office, however the trip was wonderful, but the snorkelling equipment was dirty and I wished I had brought my own. Another time I would have checked out what other companies had to offer, it was a disappointing experience. In all my years of travelling I have never met someone so rude as Junior of Dolphin Dhows.

Nice pics man. I wish you were less tired during the last leg of your trip. You sound real moody and grumpy against RSA and the place. Guess that gives new meaning to things when you say you are "beyond the end of my travel energy ".

Bribery & Corruption
I loved the following comment: "They apparently have some special arrangement with the police and parks authority that means they can camp on Bangue Island in defiance of the law." Being wilfully naive can always get you places, I suppose...

Thanks for the ride
Cheers John, I've read all of your blogs through and they have helped numb the pain of being in a dull IT/Banking job. Healthy bit of escapism. I enjoyed your style and honesty and some of your photo's are teriffic. p.s. If you were at GS I think our paths may have crossed briefly, your name certainly rings a bell anyway.

Life goes on
As someone who had a similar experience as you, I can really appreciate how you felt about your travel experience. Though my travels was not as extensive as yours, but as somebody who relocated to another country at the conclusion of my travels I know that the biggest impact that the entire experience had was it gave me ability to see things from perspectives that I would have never had in my fortress in NYC. Especially when I watch Lloyd struggle to explain our former firm's purpose in front of Congress ;> I hope this experience has enlightened you and will set a path in your life where you find fulfillment that was apparently missing before.

Oh My
I'm sad to see the end of your blog as I enjoyed following your trip! Funny enough, I find this post to be one of the best. You've summed up a lot thoughts that I have as well. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for sharing
Jabe, I've followed your blog on and off for nearly three years... thank you for sharing your stories and perspectives and photos. Most of us will never be able to do what you've done and it's awesome to be able to at least read about it! You are truly inspiring. All the best to you and your future!

Tremendous Blog
Congratulations Jabe on this amazing blog and welcome back to the UK. Just wanted to thank you for all the advice and inspiration you have given to me and fellow blog readers. I wish you all the best with your future career whatever it may be.

Thanks ...
... for all the comments, on this entry and previous ones. Kevin - there's a smiling photo in "First glimpses of a glorious past". Anu - a DCM is a Double Chocolate Milano, a biscuit produced by Pepperidge Farm that's one of my favourites. It's not a common abbreviation. I would've written quite differently if my intended target audience hadn't been my family and friends (many of whom would know what a DCM is) - one reason why I had to laugh at one of the other comments opining that writing style says something about the writer. Carolyn - I'll be sure to look you up if I'm ever in Memphis. A long US road trip is on the cards for some point in the future.

Interesting. Life is a journey...

But did you get a photo of you smiling?
Impressive work, this 4-year long collection of blog entries. I mostly skimmed (but also read in detail some of) your blogs. It's definitely interesting to see your observations on this summary post, and the wrap up of a rather epic trip. My only question (which I believe I asked on an earlier entry): Did you manage to get one photo of yourself from the trip with a smile? :)
