I’ve finally arrived in Uganda and I’m really happy to be here, but it has required another very long travelling day – one of the hazards of travel I guess! Yesterday after travelling to London I checked into the Travelodge near Heathrow which was the hotel I stayed at before […]
Charlie : Kigali Airport, Rwanda
Charlie is currently relaxing on board a Brussels Airlines aircraft at Kigali Airport, Rwanda, during a stopover on the way to Uganda. Unfortunately we will not be visiting Rwanda on this trip, and will not even be leaving the aircraft while they clean it and change some passengers, which is […]
I’m off to Uganda again!
