I flew from Dubai to Johannesburg and spent a night there. 7 hours in the UAE and then 12 hours in South Africa were hardly in-depth cultural experiences, but it was still nice to have seen two new countries.
Then I flew to Saint Helena. We stopped to refuel in Namibia, a country I'd long dreamed of visiting, but we were not able to get off the plane. We took off for the next leg of the flight, and soon cleared the coast of Africa. Then it was a thousand miles of clear blue ocean to cover before Saint Helena.
The famous crosswinds seemed mild today. The landing was a little bit bumpy but nothing out of the ordinary. It was a warm sunny day, and I was on one of the most remote islands in the world.
