Bom dia

Anyone been to or read about this....increbibly-lovely seeming country?

I hope one day to pass through Angola, or elsewhere a flight can be caught to these islands.

I heard about it originally from a guy in Brasil while we were drinking in front of the grocery store and swappin language practice...he works for National Geographic or somethin similar and was assigned a gig out here for wildlife photography.

A very thorough entry about it can be found here:

All i know about those places is that when we used to get Globo (Brazilian television channel) on cable in NYC, it did not have the regular Br TV commercials, but instead commercials for Brazilian restaurants, tax preparers, car dealerships etc. in the US, and commercials from Africa in Portuguese for like rice.

So they speak Portuguese, and there is food there, which is a start.

I’ve done a lot of thinking about this place, as well as Malabo. Seems tough for vagabond travel, but as long as you’re educated about all the red tape, and have all your vaccines, nothing stopping you from just ducking info the virgin rainforest and fucking around for a couple weeks.
From my research, the cheapest way to get there is via flight from Dahomey.

Yes, @Older Than Dirt it is being a lusofono nation and an island that originally attracted me, but it even sounds like as close as one may get to a true paradise based on what is written in the link I posted... if somehow financial problems can be avoided, one way or another. But more complex to spend enough time, with how tightly they seem to regulate the VISA, i guess thats how they keep it so nice.


@Tony Pro , nice one man, and yes, it is said that they will look for your yellow fever, I do not know about others, but you never know what you might catch, of course ... I got my free YF vax in Peru, I just had to talk to a couple of the right people and wait 3 hours. I too share the desire to know Equatorial Guinea...havent read into it in a long time though...recall it being sort of complicated.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $45.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    $45.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $45.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
I never did complete an update here, did I?
Well, I rubbertramped all across the country, back from Boston with a fellow moderator from R&V. We drove from there to Las Vegas over the course of a month! I saw 4 national parks, 30 states, and crossed over 6000+ miles. I came back to Los Angeles on June 15th, having achieved my goal of hitchhiking the entire country, and was on the road for over two months.
3 weeks of CDL training starting Monday. Im so excited. Living in semi is an upgrade from living in the van, especially since your getting paid for it! Hells yea!!!
A list of all the magic stores in the U.S. would be a sick feature on stp. Imagine you get off the train desperately in need of smokes and a slam, but you got ran off every corner... Dont worry stp knows exactly where you can get pall malls and some steelies with those foodies you picked up in the last town.
