Well the big day has finally arrived and I'm off to the Congo! I'm currently sat in the BA departure lounge at Terminal 5 after a crazy morning loading all the boxes into the van, driving to Heathrow and then begging BA to take them all without charging me any more money! Luckily I got the nicest woman on the check in desk and even though almost all my bags were overweight she didn't charge me a penny more!
Now it's time for me to board the flight so here are a few photos to keep you entertained until I arrive in DRC in a couple of days time. Fingers crossed my full day driving through Uganda tomorrow is enjoyable but relatively uneventful!
Will send more updates soon! :-)
