Johan Badenhorst Answers the Three Questions People Always Ask About His Adventures

Voetspore: Agulhas tot AlexandriëJohan Badenhorst, author of Voetspore: Agulhas tot Alexandrië and adventurer extraordinaire, hears the same questions whenever he speaks at events: What is the best vehicle to drive, where is he going next and can people join him on his adventures? In an article for Leisure Wheels he answers theses questions with thorough examples from his experiences.

“There is no room for passengers. All six people must also be able to account for themselves in the Voetspore kitchen — from cooking to washing up. You need to be an all-rounder — a team player with specific skills,” writes Badenhorst.

Over the past number of years, Johan Badenhorst has increasingly been invited to address people. The occasions are usually fundraisers for schools or churches, welfare organisations or environmental groups. People are keen to hear about the African continent. Most of them are nervous about travelling beyond our borders, but they all ask the same three questions…
Without fail, when I am a guest speaker at a function, I am asked the same type of question.

The main three are:

“What is the best vehicle to drive?”

“Where are you going next?” and

“Can I come, too?!”
