My next adventure was to travel overland across East Africa. The thought daunted me but there I was flying into Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A dala dala, tuk tuk, boda boda, matatu, scooter and sidecar, ferry & rental car later and I’d made it all the way down to South Africa! On route, I stopped off in Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia & Zimbabwe. I mostly travelled alone but I met so many incredible people along the way and kept meeting up with As Seen From The Sidecar on route too.
...and lastly, a quick stop in Canada before flying home to the UK for a good cup of tea.
Throughout the trip, I was seeking out talented artisans and curating a beautiful collection to share with you back home. Of course, it wasn’t always this plain sailing… keep your eyes peeled to find out what mishaps and adventures I encountered along the way. To find why we’re named Higgler, visit ‘Our Jamaican Roots’
