Sleeping under the stars and hearing singing angels in the morning sounds like a fairy tale, right? No, it is Spitzkoppe. Spitzkoppe is in the center of a desert with enormous boulders. Surprisingly the best place to sleep outside in Spitzkoppe is on a boulder. The boulders are solid granite and hold the heat from the day's sun. Beau and I did wake up a little stiff but it was worth it. Falling asleep to sparkling stars and rising to a brilliant sun was amazing. Then we had the opportunity to visit Spitzkoppe's primary school first thing in the morning. The beautiful children blessed us with a few songs from their villages. We were all blown away by the angel voices of the students. The children and the teachers were very welcoming and gave an overview of their education at the school. Then we had some free time to talk with the kids. Digital cameras have definitely made a huge debut in Africa. All the children were very excited to have their pictures taken and to see themselves on the screen. Each kid would squeal and point at the picture. Then they all would erupt in laughter. It was such a joy to be around them.
- In 2008 we (Meggan and Beau) set out to see the world and start a business. Since then we have visited 48 countries and we’re just getting started. Travel and design go hand in hand. Whether we’re on the other side of the planet, or down the street we always find things to inspire us.
