We just found out that our dear dear travel friend Lodie De Jager who’s has been one of my most inspirational people to me as a fellow overland traveller and friend had died on Christmas day 2014. I knew that the diagnosis was grave but the news is hard to take despite being a doctor and having to deal with these situations on a daily basis.
You were such an inspiration and the weeks we spent on our earlier crossing will stay with me forever. Go well my dear friend, see you on the other side! Nic Andela
I miss you loads!
