It is time to start my journey to South Africa on Saturday morning. I’m making a stop in Frankfurt before picking up Air France there for Cape Town. I tried to generate a graphic itinerary in Google Maps but ended up drawing the flights in. Google only offers graphics for flights between one start point and one end point. As for driving, it offered a fascinating road trip from Paris to Cape Town : 172 hrs of drive time, with a ferry crossing across the Mediterranean, following the Trans-Sahara Highway through Algeria and Niger, and then another ferry to get across the mighty Congo River at Brazzaville. Now that would be a trip to remember.
