Odd Ball Hotel

I stayed at the Beach Lodge for a lovely weekend in Swakopmund, in Namibia. It’s a wonderful oddball looking building which caught me by surprise the first time I saw it. It looks like a cross between a full-size hobbit house and a ship. It’s meant to shaped like the prow of a ship rising from the sands of the desert but I can’t help seeing similarities to Bilbo Baggins and friends’ houses in The Shire.

N Is For Namibia

My soul country, the moment I step onto Namibian soil I relax and feel at one with the earth. Maybe it’s the desert, or perhaps it’s the starkness of the land, but it’s a place that has a piece of my heart.
