We all have those days when our leave days have been marked down for a while and we have muttered a holiday plan to our family or friends a couple of times – a few friends seem to be interested in joining too. With so many choices for accommodation and activities in Namibia, Gondwana Collection became your pick. Well don’t we all get excited when our calendar marked holiday date finally draws closer? In honour of that soon-to-come Namibian holiday here are a few ‘Travel Memes’ that resemble it’s almost vacation time:
