The Namib Desert is said to be the oldest in the world. Buried in its dunes lie sand grains that have been around since before the age of man. The pressure on these grains forces them to lock into each other, forming sand roses, thousands of years old. As the sands shift and the dunes dance their eternal dance, these roses come to the surface and lay bare in the mystical sand garden of adders and all manner of tiny desert dwelling creatures.
Right in the centre of the Namib Desert lies the town of Swakopmund. Its rich mixed history giving rise to a diverse mix of architectural styles; from old German Fachwerkhaus buildings to quaint coffee restaurants and stylish modern complexes, and among these lies Ocean House Guest House. With glimpses of the cold mysterious Atlantic from almost every window, the somniferous fresh salty air and the crashing waves’ siren song lulls you to sleep at night.

The world is not in your books and maps; it’s out there.
The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure.
Life movies pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around every once in a while, you could miss it.
The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.
It is never too late to be who you might have been.
One travels to run away from routine, that dreadful routine that kills all imagination and all our capacity for enthusiasm.
Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.
Oh, the places you’ll go.
All good things are wild and free.
Travel far enough, you meet yourself.
