From the Southern Tip of Africa to the Remote Island of St. Helena

Today me and my fellow Bosnian flying pal @AmarKoric11 decided to fly from South Africa’s second largest city of Cape Town to one of the world’s most remote islands: Saint Helena. Our route took us up the coast of South Africa, through the rugged Skeleton coast of Namibia with a brief stop in the port town of Walvis Bay before continuing across the South Atlantic to a windswept and sun-kissed Saint Helena.
