A Long Way to Somaliland
There isn’t really an easy way to get to Somaliland. Wherever you are coming from, there is unlikely to be a direct flight. It will take me three flights followed by a 160 kilometre drive to get there (Amsterdam to London, London to Dubai, Dubai to Berbera, Berbera to Hargeisa). Including the layover time for my connections in London and Dubai, I will be travelling more than 24 hours – I leave Tuesday morning and I arrive Wednesday morning. All I can say is, they better have some damn good movies on those flights.
