You see Colombian police everywhere on the side of the road. Every couple of long driving days we end up being pulled over. Normally they ask us where we’re going and where we are from. Sometimes they ask us for documents, but many times they just ask how we’re doing, shake our hands, and let […]
“Things won’t get any worse than here, other parts of Cuba will be much more enjoyable.” “Don’t say that, you’ll jinx it” Jinx it we did. That night we discovered Gregory. Gregory was our add-on traveller. A frighteningly lumpy-lump where a lump should not be. With a very risky family history of cancer and one family […]
This years trip to the Begonia started a little earlier, Fiona and I set of after lunchtime on Wednesday, the morning being spent trying to earn some beer vouchers, slaving away for our meagre pittance. The other advantage of leaving after 12 was that the heavy showers started so within 5 miles we no longer […]

This is Mike…We drove up and down three separate highland valleys today between Popayan and Pasto, Colombia. This is a preview of what kind of roads are in store for us further down the continent. Using lower gears here is super important because bra…
This is Mike…We stopped in Popayan, “The white city”, as a rest point from Filandia to ultimately, Ecuador. The old town had a cool vibe about it and true to the name was a white colonial beauty. The only complaint we had was the utilitarian concrete…
This is Mike…Saying goodbye is never easy but is especially hard when it is family. Dani and Daisy left on Monday morning for Medellin. I dropped them off at the bus terminal and when I returned driving down our driveway it felt so empty and lonely. …
After a restful night we woke up to just a tiny drizzle. Today we will finally make it to Lom, but then we will continue on to Molde. This route takes in two famous switchback routes (Geiranger and Trollsteigen).The first … Continue reading →
Colombie – Saison 1
“Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.” – Terry Pratchett.
In DeNile: There once was a princess named Jinx, Who was asked what she thought of the Sphinx. She replied with a smile, “That old fraud by the Nile? I personally think that she stinks!”
Some detail here hopefully of some assistance to those thinking of using the eastern route. I urge you not to have any hesitation in using this interesting route. It gave us great satisfaction to have completed it. It is really not as daring as it has been reputed to be! ROUTE. KVNP – Kapedo – […]
”Adventure is worthwhile”. – Aesop.
Today we were faced with a bit of a conundrum. As you probably know by now, the East African parks run on a 24hr clock, a day’s entrance fee covers the next 24 hrs. We had entered at 16H00 and we entitled to stay in the park until then. The problem was that there was […]
We established that the best months for game viewing in the KVNP are the dry months from Feb to April, but be aware that the park can be relatively crowded around Easter. The rains in the north of Uganda are from about May to early September, different…
Although many will enter the park from Kenya when journeying from north to south, I will post the directions in detail as they may then want to travel onto Murchison FNP. ROUTE. Paraa MFNP – Wankwar Gate MFNP – Purongo village – Anaka – Gulu – turn sharply right (east) a few km before Kitgum […]
“Always do the things you are afraid to do, next time it will be easier”.
“Serendipity was my tour guide, assisted by caprice”. So we spent 2 nights in all on the north bank in this pleasant enough campsite and had it all to ourselves. We set up camp as close to the Nile as possible in a fairly large, level, cleared area with a campfire area but minimal shade. […]
Gualeguaychu, campsite «Costa Alegre»: A free night in a closed – we were off season – campsite (Costa Alegre). There was electricity and running water. No internet. (Apr ’15) gps: -33.00161, -58.49547 Concordia, municipal sport center: Another free night in the municipal sport center. We had our own room, electricity, drinking water, clean toilets with hot […]
