Μιας και ακόμα δεν έχω συνέλθει από τις 2 βδομάδες μέσα στα φορτηγά και την άμμο (4 συνολικά από Κινσάσα!), κι επειδή βλέπω πως οι μέρες περνάνε σαν 1000αρα βέσπα εδώ στο Λουμπουμπάσι με τους τρελοέλληνες που έχω μπλέξει (όχι πως…

Ο Ρουβάς (δείτε στο 05:49 γιατί) επισκέπτεται το Κονγκό, όπως πάντα καβάλα στην αγαπημένη του Vespa! Το βίντεο αυτό το αφιερώνω στην Ελληνική Κοινότητα στο Λουμπουμπάσι για την απίστευτη βοήθειά της, τη φιλοξενία της και γενικά την χαρά και τον…

Πατήστε εδώ για να δείτε όλες τις φωτογραφίες! Από που να ξεκινήσω για το Καμερούν; Από το πρόβλημα στο βεσπάκι; Από τις ξέγνοιαστες μέρες στο μοναστήρι στη Yaounde; Από τον πανέμορφο βορρά με τους ολοκαίνουργιους δρόμους (ο πεινασμένος καρβέλια ονειρεύεται)…

The Fouta Djalon Mountains After all the carnival festivities, which culminated in the big parade yesterday, the city is very quiet early in the morning at 7.30. I’m heading for the Fouta Djalon mountains, together with my German friends Max,…

HI Guys, No route today unless you want a map from the bar to my room to the pool. I managed the monumental task of getting my bike around a country. Yes it is a cause for celebration tonight, where…

Climbing Mt Cameroon

We quickly made our way north in Cameroon to Yaoundé, perhaps one of the most chaotic cities in Africa. The traffic is absolutely crazy and the people very loud. Cameroon is also the most corrupt country we visited, meaning that we often…

  The road to Gabon from Congo is very rough. A road is being contructed to connect the two countries, and the huge trucks used in the work are leaving deep trenches in the sand. These trenches were deep enough…

They came, they saw, they were conquered!

  Monday 28th to Wednesday 30th May 2012. Lekoni Canyon. Rolling sandy green hills followed us out of Franceville. We had to get our passports and carnet stamped out of Gabon, even though we didn’t’ plan to enter the Congo…

Saturday 26th to Monday 28th May 2012. Lope, Franceville. As soon as we woke the next morning we wrapped in our towels and padded down to the creek for a last dip in the refreshing gurgle. It felt such a…

Friday 25th May 2012. Libreville. In Libreville we had a little time to kill before returning to the DRC embassy at 1pm so we stopped at the huge Geant Cekado Supermarket to stock up on supplies. We were all mesmerised…

Wednesday 23rd to Thursday 24th May 2012. Lambarene. The next morning Luke and I woke to the most peculiar rocking of the car. We couldn’t see anything outside the windows and couldn’t hear Dad or Dan anywhere nearby. We started to…

Sweet, sweet Gabon, how we loved your roads: smooth, new and awesome! Gabon was one huge surprise for us. Reading other travellers accounts of this place did not paint it in a favourable light. Unfriendly people, especially if you couldn’t…

Cameroon

The roads entering Cameroon, if you can call them that, were an absolute mess. The 30km of rutted mud tracks from Ekong to Etu took us 3 hours and this was the dry season. It would have been completely impassable…
