We Are Still Alive, and We Are Doing Fine! / Ja, wir leben noch, und es geht uns gut!

Dear EarthLoversOnTour-friends, we are still alive, and we are doing fine! We have even finished our ‘Cape Town to Casablanca Tour’ already – well, after 13 months 😉. At present we are back in South Africa. Only by plane and just for a while, yet we are enjoying...
The Countdown

The Countdown

For a multitude of reasons, none of which are even remotely tethered to a desire to stop travelling or depart from our new life on the road, we’d made the decision a couple of months ago to head back to Australia! Sadly South America will have to wait a little longer…...
Overlanding Budget // Morocco

Overlanding Budget // Morocco

We spent an incredible three months in Morocco, taking in the sights and sounds of northern Africa. Way back in Scotland, we’d arranged a housesit for some of our time in Morocco. Situated in Essaouira, a sweet little town on the coast directly east of...

Cairo and Out

Cairo and Out

Once Bubbles arrangements were sorted it was time for me to head through to Cairo for a day of sight-seeing before jet-setting back home to South Africa. At this point, I finalized a decision I had been toying with for a while. I would meet up with Bubbles in RSA and...

Crossing to Khartoum

Crossing to Khartoum

Previous border crossings had taken some finesse and patience. It seems those crossings were just the warm up for Sudan. We arrived at 7AM and had to fend of money changers and beggars on the Ethiopian side for two hours until Ethiopian customs showed up for work...
Forenji! Forenji!

Forenji! Forenji!

After some cultural enrichment at Lalibela, Shea and I headed toward the Sudan border. We’d heard news of riots in Northern Ethiopia but hadn’t thought much of it. After all, we are young enough to still be invincible. The view from Lalibela. Bubbles on the way down....

Vacation from Vacation

The plan was simple. A short drive from Cape Town to Cairo with a small break in the middle to attend a few weddings back home in America. Well, due to some visa complications with the UAE, Sudan, Kenya and Ethiopia I basically flew around the world at least once...
Farewell to Africa …

Farewell to Africa …

It is just one more night in Africa, only a couple of hours, and we will board a plane and be homeward bound. This time, it will take us only a few hours to cover the distance between South Africa and Germany … something that on-road in our Land Rover took us a...

Expense Report: Morocco

The RTW trip we are currently on can be done for less money but we are choosing to take the middle road. We offer these expense reports as a baseline for others to plan with. We spent a total of $2,176.77 on living expenses and $3,557.62 or one-time expenses. We spent...
