Flirting with Africa – Morocco

Flirting with Africa – Morocco

The Sahara desert is not always hot, dry yes, but throughout the winter and spring it can be cool and sometimes comfortable. We are in a raging furnace from 11am until the sunsets because, unfortunately, we are here in the beginning of summer and are the proverbial...

This is our experience crossing the Spain-Morocco border on Tuesday, 17 May 2016. Our party consisted of two people and two motorcycles. We got a lot of information prior to entering from the Morocco Knowledge Base and from Horizons Unlimted. Border Name: Tangier MED...

We camped at a hotel for our last night in Senegal, it was called relais de Kedogou in a town about an hour from the boarder. It was a nice place with a pool and another spectacular view of the River Gambia. We got up and left by 7am on the Saturday and were at the...
Mauitanië, het blijft nog zanderig

Mauitanië, het blijft nog zanderig

NB Helaas werkt het programma Windows Live Writer niet meer, dus we hebben wat moeten improviseren met deze post. Het kan zijn dat het er daardoor wat anders uitziet. We hopen dat het gauw opgelost is. Als we de poort bij de grens van de Westelijke Sahara uitrijden,...
The Desert, Morocco

The Desert, Morocco

This would be our fifth week since leaving the UK. Time really has flown by and it certainly doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. The days and nights go so quickly, but I suppose it’s like the saying goes, ‘time flies when you are having...
Zagora, Morocco

Zagora, Morocco

We packed up camp, with a final offer of espresso’s for the road from our French friends across the way before we left. As always wishing us bon voyage with safe and happy travels. They were so hospitable and we left feeling humbled by their...
مرحبا بكم في المغرب

مرحبا بكم في المغرب

Als het Marokkaanse land in zicht komt, hangt de bootsman de Marokkaanse vlag op de boot. Na 45 minuten varen komen we aan in Marokko, en wel in Tanger. We moeten wachten tot de andere auto’s van boord zijn en dan kunnen wij ook van de boot af. Achteruit dan wel, want...
Marrakech

Marrakech

We left Casablanca ready to head off inland to Marrakech hoping that we would find a Campsite that would offer hot showers, and wifi. We had looked on the map before we left and were pleased to see there would be a number of options, so we could be a little picky....
Morocco

Morocco

Our European counterparts may not have as easy access to unpopulated lands as the Australian local, but WOW! – With Morocco just over that narrow gap of sea between continents, they do have outstanding opportunities to test their cultural comfort zone! A few hours...

Tanger to Chefchaouen(Morocco)

Our trip on the ferry towards Morocco left us with a feeling of the unexpected as we said our goodbyes to what we know as civilisation. We waited on the boat for about an hour and a half before we departed Terifa, Spain. The storm was still on tow and the hour long...
Spain to Morocco

Spain to Morocco

After an amazing night out with Kevin and Heike we got up in the morning feeling a little worse for wear. We packed up at a slow pace and said goodbye to the residents in the camp site. They seem to spend winters in Spain and then head back home for the summer. All...
Its all starting to come together!

Its all starting to come together!

Well it certainly has been an exciting past couple of weeks. Charles and Myself had to go through the final step before receiving our British passports; attending the interview which proves our identity. They asked all sorts of unusual questions which was quite...

So die erste “richtige” Grenze steht unmittelbar bevor und insbesondere ich bin schon etwas aufgeregt. Heute haben wir nochmal alles vorbereitet und sind den Papierkram durch gegangen. Wir hoffen also das wir tippi toppi vorbereitet sind :-) Ein kleiner...

Here. We. Go…

We have spent many hours, first dreaming, then planning, and now, finally, making things happen.  We are going to drive through Africa!  We are not the only ones who have made this trek, and for that we are grateful.  Their experiences have helped us to form a plan...
