Cameroon

Leaving Nigeria and moving onto Cameroon was an interesting morning.. Arriving at the first immigration check point Charles, Mwandy and Rob were informed that our visas had expired previously and we were illegally in the country. The officer told us to carry on...
Burkina Faso to Togo

Burkina Faso to Togo

The border was once again an easy affair after figuring out what we needed to do and where we needed to go. We were told we had come through the wrong entrance, so the police officer directed to the correct building. An orange large building with zero signs. Very...
Southern Burkina and Togo

Southern Burkina and Togo

After our change of plan we decided to travel to Nazinga national park in the hope to see elephants. Driving there took a long time, mainly, as I wrote in the last blog, due to police checks. They were fine every time they stopped us, chatting about what had...

Burkina Faso

The alarm went off at 5am, but as we had planned an awesome trip, there was none of that “Agh… 5minutes longer” feeling you’d have when the alarm would go on Monday morning ready for a new week at work. This was a “YAY…...
Out of Mali and into Burkina Faso

Out of Mali and into Burkina Faso

‘ Spending time at the Sleeping Camel had been great, meeting up with the Oasis Overland truck had been good fun. We were able to chat to others about their experiences, and were taken to a little food stall by the road by Jacob and Yuki .. It was such good...
Burkina Faso, the upright people

Burkina Faso, the upright people

Als we Mali uitrijden is er een aantal kilometers niemandsland voor we in Burkina Faso aankomen. Eerst gaan we langs de politie en de douane. Ook hier is alles snel geregeld, dus we kunnen zo weer verder. Lekker hoor als iedereen gewoon z’n werk doet. De natuur lijkt...
Besuch aus Vlotho

Besuch aus Vlotho

Unser Besuch im Dorf Loumbila steht an und wir sind schon etwas aufgeregt. OK, worum geht es hier? Das müssen wir euch erstmal erklären. Wir haben uns vor unserer Reise tüchtig Gedanken gemacht, ob wir unterwegs etwas “Gutes” tun wollen oder ob diese Reise...
Strafzettel

Strafzettel

Der Verkehr in und um den Städten ist der schlimmste, und es ist jedensmal sehr anstrengend wenn du da durch muss. Als wir Ouagadougou verlassen erwischt es mich…wer denkt denn schon daran, dass in Afrika geblitzt wird. Ich fahre, und Pat und ich sind am...

Leute Leute ich sag euch, das waren Tage in Ouagadougou. Wir haben Pat ( den australischen Motorradfahrer ) wieder getroffen und eigentlich wollte er uns am Montag (17.8.15) nur zum Büro für Visa Angelegenheiten begleiten, da er noch auf sei Visum für Ghana gewartet...

5 Minuten Tankstelle in Ouagadougou

TV-Abend in Burkina Faso, es gibt viel zu entdecken… Patrick, Andreas und ich haben uns mal für eine halbe Stunde vors Hotel gesetzt und in aller Ruhe zugeschaut was da so passiert. Eigentlich nur um den Moskitos zu entkommen, denn die haben komischerweise keine...

Ramble on, Peru

After the warm reception of Colombia and then the warmer embrace of Ecuador we are finding Peru a bit troubling.  We are having a hard time coming to grips with Peru and its identity.  For example, we find,  at times, ourselves thinking we are in...

Shocking…

Saturday 18th to Sunday 19th August 2012. Serowe, Francistown. We left the sanctuary and started towards Francistown. The road quickly changed from tar to gravel, that was badly corrugated in parts. Though it was unpleasant, it was hardly a bad road compared to what...

Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th March 2012 Dedougou. Saturday morning turned out to be a hot one, so after fitting the shocks, some cleaning and organising of Bluebelle, we dived into the OK Inn pool for a last swim. We had heard there was an international mask festival...
Hot hot hot!

Hot hot hot!

Saturday 25th February 2012 Tiebele. Saturday morning we decided to drive south and explore a little. It was so hot. The thick soupy air blew in the windows as we drove, doing little to cool us down. First stop was Tiebele, a village several hours south of...

OK Inn Burkina!

Thursday 24th to Friday 25th February 2012 Ougadougou. The next morning we rejoined the pink dusty road to cross into Burkina Faso. The border posts on both sides were spread out, but easy to find as they were all along the same road. At Koro the Malian officals were...

Hazy daze

Monday 6th to Tuesday 7th February 2012. Bamako. The next morning we set off early to reach Bamako. After such short distances in Senegal and The Gambia we were no longer used to these long stretches of driving. The temperature had cooled and later in the day we even...
