Πατήστε εδώ για να δείτε όλες τις φωτογραφίες Την Γκάνα την είχαμε βγάλει από το πλάνο μας, μιας και τι δεν είχαμε ακούσει από άλλους “ταξιδιώτες”! Και για την βίζα, αλλά και για το πέρασμα των συνόρων. Οι περισσότεροι είχαν καταλήξει στο συμπέρασμα πως δεν μπορείς να...

Uneasy Reading

After seven months of indecision, I finally bought an eReader for the trip. It was a reluctant purchase. I’ve always liked the physical trappings of reading: the scuffle of pages turning; the crackle of old glue when you open a cheap second-hand paperback; the...
Camelot of Africa

Camelot of Africa

Saturday 10th to Monday 12th November 2012. Debretabor, Gonder. It was quiet the next morning and lovely to catch up on a little sleep. We tried out the breakfast in the hotel as it’s just so cheap to eat out here. Luke was brave ordering the Lamb Dulet. He suffered...

Ghosts of Cape Coast past

Thursday 22nd to Friday 23rd March 2012 Cape Coast, Accra. The next morning we reluctantly packed up Bluebelle and left the palm-tree laden haven of the Green Turtle. We had a sneak peek at the nearby Desert Rose on the way back to Dixcove. It is another beautiful...

Monday 27th February to Friday 2nd March 2012 Ouagadougou. First thing the next morning we contacted Kevin from Nene Overland for help replacing our rear shocks. He was as baffled as we were about the damage. In 15 years of supplying and fitting Old Man Emu suspension...
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...
One last wild camp in Mali

One last wild camp in Mali

Wednesday 22nd Thursday 24th February 2012 Djenne, Bankass. Luke was up before sunrise to photograph the mosque before the Harmattan Haze settled in. I took a little longer to emerge from our rooftent, so met him in the square in time to see Djenne waking up. Talibe...

Ghana’s forts and beaches

Day 90,91: animal kingdom We have been complaining quite much about the West African roads, but Ghana appears to be in a league of their own. Ghana has been an example to most African countries; it’s democratic, they have a solid education and health system and...
