Wednesday 26 Feb Sukuta Campsite, Banjul, The Gambia
I breakfast with one of the yoghurts that I bought yesterday. Nothing special, except that I paid (noticed long after I had left the shop) almost 6 euros per yoghurt! French import bio. I have a nice walk with Thimba to Serekunda, a village some 3 km, away. Look for – and…

some fellow overlanders and too many sleeping policemen

Fellow overlanders
On my last day at the Zebrabar Campsite I met three German students going all the way to Cape Town as part of their Masters thesis at the University of Karlsruhe. O.k., why not? They’re researching young African entrepreneurs, trying to find out what works and what doesn’t. Since they are mainly staying in the bigger towns and…

Yes, we have no beer.
When I leave Boujdour for Dakhla – a flat desert road of some 360 km. – a group of young men shout at me when I pass them, making drinking gestures with their hands. Do I have some alcohol for them? No, of course I haven’t. You can’t get it anywhere. Such hypocrisy. Morocco produces…

Reunion in Dakar, mangroves and fever nights

Dakar was as expected not to be our favourite African city. Getting on or off the peninsula took ages due to the traffic. We had heard about a restaurant (Sunugal) that allows camping in N’Gor, once a separate village and now one of the northern suburbs of Dakar. The area was a welcome retreat from the noise of the city…

Ύπνος στα όρθια στο πλοίο Ηγουμενίτσα

Ετοιμάζοντας το μηχανάκι για την “απόβαση” στην Ιταλία!

Στοπ στο σουπερμάρκετ για τα απαραίτητα ψώνια.

Στέργιος, Θάνος, Nico (θα μας φιλοξενήσει μερικές μέρες)

Ο γκατζετάκιας πλέον Θάνος στο υπνοδωμάτιο αγκαλιά με το laptop!

Η θέα απ’το σπίτι του Nico απλά φοβερή!

Budget update – Senegal

As promised, we have been tracking trip costs so that others have some idea of what may be incurred.  Of course, at the end of the day, it does all depend on your own choices.
The Central African Franc (CFA) is the currency in Senegal and other parts of west Africa.  It is apparently pegged to the Euro at 650…

Hotel SouSoum, Dakar
After the tranquillity of Djidjack, Dakar was bound to be a bit of a culture shock.  In fact, it wasn’t that bad.  Once we tuned in to its own unique rhythm, it was a likable city, and surprisingly affordable (if you knew where to look).
We were recommended a charming little hotel by Jean-Paul at Djidjack.  It…

New Year’s Day 2013
Public holiday pretty much everywhere … so we thought it was a good day to travel!  And surely leaving Mauritania should be quicker than the 10.5 hours it took to enter.
Nouakchott at 0730 on the-morning-after-the-night-before is deathly quiet … with small signs of a city coming to life.  Even with the relative quiet, it still…

Car troubles in Senegal

Day 66-70: St. Louis to DakarAfter the good reports Tomas’ friend Craig gave us about this place we simply had to stay at the Zebrabar. An amazing campsite run by Ursula, Martin and their two kids on the beach south of St. Louis. After a slow start in the morning we went to tackle the 48 hour problem. Ursula said…
