The last weeks have been busy. We have been very fortunate that we have been able  to give numerous presentations at schools, universities and companies, and hopefully, with our inspiration, these entities will now do more to care for the environment and reduce their plastic waste.
We now have an official departure date: 24th of April 2012. We went to…

The flight over from Nairobi (often referred to as Nairobbery) to Dubai was un-eventful. It was however, great to be in the land of civilization.

Dubai has been great. Very relaxing. The first thing we did was take the bike to KTM. I say the first thing we went the following day after arriving.

She’s gone and I miss her so. Yes she made me cross, infuriated me at times, but deep down I loved her in my own special way. Maybe I didn’t show her how much I cared, maybe I should have had more patience with her, maybe I shouldn’t have stared at hot Asian models right in front of her, but…

The lads at the A2B garage have been great though and are calling in the big guns, hopefully with an idea of why the car…

So the Land Rover caught fire today. What more is there so say? It’s all very upsetting and I had a little cry. Luckily we are staying with some lovely people, (thank you so much Ann and Mike), so we have somewhere to sleep whilst the car is looked at by the nice guys at the A2B garage in Dubai.…
