At this stage we would like to share some statistics of the countries we visited.
Starting with Sudan. It was a pleasure to fill the vehicle with Petrol. At R4.20 per liter it reminded us of South Africa 12 years ago. Petrol stations are everywhere but power cuts and availability is a problem. The exchange rate was 7.1 Sudanese Pound…

For the best part of a year I have been working on a way to create an interactive map that would help bring my journey to life.
I wanted a way to combine my actual route map (made from satellite tracking points every 10 minutes on the road for over 6 months and counting), my blogs (to date this is 106th published post with just…

After several long days of carting boxes and furniture down thirty-one floors, driving them across three cities, and struggling to wedge everything into our storage unit, we are officially out of our apartment and mere hours away from departure. Arranging our exodus from the apartment left me in awe of those who have moved the contents of entire houses. I…

Hi All,

My apologies if the following 3 part series on China comes across as petty and spiteful in places. It was a tough section of the trip. Much tougher than I’d anticipated. As a result, it’s only since I’ve left China that I’ve been able to write the story, as I have started to physically, and mentally recover from the trauma…

It’s time for a round-up of the last few weeks… you may have noticed, there hasn’t been an awful lot of cycling. I had great plans, but sometimes they don’t quite work out the way you expected.
The plan. Get to Ulaanbaatar quickly to extend my Mongolian visa and get visa for Kazakhstan for onward travel. Speak to guides about…

Just a two hour drive from the South Bay there is an incredibly fertile valley that produces some of the finest wines imaginable. Breathtaking views abound at every turn from tall mountains to rolling hills covered with vineyards year round. Wineries of every price point dot the landscape as far as you can see. In this valley you can go…

“How do geese know when to fly to the sun?  Who tells them the seasons?  How do we, humans, know when it is time to move on?  As with the migrant birds, so surely with us, there is a voice within, if only we would listen to it, that tells us so certainly when to go forth into the unknown.”…

Visas – What do you need know before you drive to China?

Since last year I’ve been researching the visa requirements. I thought I’d describe the requirements for the outward leg of my journey.
Ground work
The research pointed to doing it a number of ways. Get the visas before I left or on the road. As I have an ambitious plan to see as many countries as possible allied to a tight…

After 20 months of planning and preparing the trip the time has arrived to begin.

The last two months! Getting stressed over the last things that need to be done, but also getting excited over almost leaving. We can see the finish line of the preparation stage and can start to look forward to setting off.

In exactly ten weeks from today we will put Panda on a ship to Canada. 10 Days later we will hop on a plane to bring us there. In the mean time we will do our last preparations. Last weekend I prepared one big TO DO list so that we finally have everything in one list and can start crossing…

We are now in the last 13 weeks of preparations for our epic road trip. So much is happening every week that I will start writing weekly updates from now on. I got inspired by the blog of Aussie Overlanders, an Australian couple that has the same start date as us, mid February. They also post a weekly update, which I…

Now that Panda is almost ready to test her wheels, it is time for us to decide which direction we want to steer her to. We have traveled a lot the past few years, but always with a backpack and public transport. For this trip we do not want to plan too far ahead because the idea is to take…

We were heading for the beach; we knew that much after weeks in Panama City. What we didn’t know was exactly where we were going – we’d already bent the back of the bus a few days before trying to find the sea down a rocky track. All along the coast, the easiest places to get too are resort/hotel…

Nossas metas nessa expedição são bem conhecidas: chegar a Barrow no Alasca e depois alcançar o final da Ruta 3, depois de Ushuaia, na Argentina.
