Border Crossings: South Africa to Swaziland (and back)

Some call Swaziland ‘hassle-free Africa’, and that’s exactly what we experienced crossing the border into the country from South Africa. Minimal paperwork and no trouble whatsoever. Which border to choose? There are a number of overland border...
Hola, Mexico! Hola, San Felipe!

Hola, Mexico! Hola, San Felipe!

We were prepared to get searched at the border of Mexico… or at the very least questioned. So did our buddies from Wandrly who we are planning to spend our entire time with in Baja. Not only did we not get questioned nor searched, we didn’t even talk to a...
Time for a rest

Time for a rest

Firstly, Jen and I both hope that all have experienced a wonderfully relaxing Christmas and New Year and we sincerely hope that you are as excited about the year ahead as we are. So it’s been a while since we last posted an update but we didn’t want to intrude on our...
Senegal – Mali border

Senegal – Mali border

The road leading to Kedougou was less than desirable as we dodged some seriously large potholes. Some of the road was good and then a massive pothole would creep up on you and you would be swerving all over the road. Then the tar would end and you’d be doing...
Dakar and Lac Rose, Senegal

Dakar and Lac Rose, Senegal

After spending days searching the net and speaking to other travelers for any information on whether there was a campsite in Dakar. We came to the conclusion there was nothing. We had thought about camping in a hotel car park and spoke to a couple that were currently...

[Please scroll down for the English version] [LV] Viss sākās ar nevainīgu e-pastu no drauga, kas vēstī par iespēju nokļūt Kanādā pa lēto. Ātri apskatos kas un kā – tiešām lēti, patiesībā divreiz lētāk nekā jebkad esmu redzējis. Tajā brīdī pa galvu sāk skriet negantas...

Weirdistan

Turkmenistan is by far the strangest country we’ve had the pleasure of visiting. Unfortunately we didn’t get the chance to see much of it as we were only granted a 5-day transit visa. Due to numerous Iranian visa delays we had to enter Turkmenistan in the...
Into Tajikistan

Into Tajikistan

We decided to head directly from Samarkand to Dushanbe via the more direct border crossing at Tuzanaade rather than go north to Tashkent, into the Fergana valley and the Fan mountains, as we wanted to make up some time prior to the Pamir Highway. A big chunk to miss,...
Our Last Baja Journey

Our Last Baja Journey

As you may know, we returned to the U.S. for a month of work and renovations on the mog.  This marked our 5th time driving the Peninsula and each trans-baja drive comes with a new adventure attached to it. Crossing into Mexico through San Ysidro (San Diego)...
Mali, Bamako, Sleeping Camel

Mali, Bamako, Sleeping Camel

We wanted to make what we hear. Have been nearly two weeks in Mali and it is much more, though nothing spectacular happened. Did you get a visa for Nigeria and Ghana, two of which visas are really hard to come by. Was only with much palaver, and back and forth is...
