Zambia (the first two weeks).. In photos and poetry

My last blog didn’t have many photos in, I have now managed to get some (thank you to all of those who sent some to me!). I also mentioned a poem my Dad wrote about the week with us – it used to be a tradition at Christmas that my Grandfather would read...
Cameroon

Cameroon

Leaving Nigeria and moving onto Cameroon was an interesting morning.. Arriving at the first immigration check point Charles, Mwandy and Rob were informed that our visas had expired previously and we were illegally in the country. The officer told us to carry on...
Benin

Benin

The drive to the Benin boarder was very simple and didn’t take very long. Getting our documents stamped was easy, as well as getting the passe vant… They still looked blankly at the carnet.We had decided to head to Cotonou straight away because we wanted...
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...

Out of Mali and into Burkina Faso

‘ Spending time at the Sleeping Camel had been great, meeting up with the Oasis Overland truck had been good fun. We were able to chat to others about their experiences, and were taken to a little food stall by the road by Jacob and Yuki .. It was such good...
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,...
