Guyana: Rupununi

Guyana: Rupununi

Every now and then, overlanding travel throws up not just a gem, but a surprising gem. A kind of “Well! Who knew???” moment. In south Guyana we have such a moment. After the minor disaster that was our short-lived attempt to reach Kaieteur, in the Guyana...
Success on the Bloomfield Track

Success on the Bloomfield Track

Despite my last post, where I expressed my worries about proceeding on the way to Cape York, we did the Bloomfield Track without any problems. In reality I simply wish I hadn’t spoken to those 2 couples who, having just completed Cape York and done Bloomfield...
Guyana: Tolls and TV Stardom

Guyana: Tolls and TV Stardom

Driving into a new country you inevitably find yourself comparing it to the one you have just left. What’s different? What’s the same? Is the food (or more importantly, the beer) any better or worse? We really enjoyed our time in Suriname with the drone and the jungle...
Where the Desert Meets the Sea

Where the Desert Meets the Sea

We had been in Namibia over two weeks by the time we got to Windhoek, the capital city. Our plan was to set up a base camp and get some “town chores” done. Sometimes, especially in somewhere so sparsely populated as Namibia, you can only get some services...
As far North as we can go!

As far North as we can go!

Now we are North of Cairns and we aim to travel as far North as we can. We hope that will be at least Bamaga. Many people who know the route have said we’ll be fine, some even say we’ll be fine to get to Cape York. Some say we shouldn’t do any of it,...

Grand day oot

Surprisingly warm today and no rain, a most unusual kind of weather for us here in Scotland, Martin visited us this morning and I was surprised to see he hadn’t brought the West coast rain with him. Off we set for a bimble around the borders, Fi riding the...

Review – KLIM Krios dual sport adventure helmet

What the KLIM KRIOS is like to live with.  Many of you will remember the KLIM KRIOS as the old Uvex helmet shell sold a few years ago. It was a damn great helmet and being manufactured from Carbon fibre made it a light weight affordable alternative to the likes...

Moto & Drone

We are often asked how we use the little motorcycles that we carry on the front of MogTug.  They have proven awesome little adventure machines, helping us with everything from getting groceries, to scouting a dirt road before busting through with MogTug. One random...
This is an Adventure not a Holiday

This is an Adventure not a Holiday

We woke to a sunny day. The idea today is to ride into Ushguli and then tomorrow continue on the dirt road past there in a loop  and we plan to get to the capital Tbilisi the day after. We were a bit concerned about the amount of rain and the condition of the “road”...
So… Suriname!

So… Suriname!

Suriname, Suriname… where exactly is that? Near Vietnam? Nope. Next door to Ghana? Errr, no. It’s on the north coast of South America, above Brazil, snuggled comfortably between French Guiana and Guyana. It’s in the northern Amazon basin, so it’s hot, humid and – at...
On the road again

On the road again

Fi spotted a link on Faceboak for a cafe racer meeting at South Queensferry on Friday so we went along to see what the fuss was about, en route we met a guy on a nice Suzuki cafe racer who asked if we were going, hmmm I thought , this could be busy. In the end it...
