I must say that, while I enjoyed crossing Labrador, I was ready to head back towards civilization after our hot and dusty days there. Crossing the border into Quebec was anti-climatic. We were still a 9 hour drive and 400…

A year ago Hookey and I sat freezing in front of the wood fire at his little place on the Delatite river, wondering what to do with 2014. We hatched the Africa Plan with only the vaguest sense of ‘planning’…

I could feel the sun beating down, in spite of the protection the sunshade above offered. May flies danced on the water as Aspen napped on my feet and Porter fretted over a passing beetle. It was a day filled…

Our 2014 NW Overland Rally experience started about 10 minutes before we were supposed to talk about our Vancouver to Costa Rica trip.  Traffic at the border and along Highway 2 added a couple of extra hours to our journey.  We rolled…

Botwana is not the place for spontaneity. Committing to an itinerary weeks ahead is not part of our ritual but was absolutely necessary here. Especially during the South African school holidays when campsites that charge $50US a head and don’t…

After our indulgent evening with like-minded cohorts Stephen and Caroline, the morning greeted us a little too early along with the slight reminder of the previous nights drinking habits.
Anyway we packed and headed for a supermarket which proved OK…

Jongens,
Deze blog is gemaakt voor oma’s, opa’s, familie, vrienden en ook voor jullie, later als herinnering aan deze fantastische reis.  Maar, ook voor mezelf als aandenken aan mijn bijzondere jongens.  Het was een heel avontuur waarin we samen prettige momenten…

Tierradentro ligt ver weg voor toeristen. De overheid is de wegen nochtans sterk aan het verbeteren. Dat doet ze ook al om vroeger haast onbereikbare gebieden minder interessant te maken voor de guerilleros om zich daar te verstoppen.

Vanaf Riohacha trekken Jkes en Gkes samen het schiereiland Guajira op. De hitte houdt aan. De thermometer geeft tussen de 37 en de 40 graden aan. Met airco op volle toeren rijden we zover noordelijk als we veilig kunnen.  Het…

Rwanda
Rwanda is een bijzonder,  in sommige opzichten haast een onafrikaans land. De wegen zijn goed,  bijna nergens ligt rommel,  het openbaar groen is verzorgd en overal zien we veldjes waarop mannen en vrouwen met elementair gereedschap aan het werk…
