Tulum, Mexico

Posted from Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Reunion! (Photos are below) This past week was simultaneously exciting and relaxing: exciting because we welcomed our first visitors since we have been outside the country!  Relaxing because, well, we just made it that…

Goodbye Guernsey

Emma and I are sat on the ferry, watching St Peter Port harbour disappear into the distance. We have officially set sail (from Guernsey at least).  We marked this occasion by having a serious weekend of partying with our friends…

De la Cape Town la Springbok

Dupa trei zile petrecute in orasul Mama Cape Town si imprejurimi am incalecat pe Terracan din nou si am pus azimut Springbok, un orasel mic, cu multa istorie, ultimul oras din Africa de Sud inainte de granita cu Namibia care…

Air-dreaming

Well, it’s about that time.  The time when we move out of our winter rental (a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom beach house!) into our beautiful little silver bullet. Meet “The Airstream” Nate and I have lived in several places (eight…

The End!

By Johno Ellison After nearly fifteen months, over 43,000 miles, 8000 litres of diesel, fifty countries and four continents the moment that we’ve been simultaneously looking forward to and dreading is finally nearly here! In few short hours we will…

Sure its all good right?

Its all fun right?? I am having the time of my life right!.. sure I am.. but sure shit has to go wrong too and I have had a interesting week of it… here is the gist of a conversation…

Pinguinii si Submarinul

Daca Cape Town este frumos, imprejurimile sunt fantastice si aceasta am constatat astazi 09 Mai cand in ultima zi pe peninsula am condus in jur de 100 km pana la oraselul Simon`s Town sa vizitam colonia de pinguini. Pe o…

Whacky Wednesday in Yosemite

Watch this video: https://vimeo.com/41856099  <<<<<<< So this was day three of our stay in Yosemite I think.  While we had found an amazing quiet and private campsite by the Merced River (thank you John Rudd of the Dry Gulch Campground…

A Zambian Expandation

Na Nakapulayo reden we dieper de Banguela swamps in. Onderweg passeerden we tientallen dorpjes. Er werd wat afgezwaaid. We kwamen onder andere een jongetje tegen dat ons fier en cool vertelde dat de duikbril die hij op had zijn `shades`…

Bolivia, towards Uyuni

Bolivian border formalities were quick and straight forward, nothing like the horror stories that I had heard about. The differences between Argentina and Bolivia are immediately obvious, the shops explode out onto the streets and old ladies in bowler hats…

Strike News! Good News!

Transport strike ends today – general strike starts tomorrow and runs for the rest of the week.  Diesel availability? Who knows?  We have four gallons, not enough to risk a departure into the countryside.  Time for a hike maybe, some…

Cape Town

Pe 07 Mai, seara am intrat in Cape Town, dinspre Est, traversand o trecatoare prin munti care se deschide cu o priveliste de iti i-a rasuflarea. Orasul este un miracol al naturii din punct de vedere geologic si de relief.…

28 Days Later

Despair.  Agony.  Devastation.  Mind numbing depression. We boarded the plane in São Paulo expecting the worst. Returning to life? We quizzed our veteran overland friends on the homecoming and transition process. The general consensus was bleak.  We just spent 15 months…

O Zi de Relaxare 06 Mai 2012

In ciuda faptului ca Farul nu a incetat sa se invarta toata noaptea, intr-un final am adormit iar soarele de la capatul Africii, impreuna cu tipetele pescarusilor au reusit sa ne trezeasca. Cortul era acoperit de roua diminetii. Am sarit…

04 Mai, Gonubie la Knysna

Prima dimineata in cort a fost ceva foarte inedit si mai ales ca dormim la etaj. Cand iesim din cort, bineinteles cu spatele caci trebuie sa coboram pe scara, deci imbratisam dimineata cu partea dorsala (bine ca nu suntem superstitiosi).…

Welcome our new sponsors – Howling Moon.

We are excited to anounce Howling Moon as material sponsors for our expedition. We have used Howling Moon gear for years and we have been impressed by the quality of the locally designed and assembled Howling Moon products. The Howling Moon tent is essentially our…

Quick update

Just a quick update this week – when travel is involved, time takes on new meaning ;) – malaria tablets, test kit and treatment acquired – additional wolf boxes acquired – further progress on level 1 and level 2 of…

Overlanders in the Baviaanskloof

On a recent trip to the Baviaanskloof with two Norwegian overlanders (www.unurban.no) we learnt a few things about ourselves. Naturally there was the mine is bigger, quicker and smarter than yours camping/ vehicle competition, but in true overlander style less is…
