Well, with the little wimpers of my ould mate Damo who came to Spain for a visit. Damo was the guy who showed up to our house on the Monday of the week we were due to leave to help out for a few hours, and managed to leave on the Friday. I think we owed him a bit of…
Finally we cross into the Southern Hemisphere!!!!
Clockwise or anti-clockwise????? All depends on which side of the equator you are!!!
And on the equator it puts straight down without going clockwise or anti-clockwise. CRAZY!!!…
Although the ride today was only a short one, it was made through a testing section of the Los Padres National Forest… Over a hundred kilometres of tight, twisting road, that curled up steep inclines and dipped into deep valleys…
The road had no run off areas at all, and not only is it quite narrow in places, but recent…
Long term travellers and ex-pats get used to being asked what they miss most from ‘home’, although it often seems that home is more about being ‘wherever I lay my hat’, to quote the old song, than a specific place. The clichéd answer to the question is ‘friends and family’, but that is taken as a given and not usually…

A Ugandan Kob antelope
First stop after crossing the Rwanda/Uganda western border at Cyanika was a fairly new and pleasant campsite at a place called Muko Campsite at the northern end of the lovely Lake Bunyoni. (Co ordinates lost but the campsite is in Tracks for Africa). We were the…
I picked myself up off the ground and got back to wrenching on the truck. With less than an hour to go and not much progress getting our truck running right I decided to throw in the towel. Sheena (Brads right hand lady) called us a cab. $60 ride to the airport! Ouch.
On the way to the airport, We…
Posted from Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico.
After three somewhat traumatic weeks in Puebla (let’s just say that my “friend” in Puebla is no longer my friend and I’m very grateful the whole ugly situation is behind me), I had the amazing good fortune of being able to spend a week with a very dear friend from Minnesota in Mexico…

Bip Bip hospitalisé en Honduras, j’ai dû prendre le bus pour retrouver ma copine Delphine au Nicaragua et laisser Chrissy en garde-malade…
Finalement on a peine eu le temps de visiter Léon et d’arriver à la plage de Penitas que nous avons vu Bip Bip débarquer avec Chrissy après une semaine d’hospitalisation GRATUITE!!!!!!!!
Nous avions donc 3 semaines à passer…
Nu poti rata ocazia, cand te afli pe insula Zanzibar, de a merge pe plantatii sa inveti despre condimente. Astazi am realizat inca o data cat de indolenti si superficiali suntem, ( imi cer scuze pentru cei ce nu sunt si ii apreciez sincer). Atatea lucruri ne inconjoara si nu consideram ca este necesar sa stim de unde vin? cum…

We were so grateful to have the Hippocampe as a base over the next two weeks. We recuperated, gradually gave Bluebelle a well-deserved clean out, and slowly got to know Brazzaville. We had much more time than we needed here and didn’t expect our Angolan visas to take so long after…
There will be a delay in this weeks and next weeks posting here on the blog, on Monday I had an accident and fell down the lower half of a flight of wooden stairs with Macbook in hand, the laptop fell on the tile floor at the bottom and the screen is now dead.
Fortunately, I have the use of…
Cu regrete a trebuit sa ne despartim pentru o perioada scurta, de Terracan, calul Expeditiei, dar l-am lasat in maini bune si intr-un loc frumos, pe plaja la Mikadi in Dar es Salaam. La ora 5:00 AM pe data de 28 Iunie am plecat din Mikadi cu un Tuc-Tuc (motoreta taxiu pe trei roti) inspre Dar es Salaam, unde ne-am…
It’s surprising how much flotation you can get out of a 235/85/16 BFG All-Terrain in soft sand—even under the mass of an HJ78 Land Cruiser Troopie—if it’s properly aired down to around one bar (14.7 psi). At that pressure the contact patch elongates significantly, providing vital surface area without the frontal resistance produced by a wider tire.
However, at one…
Zomba Plateau is a special place and it really feels as there is not another soul in the world. Zomba Plateau is a huge slab of mountain raising some 1800m behind the town which is so full of history and the most beautiful old colonial house winding up the mountain. This is now home for the next 3 nights before…
On route to Palm Beach we stopped in at Monkey Bay to pick up some supplies to find that the Metro was not much help as the items we needed were not to be found on their shelves, so Terry suggested that we go past Palm Beach to Mangochi. First stop was Halaal butchery and you could just see the…
Adventure Motorcycling Video highlights from the big trip as we arrived in Colombia, then headed south to the tip of South America to Tierra Del Fuego in Argentina.
Very difficult to summarise 4 months into three minutes but we have managed to capture some of our best videos and photos to give you a real taste of what we encountered…
Another long and especially hot day in the saddle…!!
Visited the Hoover Dam and met two amazing guys on their Harley’s… Ed Rieken and Dain Chapman, who hail from Tennessee, are riding their bikes around the southern states… What makes them remarkable, is the fact that they are both amputees, but have never let the fact that they are each…
We are in Iran now since 15 days, and we are already so full of new experiences and stories, it is hard to summarize everything. Iran is definitely completely different from the picture the media draw of it in western countries. All people we have met so far were friendly, welcoming, and honestly interested in us. Also police and officials…

Rwanda. Land of 1,000 hills!
The first thing that struck us about Rwanda (other than how mountainous the “country of 1,000 hills” is with greenery all around) was how neat and orderly most things seemed to be compared with other countries in Africa? The government of Paul Kigame has certainly kept…
