Factory Roof Rack fail. It was about six the morning of the third night in our roof top tent when we heard the first loud pop, which was followed about 15 minutes later by second loud pop but this time…

MEXICO – EARLY DAYS

WELCOME TO MEXICO, AMIGO! 19th August: I’ve never liked snakes at the best of times, and this one’s looking particularly menacing. It’s not yet nine o’clock in the morning and here I am, balancing a mug of tea whilst leafing…

Google Earth

My wake up call sounded spot on at 4h40 my pick up to be 5h10 and off I set in the morning darkness to see Luxor by flight . The moon full my fifth on the trip I think ,  …

Luxurious Luxor

After a good nights rest , I woke to a picture perfect morning , indulged with the array of vanities at my disposal and then down to breakfast to complete the  extravagance with pastries , fresh coffee , a fluffy…

Injured Reserve

Luckily, I un-stressed myself right before injuring myself…which during our tight timeline surely would have sent me back into the abyss. We were having a great couple of days.  A fantasy football draft party, a few visits with friends and…

The Road to Panama City

I can think of a few significant milestones we’ve reached on our trip thus far. Setting out, after so much work, saving, and planning was a huge one. Reaching Inuvik, NWT, Canada, the northernmost point of our trip, before turning…

Into the green meadows …….

Day 123 – BTW – we heard later that the German school children that were so badly behaved at Avalon House – put a hole through the wall in the one dorm, how, we don’t know? L: We’re on our…

Alexandria

  They say the English invented bureaucracy, and Egyptians perfected it. Luckily, the latter are also extremely helpful, as the meander of government buildings and bureaus, translators and happy stampings are as complex as their ancient hieroglyphics… Thank Allah for…

The dreamliner

I woke up early with both excitement and anticipation for the crossing into Egypt , I was to meet Mazaar later in the morning to hopefully load Victoria and I on the same ferry  , as well  as process all…

Cooking Necessities

I tried to slip deeper into the corner as the six or seven men crowding the room chopped and stirred with deliberate haste. The youngest of them crouched on their haunches, low to the floor, in that way some cultures…

Up North

So this weekend I was abandoned by Fiona as she had a weekend organised with the girls in Liverpool so I headed up North to a bike rally, its been a while since I attended a rally by myself, its…

Hunting Hyenas

There seems to be a pattern that’s developed over the course of the past few months and it goes something like this. We make a plan. Some part of that plan (usually Sid) breaks down and so we pop the…

Argentina, we meet at last

It’s all a bit lovely in northern Argentina. Purmamarca, Jujuy. San Ignacio Guasú, Paraguay [by Paula] The arid deserty landscapes of northern Argentina notwithstanding, the country is proving to be something of an oasis. With a few small exceptions, we’ve…

Introducing iOverlander

I wish I could tell you that the inspiration for our drive down the Pan-American highway was completely original–that one day we just decided to hit the road and keep driving south until we couldn’t any more. Unfortunately, I can’t.  …

Make a new plan, Sam …..

Day 120 – Seriously 120…… L: I passed out so early last night so now I am wide awake at 5am, and hungry!! Nothing to snack on up here though. A young guy joined us last night. Johannes from Germany.…

Hookey’s Adventure

After the long descent from the top of the escarpment down into South Luangwa National Park it was a relief to come across the very remote northern park entry gate. We pulled up in a cloud of dust surrounded by…

Kurentovanje
