Travelling Africa on a KLR

Category: Uncategorized


I am soft, marshmallowey soft, so I decided to go home  for a few weeks at Christmas. It was very cold, the first time we had ice on the lakes in twenty years. It was great to see everyone at home and have a chance to relax.

Remind me again why I came back

Good Bye Canada

I am sitting at the airport in Montreal and wanted to thank everyone for their Best Wishes. I will see you when I get back.

What Have I Got Myself in To


I have dreamed of going to Africa for many years now. When people ask me why I never have a good answer. I want to see cool things and want to experience new cultures.

This summer after being told by my parents to $#@^ or get off the pot I finally bit the bullet and bought a ticket to Paris, where I will start my journey. From there I will work my way south through Spain to Morocco. After that I will bring the bike and myself back to Europe and fly us to South Africa.

So for the last few months I have been getting vaccinations, doing paperwork, training my replacement at the office, and going grey at a faster rate.

I will be posting about once a week depending on Wi-fi availability and you can track my progress on the tracking page.
