Thank you so much for all the messages of support, I’m truly touched that so many people are not only enjoying my blog, but willing me to continue. And a special message to Andrew (and those who followed his call) – I think a small prayer was answered. What are the chances of riding through Dakar and meeting someone from the Zebra Bar I met last week? He put me in touch with a campsite, with showers, kitchen, wifi and very cheap. This has removed a big headache as it was getting expensive staying on in Dakar to sort myself out.
The end result is – I’ve hatched a cunning plan…
The African journey will end when I fly back to London and sort out my passport. It will also be an opportunity to fix up the bike and a few other broken parts. Then I have to try to organise some IT/Website work to take back on the road with me. I’ve already had one kind follower offer me work but I’ll need more, so if you need a website or help with anything IT related, please get in touch. I’ll also look at getting some casual work – fruit picking etc. I need to do this to top up my funds so that I can continue my trip.
But now for the exciting part, Africa will end, at least for the time being. From London I will head into Europe, exact countries not yet sorted but I’m thinking something like: Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan and India.
OK flight is being sorted, I should be in London in a few days!
The final destination of course is the Karakorum Highway and onto Everest Base Camp.
Some plan, but when I first began this trip this was always my ultimate goal. It will happen folks, so get your maps out and let’s have some feedback on my choices before we finalise the route.
