Revisiting Zanzibar

Eight months after our return from our “I do Africa” adventure, we have been very fortunate to revisit Zanzibar. This time it was different since it was 5 star accommodation instead of our “I do Africa” minimal budget. We went on behalf of The Herald and Times Media to review the amazing travel packages offered … Continue reading »

Buy a Map!

So, we took the wrong way up! Serves us right for attempting to do a Trans-African trip without a map or a guide book. Yet, as someone once said, “Bad decisions make good stories”.

Why we travel: Part Three

We met Hassan Luchi two years ago during our first visit to Kenya on a beach in Tiwi, just outside of Mombasa. Back then we helped him out a bit but weren’t really able to do much and sadly we lost contact after we left – constantly wondering how he is doing. The beaches here … Continue reading »

My dream to share time amongst these loving and undeniably human-like creatures started ten years ago during my first stay in Uganda. Back then my savings from working at … Continue reading »

Tough Times

Before we embarked on this crazy honeymoon journey we were aware of the ‘hard times’ we would inevitably need to face and battle through. Times that will be a requirement to complete this adventure successfully. We were conscious of the fact that our motorcycle, our own characters and our marriage will be tested and challenged … Continue reading »

This is How We Do It!

During the first month of our journey we have been taking some footage whilst driving in order to give everyone an idea of what we are getting up to. Obviously the footage was very raw and shaky but we were finally able to get it to our friend Disco who created this awesome video. Check … Continue reading »

Restless in Zimbabwe

Even though our 3.8cm self-inflatable camping mattresses, sadistically called ‘Comfort Light’, are crucial items to minimise the bedsores, they signify the epitome of a love-hate relationship. Big Boy, our poor 150cc delivery motorcycle, heaves twice his own weight around to deliver us to the day’s brand new way point on this Trans-African honeymoon adventure. After … Continue reading »
