Why We Travel – Part Four

Our bike is unrecognisable. Somewhere under layers and layers of paint hides the once very orange body of our trusty steed – beaten up and at places broken by months of driving through the African continent.

Isiolo to Moyale

To say that there is nothing between Isiolo and Moyale would be a lie – there is loads of nothing and luckily a couple of really interesting things in between the nothingness. We travelled for 36 hours nonstop and covered 500km. We bargained and bargained and bargained some more. We didn’t eat much, dreamed of … Continue reading »

Breaking Point

Nairobi’s impressive skyline was still visible behind us when we both realised something serious was about to happen. The back tire felt like it was just missing and stopping seemed impossible – an accident was almost certain. We managed to swerve from the middle lane of the highway to the left but the road was just too … Continue reading »
