Off to Africa - at last!

Here I sit, at Heathrow, awaiting my flight to Dubai, then on to Addis Ababa tomorrow. It's finally happening. I'm off to Africa!

As I have about 8 days to wait till the bike arrives in Addis [it's also flying, but through an agent, so who knows how long it will take!!] I am hoping to get the website fully up to date, that means reports for the 2.5 months that I've spent in UK/Europethis year.

Apologies to all the regular readers who've been asking why no reports. Just a bit lazy, I suppose. No, more a case of lack of motivation, which is basically the same thing. But once I start, I'm usually OK, so we'll see what happens.

What I may do is write the current report AND an older one each time I get motivated, till they're all up to date. At least that way, you'll be able to see what I'm currently doing.

The plan is to ride down to Nairobi, leave the bike there and go on a 17 day truck (camping) safari to see the gorillas, Masai Mara etc etc. But they have this silly rule about one needing a doctor's certificate if over 60. Bloody hell! We shall see ...

Nearly time to board, so click HERE to go back to the older updates.
