This Is A Day To Day Account Of My Motorbike Journey Beginning In September 2007.
A Total Of 25,168 Kilometers Overland Through 18 Countries, from Malaysia to Ireland In 99 Days.
Crisscrossing between Argentina and Chile from Los Antiguos on Lago Buenos Aires, south along Route 40 through the seemingly endless semi-baron pampa; bedding down at delightful ‘Estancias’ supplying refuge by way of warm fires and generous patagonian hospitality on my way to El Califate, on Lake Argentino, and the beautiful Los Glaciers National Park including the spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier. From here, the howling Patagonic winds sweeping off the southern ice-sheet and snowcapped peaks of the Cordillera del Paine are relentless, making the perilous journey to Torres del Paine National Park and Puerto Natales an extremely cold, slow and unforgettable experience. Finally the road ends in the pioneer town of Punta Arenas, where a ferry is required to continue the journey onto Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego, or ‘Big Island of Land of Fire’ - and the Atlantic coast for the final push to the world’s southern most city: Ushuaia - known affectionately by the locals as ‘Fin del Mundo’, quite literally, ‘The End of the World’. Again, the ceaseless hospitality and customary friendliness of the locals - in particular my good friends Rosario and Roberto -, rearranged my travel plans and extended my original 3 nights hotel-stay, to a 2 week home-stay. Simply: they wouldn’t let me leave!

2 Aussies are packing up their lives, jacking up Toy the trusty Landcruiser, and driving through Africa in search of fun, flora, fauna, and (mis)fortune. From Cape Town to somewhere, via Southern and Eastern Africa.
Follow all the action here; through desert, forest, savannah, mountains, beaches, and cold beers over big vistas. Remote camp spots. The Kalahari, Okavango, Namib, Katavi, Serengeti, Ngorongoro. People. The Big Five. Mountain Gorillas. Wildlife generally. Bush cooking. Scuba in Mozambique and the Red Sea. Hiking. Kilimanjaro. Mt Elgon. Fixing things. Winching. The unexpected.
Five minutes after Stephen Gordon rode his shiny new Kawasaki KLR 650 out of the showroom he realised he'd just made the biggest mistake of his life.
Two blokes, two bikes, a great cause - and a journey of a lifetime! Besides fulfilling a long time dream of crossing the continent on bikes, Damian Milo & Bruce Potts will also be promoting depression awareness. The pair will be crossing directly east to west before turning south and heading back home via the Nullabor. This trip will also be followed up in mid 2011 with a similar journey Across the Top...
