full 95min film of double trans Africa in TLC on Youtube

Hi,

Since the selling of the DVD is discontinued, I have put the complete 95min fully edited, subtitled and narrated film of our double Trans Africa trip on You tube in high quality ! It had to be cut is 10 pieces but its all there!

The route was down the west coast and up the east coast so if you are interested in getting a fair idea about route, landscapes and road conditions because you are preparing a trip your selves just have a look.

Angola should be a bit better by now but otherwise Africa does not change very fast


Enjoy and let me know what you think of it....

cheers,

Crossing Africa DVD

2 years after buying it I still enjoy getting a good red wine and watching this DVD!

I am still jealous that you could do the Aire mountains and Tenere Desert, maybe next time!

Thanks for sharing this Noel! I am downloading it now and will look at it tonight.

I must admit I already feel guilty for not having bought the DVD in the first place

Am I right in thinking that the amount work you put into making this is substantially higher then the revenue this has created?

Thanks again!

He Paul,

Thxs, next semi big trip (3 months) is West Coast Australia, leaving March 27!

Trying to get the filming & editing gear working on a mini laptop right now , not so easy.

Looking forward to filming it, although you may not find your back yard as exotic as the African footage.

Cheers,

Noel
