Egypt to Europe - Quickest, Easiest, Cheapest route

Hi, we are in Egypt, trying to get to London, We have been on the road in Africa for almost two years and are now out of money and energy. Libya seems to be a hassle, cant find a ferry from Alexandria and jordan, syria, turkey seems a long way.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Yo waverider. No ferries that I know of, most straighforward way is riding though Syria/Jordan into Turkey. It's actually not that far and easy riding. Once in Turkey, there are ferries from the west coast to Italy etc.

Try here A. Rosenfeld Shipping Ltd., Israel ,so we are at our middle east trip including Israel later this year,spoke with Rosenfeld Shiping and they told me they have ferry twice per week from Haifa(Israel) which cost about EUR 500.Three days later you are in Athens.For more information you would try to conect Yoni(gold HUBB member)with PM to him.
Hope this help!

Cheers and good luck,

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
