Visa Valid for 30 days, exit at 3 October.
Hello RoRo and KTM990.
I have an 30 days Visa end need to leave at 3 October. I want to be in Algiers from 8 September. Then I need to make up my mind. Do I stay max 30 days, or do I extend with another 45 days. Extending my Visa takes 2 weeks. My Visa is without a Guide!
I travel on an Honda Africa Twin. I can travel independent. I Camp, use Hotels, B&B and Surf couches etc. I am an active member of CouchSurfing – The world’s largest travel community
By Using CS I made friend who I did not met in person yet. I am invited by several people, to stay at there houses this in September.
For October, and half November, I don't have any plans yet.
I look at the messages from KTM990 and RoRo and compared with You i'm an absolute beginner in Africa:-) I want to learn a lot from You 2 ;-)
Because te border with Morocco is closed I go to Spain and visit Family and friends there. I live in Montpellier/South of France. Actually i'm kind of homeless, but i rent an summer Holliday house at Carnon-Plage or stay at friends places when i'm there. I drive back home (its so near). Then I have my travel break for 2 months. After that I go to Morocco, West Cost down to South Africa. Then I have my 2 months travel break in West Europe by airplane. After coming back in South Africa I go east cost up, back to Montpellier. Who trip will take several years. I travel something like 5 months and have an travel break for something like 2 months. I want to travel the coming 10 years.
I like to meet people, visit touristic places, don't like high way's, look always for the smaller then small lines on my map to drive. I am experienced on asphalt, bad roads, gravel. But i'm not an experienced driver in sand and muddy roads. But this is definitely something I want to learn. For this reason I drive an Honda Africa Twin. I like to makes photo's and communicate on Internet, if available. I use a Garmin 276C and openstreetmaps. This is funny, because I need always an Michelin map with it because of the problems with the arabic characters. I managed to use this in Tunisia, and i found the border near Tabarka/Tunisia to Algeria, so i'm not completely lost. Using Waypoint is something i still need to learn. But this is because i'm driving roads until now.
I don't now How You want to travel! Can You tell me e bit off Your ideas?
