Have started planning a similar trip: 2 landrovers 4 of us, morocco, maurit, mali. in July-Oct. Have been discouraged by comments that it is just too damn hot to do it then! Would consider revising route to make a convoy with you :-)
Have not done this before and am wondering how long you think your journey will take?

Zivjo

tkole gre: pred parimi tedni sva se s prijateljico vrnile iz Gane. In nikakor se ne moreva privadit na tale zivljenje tukej v Sloveniji in zato le razmisljava kako se spet cimprej vrnit v Gano in nasploh v Afriko. Potovanje z avtom cez Saharo do Gane sicer nacrtujeva v avgustu, ampak po moje bi bil tud januar kr u redu . Cist tko informativno me zanima kolk casa bi to trajal, kaksni so kej stroski, itd.

upam, da se cim prej slisva,

Spela
