Hey, thanks for the tips. I've got some comments/questions about the points you made.
Firstly, the proposed route is a very rough quide to where we want to go.
Morocco - I am aware that the border to Algria is closed. Still hoping this will change soon.
Libya - didn't know you needed a guide through here. You seem to think this will be expensive. If we just rode through as quick as possible...how much do you think a guide would cost?
If the Moroccan/Algeria border is still closed when we leave then we will get a ferry from France to Algeria or Tunisia. Really weant to ride across North africa (especially to get to Ethiopia!), so getting through Libya is quite important.
India/Pakistan - I was concerned about the India/Pakistan border, so it is good news that you say there is at least 1 border post open!!
