As some of you know I am going, UK, France, Spain, Morrocco, Mauritania, Senegal Gambia, staying for six weeks in Gambia (maybe nipping to Guinea) and then back (I am told that Saharan winds are interesting in March!!). I have managed to get a SpeedFerry booking for the 2nd of January 2006 for £33 sterling. That is with Land Rover and six passengers. Dover to Bolougne.
I tried sailing from Plymouth and was told it is almost impossible in January.
I should be in Morroco around about the 7th of Jan and enter Mauritania by about the 15th as I am taking it nice and easy. Maybe even the 18th depending on the weather in the North.
Anyway back to e-bay looking for more stuff for the trip.
I came, I saw. I ran for it.
