Cool Cross Egypt and Sudan together


We are in Turkey at the moment and will be here going via Syria and Jordan to Egypt arriving early October. It seems a sound idea to have a few travel companions for North Africa heading down the East coast.

We are two people on two BMW F650GS bikes. To read / find out more about us and our travels please look at www.long-way-home.com.

Is any one doing this route about this time and would like to meet?

Kind regards
Sandi & Paul

Will be about at that time. Similiar route, heading down to the family in SA. Riding a KTM 640.

Anyway, get in touch if you're keen as I'd be keen to hook up with some people for that stage as well.

Egypt 22nd Sept

Hi Ian

Thanks for your post! Will be great to meet up. Our plan is basically:
2 days Red Sea then to Alexandria. Visit Cairo by train to do the Sudanese visa and obligatory pyramids. Then the route we are thinking of is from Alexandria via the White Desert (Siwa oasis) down to Luxor.

In any case... How are your plans progressing? Can we meet in Alexandria?

And we need to get in touch with Omar to organise meeting him. Perhaps we could leave messages with Omar? Would that be ok?

We will try SMS Omar tonight.

Our email is long-way-home@hotmail.com
Telephone 44 (0)7966246007 Please SMS

Paul & Sandi

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.
