Smile How to meet

Hi Arek and Chris,

First Arek, lets find a place in either Spain or Morocco to meet. I expect that by 7th or 8th January we will be crossing into Morocco. We will then be moving in the direction of the Atlas Mountains. If this more or less fits in with your plans suggest a place and time to meet and have a .

Chris how long do you plan to take going down to South Africa? How can we keep contact while travelling? I am always keen to make contact and to keep in touch.

How about all of us publishing out planned itineraries. I know from experience it is only a rough guide but it helps.

I am busy recovering data from my old computer and will, when I get it, try and give as much info as possible abouth Visas and where to get them.
Happy planning
