Hi Jaap,

I might be interested in this trip. What sort of route are you thinking of taking, the countries you expect to be passing through?

Hallo Thomas,

Ich spreche Deutch. Wohne seit 3 jahre in die nahe von Bern aber schreib selber lieber in english

I was trying to get around the "not so stable" countries but there is no ferry to alexandria for passengers, or i havent found it yet.
So Tunesia Lybia Egypt and down would be my idea
From other people i was following up on their blogs i heard they had no problems and a good time in Lybia...except for the lybian-egyptian border which is no fun..

On the other hand..its all part of the trip and experience and how you deal with it no?

Schreib mir in Deutch was deine idee ist
jaapoudman@hotmail.com

Gruss

Hi,

I'm looking to leave UK/Europe around August (Or beg of Sept subject to getting the Visas sorted!) with a rough intention of being in Cape Town by Christmas. Looking to take an adventurised KTM690. If that fits in with any other plans, please do take contact! East or West, but likely east route.

Cheers
