This is my first post, (great site btw). Im at the start of planing a trip from scotland to south africa... for August 08. Ive never overlanded on a motorcycle before so Im very very new to the whole experience of carnet's etc...
Id just like to ask a few questions on the above post.
If the carnet isn't essential on such a trip which route did you take?
And did you have to pay any money at any border crossing's if you dont have your carnet?.
Is it more advisable to get a carnet before I embark on my trip?.
Sorry if this has all been covered it's just that Ive heard some conflicting information on this route regarding carnets and would really like to have a clear view in my mind and on paper before setting anything else in motion.
My planned route was from the UK down the east coast of africa to SA.
Id also appreciate any info or travel tips of my route.
Sorry for the Hijack....
I suppose I should really start my own thread.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Kind Regards. Darren
