The end, back to reality
Sadly so, it's the end of a epic journey for me. What a roller coaster of an adventure it's been, I never thought that I would embark on such a trip having never rode a motorbike before (learnt 3 wks prior to leaving in London). But it's been absolutely amazing and am so glad that I made the decision to quit my job and just go for it!
So to all you out there who are not sure whether they can do it or not.. Just try it, anyone can do it if they really want to.

Southern Africa: wildlife in Kruger National Park
We have been amazed at the generous hospitality of the many a south Africans we've met along our travels. People we hardly know, kindly invite us into their home, cook us delicious meals and force good beer and wine down our throats! Rob and I can't wait for an opportunity to return the favour one day in Australia.
After travelling through South Africa for months, we head east into the infamous Kruger National Park where we spent two days spotting wildlife.....

More adventures after Capetown
After spending over a month in Capetown revitalising the bikes at Tim's Motorcycles shop, engine out for new rings in the Africa Twin, new forks and stocking up for the next leg of Rob's trip up the east coast, we head east along the Garden Route.
