Lovely spanish guy who helped translate english to spanish to help fix Rob's forkseals in Algeciras.
Marcel & Monique The sweet dutch couple who we relaxed with in Tarifa, Spain. Playing chess, drank and ate Hagel Slag. Thanks to Marcel, we now have hemi lights for our travels! (they still havent run out yet) and of course Woody, the Siberian husky became my new buddy.
Stefan & Steffi
lovely Germans holidaying in Tarifa. Hope the wind picked up for you.
Grant, Lara & Justin (fellow Aussies) we met on the ferry to Africa! Accompanied at the border and travelled with them towards Chefchaouen and Fes. All I can say is crazy camper van driving around blind corners.
Nice one Justin! I'm still in shock

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 such as this one (18 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.
