So having arrived in Dakhla we had expected to pick up a few other overlanders over the weekend so that we could go through the Western Sahara in convoy (since the formal army convoy had been abolished in January). So up at 7 for a 7:30am leave with Chris and Tanya from Austria who were […]
Bart and Wendy had taken the kids to the beach so after a morning of feeling very ill it was time to get up and do some work. First the handbrake needs some tightening and then to fix the anti-roll bar that seems to have broken. Well, after much fiddling the diagnosis is that it […]
Leaving Sidi Ifini to find Plage Blanche (white beach) but first a bath in one of the bath houses called a haman. The Moroccans have to wash before visiting the mosque and so these places are usually found near one, we however only found one for us girls. You go in wearing only your knickers […]
No this is not an episode of highlander but a short story on our adventure across the Sahara. By now you should have read Simon’s account of the minefield and we would like to apologise to our parents respectively for omitting to mention this aspect of our journey. Apart from the two French ladies strolling […]
So stuck in Gibraltar on Easter Monday, Nicole took the opportunity to finish off some college work and in the afternoon we went up the rock in the drizzle… On Tuesday we finally manage to visit the bank and sort a few things out before heading towards the ferry for Morocco.

Well actually we’ve had a few wins recently. We managed to change and inner tube successfully. Now, the last time I changed […]
So finally we get moving again. It´s been lovely hanging around in Geneva and catching up with Sarah but it´s time to hit the road again. Only this time we have a passenger. Bex has decided to join us for a couple of days as unfortunately Sarah has had to work. So we headed into […]
Well just so that everyone can get worried we have diagnosed that overheating problems as a problem with the head gasket. Anyone know a good mechanic? In France?
We’re in Geneva at the moment and have just found an internet cafe. We plan to update the site in a few days to keep an eye out for some new articles. In the meantime we’re both well and have been enjoying the snow!
