Free Place to stay in Swaziland
« on: January 17, 2013, 08:36:51 am »
Fellow Riders....



[bNote*****as of September 17th, I will have moved out of Swaziland and unfortunately, cannot offer a place to stay for fellow riders. Sorry friends. Enjoy riding in the kingdom. It's a beautiful, interesting the country. Safe travels!![/b]


I am a US Peace Corps volunteer. Having been an active long distance adventure rider back home, I now live in rural NW Swaziland and am moto-less (Peace Corps policy doesn't allow for me to ride or own a bike.)

Nevertheless, I want to put out the offer to any riders looking for a place to stay. I live near the village of Dvokolwako (half way between Manzini and the Matsamo border crossing) several km's down a decent dirt road.

My place is modest but there's room enough.

If you're interested, feel free to send me a message.

Safe travels,
Aroundandout

Thanks for the offer, will keep it in mind. Not allowed to ride a bike is cruelty of the highest order.
If I ever make use of your offer you are welcome to take my bike for a ride.
