Looks like they wanted to stick to civilization and the colonies. Every one of the places they passed through probably sells gin.

It must have been a most excellent adventure, even though it looks a bit like the chicken route :wink:  :P

Looks like they enjoyed the cruise ships more than the riding.

But damn, what an adventure.

unbeknownst to many, hitlers hatred for poland, and polish jews in particular, was directly caused when a polish jewish petrol attendant unwittingly put low grade petrol instead of high octane into hitlers' motorcycle, during a sigh seeing trip in the 1920's, resulting in sluggish performance for the rest of the trip.  :lol:

You have to give it to him... he was a marketing GURU...he managed to convince a huge amount of people to try and ERASE a religion from the face of the earth...it takes some passion to force your personal beliefs onto a people using polotical propoganda.

She did good! This is a part of her journal concerning South Africa:

"" To chek out what the South Africans would like me to be and posesed before I would be allowed to enter their precious country, I swung by the South African High Comission in Islamabad. Being told I would need a visa I returned next day with the filled up form, a photograph, the photocopy of sufficient funds, insurance and international driving licence.

Huge surprise, as until the next day they had changed either their minds or the low and told me the visa was surely not requred for Slovene cityzens. Traveling for quite some time have tought me a simple golden rule (that does not necessarely work out all the time...) not to trust anyone completely, especialy if they are governmental officials, biroctars, customs or any other "paper dealing" people.

So I requested the letter stating whatever I was told. The letter was issued and off I was, keep adventuring (not even aware to what extend...).

....

Dubai airport. The bike is ready to be put on the same plane as I will fly with to Johannesburg. For 700$ including airfare, crating and all additional expenses. After a smooth and organised procedure I was released all went well. The bike was on board and I took a taxi to the terminal. We will be laving in a couple of hours.

Chek in brought a huge surprise - can not be exepted on the flight as I need a entry visa for South Africa and do not have it in my passport. I almost feated in front of the counter! Pulling out the letter from South African High Commision did not help much. Calling the telephone number for the immergencis on South African konsulat in Dubai did not work, as the fricks were holidaying.

Needless to say I was furious to death and no less determined I wont leave the konsulate before I do not have a required visa in my passport.
Waiting from 6 a.m. in front of the door they were positively warned on their arrival I was ready for a battle with no chance to lose this one. And they were right. No hassle, no troubles, accepted their mistakes and issued a visa in one short hour. Not much questions, just a sorrow. Fair enough they did not a single argument to lean on. Just gave them instruction that I want one single visa for a duration of 6 month, multiple entry, no charge. It was accepted with the smile on the secretarys face and warm wish that I should have a pleasent stay in her countrly.

I better do! I have deserved it after so much troubles coused by the highly disorganised, probably iliterate poeple that South African authosirys let working and present their country.

Very curiously ready to explore the very last continet of the globe. ""

I  then left for Lesotho, for some fun in the mountains. I did avoid eating cat though (I was told this is a great local delicacy). Lesotho was beautiful, a tiny country and really unspoiled


Unbelievable she did not get the rock treatment :D

You know... that could become a popular phrase.
Three words to describe a whole scenario.
