Schalk my maat, jy leef nou darem n droom leefstyl. Hoe lank is jy al weg? Kan jy nog Afrikaans verstaan?

Dis pragtig om te sien hoe netjies,ordelik en beskaafd daai lande is. Ons kan maar net droom en dit deur jou o ervaar.

The bike looks a bit loaded but apart from all my camping gear I carried 40 books which I was selling on the way to help finance the trip.

The road ends here until mid summer when they open it after the snow has melted. The frozen lake on top.

Hi Johan Ek was 3 maande weg agv van die Visa maar het 18 000 km in 10 weke gery. Ja daar is absoluut disipline in al die Europese lande. Alles is skoon en die mense respekteer mekaar. Ja ek het baie Afrikaans in Holland gepraat en hulle het ges as ek nog 'n week langer gebly het sou ek vlot Hollands praat.

Hi Outbones die een was so R 200 vir die aand en R 15 vir die stort. Die een in Bern was 'n bietjie duurder.
