Baie dankie vir jou skrywe. Ek het Lodie de Jager se ervarings deur Afrika gelees en ... dit was geweldig interessant om nog 'n perspektief op die trans - Afrika togte te kry.

Ek? Ek is, omstandiglik, 'n "armchair traveller" tot einde 2012. Dis egter waardevolle 'huiswerktyd'.

Groete en voorspoed!

Thanks for a great read and for the reminder that at the end its all about the adventure of riding.
All the talk of makes, models, gadgets and gear is just an excuse to keep in touch between courses.
Well done.

Hi Frohan, ek het dit nou baie geniet om te lees. Tans hier werksaam in Nigerie, en van die koerubsie soos wat jy gehad het, is daar well hier in Nigerie, maar nou nie naastenby soos wat jy gehad het nie! Wil ook nie baie graag hier in die tronk sit nie.
Jou storie ispereer n mens om maar so Afrika trip op n mens se bukket list moet sit.
Dankie vir die, dit was nou lekker om so op n sondagoggend voor werk deur te lees :thumleft: Maak die tyd vinniger hier verbygaan.
Meskien sien ons mekaar erens daar in Stellies.

Groete,
Yami
