This is a new interesting video by Kinga (On her Bike) - on all that is need for such a trip from finances, insurance, medical insurance, food, accommodation - in Part 1.

Enjoy planning for your next round the world/cross continent trip.

This is now part 2 - dealing with luggage, equipment and upgrades on a bike, transport, etc.

Just what we need to dream and plan that next long trip, or round the world trip!

The longer this lockdown continues the more I want to travel! I think a shoestring budget trip somewhere exotic after things have returned back to normal is in order :ricky:

Thanks for sharing.

I believe that for a long time, perhaps years, after this virus, international travel may be highly regulated, with lots of new hoops to jump through.

So, start getting ready for exploring our own country properly.

Lucky for us there's so much to see and do just in SA. I also don't think the restrictions will be lifted any time soon. At least it gives us lots of time to plan things. Hopefully our Rand won't be completely ruined by then or we won't get very far anyway :P :(

So much to see in this most beautiful of countries, indeed!  I am planning a lekker loooong trip through SA later this year, in SA's "nice" time, before the worst summer heat, and after the winter cold.

If you need company for (part of) that, or only accommodation when in Snorstad, holler please!
