    .. and the tour is done! Unfortunately.

    Sad.. Seems like it ended too soon.

    I have (we all do!) lots of great memories, new friends and quite a few skills and experience condensed in just over two weeks.

    I'm still in Zambia at the moment - for two more days - first day without riding feels strange :-)

    I'll start adding the days reports very soon along with LOTS of pictures and some movies.

    Stay tuned!


    Cheers,

    Good morning everyone!

    Ok - after a few other bumps [laptop SSD crashed, data recovery in progress] - I am back on the track. Seems like I am riding a sandy digital road now! ;-)

    So.. first teaser.. Cape Town - aerial view!

    We took a helicopter ride and the pilot was kind enough to allow me to open the window and take these shots.. so - here you go!

    Hello everyone,

    Just realized that adv doesn't automatically resize the pictures - I'll re-upload them in a much friendlier format [800 width?] and continue the editing. I was hoping there is an automatic resizing/lightbox functionality for linked pictures - maybe someone sees this and makes it happen! ;-)


    Cheers,

    Have a nice ride and experience. No matter where we ride the feeling is expectacular. I'm leaving to s/america in december.
    Looking forward to see pix………..
