Hi everybody, my name is Penny and my husband and I are leaving on the 18th October 2012 from Mossel Bay in the Cape (South Africa)to Cairo and beyond. Beyond meaning the middle east but that all depends on the political situation in Syria. We will be touring with ordinary mountain bikes and towing Carry Freedom Y frame trailers. We will be camping all of the time (budget) and cooking our own food.
Our route will be:
Up the Cape West Coast
Namibia and along the Caprivi Strip
It would be awesome to meet up with fellow tourers and swap notes and say hi.
