Remarks: Good show, I'm jealous....... I grew up in Senegal (along with my wife) since age 12. Our parents were missionaries there but I'm grateful for the chance to experiance other cultures and want the same for our kids. I'm also involved in an MK (missionary kid) website called 'www.thesamemudd.com" . We have 68 members so far and guests are more than welcome. Check out Monkey Business - my monthly newsletter. I find it magical the way that Africa gets under the skin of any foreigner who has the privelege of living there for any amount of time. Even if you are gone for a long period of time, it takes only one whiff of a smell, one note of a soukous song, one sentence in a foreign african dialect - and you are transported instantly to another time................

Through Nirger and Nigeria (or Niger and Chad) we want to go to the Central African Republic. My question is how easy (or difficult) it is to travel around these countries, how good are the roads, and what kind of transportation is best to use. After we've visited the Central African Republic, we wnat to go to South Afrika. Probably about the same route as you did. Which countries are good to travel through and whitch are harder. Is there public transport (busses, trains, whatever) and how long did it take you approximately to travel from the central african republic to South Africa. I'm looking forward for your answer.

Remarks: Hello,
I'm Irene, 17 years old. By accident I came upon your homepage and started reading bits and pieces. Judging from your Ducth-English way of writing I figured you were Dutch (like I am) and I was I found it to be funny that I was right. I just wanted to say that I think it's a really nice homepage. And what a great initiative to go biking through Afrika. And clearly enjoying yourself so much! I grew up in Afrika myself - I lived in Zambia and Malawi from my first till my eighth year. And now that I'm in my final year of highschool and allmost going to the university (I'm planning on studying medicine) I have been thinking of travelling through Africa myself. But probably I'll will visit during my study instead. Or if I don't get into the study. Then I'll do some charity work there.
Well to conclude it all. I have a fix on Africa due to my childhood there. And I really love reading about your wonderfull experiences there...
greetings Irene

Remarks: Hello Arold, We had some questions to you about several countries in Afrika. Through Nirger and Nigeria (or Niger and Chad) we want to go to the Central African Republic. My question is how easy (or difficult) it is to travel around these countries, how good are the roads, and what kind of transportation is best to use. After we've visited the Central African Republic, we wnat to go to South Afrika. Probably about the same route as you did. Which countries are good to travel through and whitch are harder. Is there public transport (busses, trains, whatever) and how long did it take you approximately to travel from the central african republic to South Africa. I'm looking forward for your answer. Greetz Esther and Gijs

Remarks: Arold, your site is wonderful. What a fantastic adventure. I am also a motorcycle traveler, but have only tasted a small bit of Africa with a solo trip to Morocco. It is truly an incredible country filled with friendly people. Please consider adding more of your personal observations from your diary. The stories that you do have posted are poignant and very human oriented. You have a gift for capturing what traveling by motorcycle really means. Thank you for sharing it. You mentioned that you might like to travel to Australia. Have you done it yet? I am hoping to get there in the next year or so. I have ridden there once before, so am really looking forward to going back, only this time I will take my own motorcycle. I hope I meet you on the road someday. From your writings, I know I would enjoy your company and your outlook on life. And I will buy the beer! Take care.

Remarks: Hi, I am a teacher in Fresno California and I was looking for some pics for a compare/contrast lesson of children here and in Africa. I found your site and was amazed at your trip. Looks like it was a fun and fulfilling adventure. I was wondering if I could use some of your pictures of the children for my lesson. I am sure they will have an impact on my students hre in in Fresno. I found it interesting the small amount of pictures of girls you were able to take and I am guessing it is because the boys were more readily available because of their ability to go to schooland be out and about, whereas girls were back at their rural homes working there. Interesting indeed. I will respect your decision if you would rather I didn't use them. Looking forward to hearing from you. I hope you post any other trips you take. Happy traveling! Brenda

Opinion: Fantastic
Remarks: I do have to say though that you should'nt feel sorry for the two christians because God leads us where He wants us to go. You may not want to go where God is leading you, but He'll get you there. In the Bible God told Jonah to go to Ninevah and preach to the people and give them a message. Jonah was afraid to go and tried to hide from God, but you can never hide from Him. He sees you at all times. Watching over us. Jonah got on a ship that was headed the very opposite way of Ninevah, but God sent a storm that was going to make the ship sink while Jonah was asleep in the ship. A man came and woke him up. Jonah found out what was going on and he told the men to throw him over into the sea, but they said no and they began to throw their cargo overboard as a gift to their god of the sea. Jonah finally persuaded them to throw him over. As soon as they did a big fish came and swallowed Jonah. Jonah was in the fish's stomach for a few days. Then all of the sudden the fish spit him out on the shore of Ninevah. So you see God puts you where He wants you. God bless you.

Anyway, I am assistant editor of an adventure magazine in South Africa called Out There. I am writing a story on how to survive a motorbike journey in Africa. I am desperate for good pictures and hope that myabe I could use some of yours. We pay quite well (not brilliant but it is good XT petrol money). If you are interested, please send me an e-mail and we can discuss it. Thanks for the inspiration. Cheers Paul

Sincerely, Ben.

The experience of such adventures is unforgettable and its good to share these experiences with other people. Most don't have the chance to get out of the protected life in western "civilisation". Travelling in such worlds always reminds me that happiness is not made out of money or high standards of living but out of the relationship between people and with nature in its true (wild) form.

Ben zelf net terug uit Lfrique 'van een reisje van 4 maanden. Mijn grote wens is echter altijd nog: ZAIRE/CONGO, mijn hart ging sneller kloppen. De trip die jij wilt maken heb ik inmiddels gedaan en ook dat is een droomrit, uiteindelijk overland aanbeland bij de Aboriginals in Down Under, via o.a. Iran, Pakistan, Nepal, Thailand, Maleisie, Singapore. De trip was fantastisch. En het blijft jeuken als ik jou volg op jouw trip door Afrika, lots of luck with the next trip. Trouwens bikkelen op zijn XT500, ik reed naar down under op een tenere, en tegenwoordig met zijn tweeen op een luxe Africa Twin.

I know the Guiness will be better there than in Kenya-- the flavor was a bit off over there don't you think. I did enjoy many a Tusker and Whitecap and Polar, as well as some Ganja I picked up in Nairobi. Happy Travels.

Don't let those computer geeks who comment from their desks bother you. Until you have been awakened from your tent by Hyenas running off with your moto boots, you can't understand. I used a KLR 650 but I think the XT is a great choice. I hope to go again someday as well. I thought your site was great, it brought back some fun memories for me. One of the guy's I went to Africa with has also completed the Victoria , Canada to the tip of South America route. If you need some info I could pass your address on to him.

And what to take for gear on the motorcycle. I am a beginner at all of this I just learned how to ride a bike 2 years ago. So I am afraid to try yet I am willing to go. Please write me back and help me in this. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you. Chris Scanlan

Remarks: I Went on the same kind of type and it was great to read your interpretation of your trip. What a country, I have completly fallen in love with it. I found Nambia incredibly surreal. I worked on Lake Kariba for a bit, waking up to hippo's etc.. One of the most amaxing parts of my trip was that I worked in a rural African school in Kenya. What I found very interesting in my trip was the difference as you move down the coutry, South Africa was western compared to North to the rest. When I went back home after being away for eight months everything was the same and it was very difficult to express the buzzing feeling of the trip to friends and family who had stayed at home.

By the way, the fact that I'm a Nigerian should not prevent you from being truthful (even brutally so).

Do you have any recent information about possibilities to go to Sudan from Egypt and leave towards Eritrea? What else do you think we should know? Do you know of Daan v/d Keur? My traveling partner tried to call him but he did not answer the telefon so we asume he might be on the road. But my friend believes he has a web page, unfortunately I cannot find it. Can you help me? How about your next trip, already fixed plans? It would be nice if you would find the time to answer! In any case: keep the rubber side down and have fun (I have to run to my next lection) Doris

I`m planning to leave with a friend (both on R 100 Gs) to go from North to South Africa along the east cost in Sept. So you can imagine that any kind of information is highly appreciated! Do you have any recent information about possibilities to go to Sudan from Egypt and leave towards Eritrea? What else do you think we should know? Do you know of Daan v/d Keur? My traveling partner tried to call him but he did not answer the telefon so we asume he might be on the road. But my friend believes he has a web page, unfortunately I cannot find it. Can you help me? How about your next trip, already fixed plans? It would be nice if you would find the time to answer! In any case: keep the rubber side down and have fun (I have to run to my next lection) Doris

Remarks: It is a great idea to promote your trip on the Net like that. I to traveled but only in West Africa, from Spain. A great trip except that we had to track back from Morocco to Spain. Simply because the land borders between Morocco and Algeria were closed when we went (last year, in February!) I like the fact that you took some land marks of the Hoggar route, we did not even take a picture of the "balises". Anyhow, I think your site is fun. Question though? When did you go? Thank you.

Opinion: Could Be Better
Remarks: Ik denk dat de foto's die je hebt gemaakt van Afrika (hoewel je maar een deel hebt gezien, want er is ook gigantische rijkdom), dat die toch erg matig zijn. Ook denk ik dat mensen die oorspronkelijk vanuit afrika komen, op zich jouw trip wel aardig zullen vinden... alleen denk ik toch dat je niet moet zeggen dat je in afrika een rondreis hebt gemaakt, zoals de titel zegt. Op zich een leuke reis lijkt me, om te doen als je dit graag zou willen doen, toch moet ik zeggen (objectief) dat deze homepagina een beeld kweekt dat de media ook doet: ruig landschap, mensen halfnaakt, niets dan armoede... nee, ik denk toch dat je de inleiding zou moeten aanpassen. Veel succes verder, je kunt me altijd e-mailen.

Remarks: Having grown up in West Africa, it is always good to hear or read about someone who has taken the courage on gone on such a trip. The first friend I had did it in 1975 on a Honda 125,(Street Model) Nigeria to Europe. A second friend went from Europe to Nigera, and other W.A. countries. Now, before I turn forty, which is not to far off, I along with a friend who also grew up in West Africa are going to make the trip. I have a Honda XL600, Mark a Yam. TT600. So the plans have started, and we will be off sometime in January of '98. Were we go or were we end up time will tell. Great site, now waiting for the yellow dots to be done.

I share a house (Actually I'm in the garden flat) with Dani Cloete and his wife Tani (his the guy in the middel of the foto of the Rondawels. We did actually meet when you were in SA. Once at a party at the Rondawels and a couple of times at a place called Cherries Two where there were some great live music: Jack Hammer and the Backwater Blues Band. You wore a Tshirt with a collage of your fotos in the form of the african continent and smoked black cavendish pipe tobacco. I remember seeing your XT in town and thinkin its a mirracle than this thing can still run. Your home page is just great - it works very well. You may soon get a message from a fiend of mine Paul van Vuuren, also a xt 5t00mechanic, sorry, owner. he was also at the party and at Cheries. He stays in the Eastern Transvaal but I gave him you website. All the best, I'm lookin foreward to the updates and additions. Anton-Louis
