A guy I know from Knysna is busy doing something so awesome that I go green with envy just thinking about it. He and a mate are cycling from Morocco, through West Africa, across to East Africa, down through Central Africa, and all the way home to sunny South Africa. His route is about 22,000 km (about 13,600 miles) and they are budgeting on taking about a year.
They started in early February so they are are still (last time he posted to his site) making their way across the Sahara. He has already had some awesome experiences and his stories really tempt me to pack up the corporate life and do something crazy.
Until then I will have to make to with Cecil’s diary and pics. Click to the thumbnails to view higher res images.
