This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

More Overlanders

As I've mentioned before, I've already met some Overlanders in Togo who have driven from Europe - Joel in his VW van; a Dutch couple in their Land Rover en route for Iran via South Africa, and a couple of Land Cruisers full of South Africans travelling to Cape Town from the UK. Today I met a British couple travelling the west and east coasts of Africa, including the corners of West Africa that most overlanders cut off (Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast and Ghana). Great guys. We met in a horrible traffic jam, and I sat in their Landy for 20 minutes chatting before they had to move on. They want to change their clutch before they continue their travels through rainy season, so hopefully I'll be able to help them with that.

Below, a photo of them driving through what is uniquely up-country Liberia! Olly

Awesome! Some Australian surfer overlanders came through Liberia and will release a film called Thrity Thousand (miles, I assume (or is it km?)). I unfortunately never got to cross paths with them, but looks like they've got good cinematography skills, so the film should be great.
