Hi Tiffany, I'm Kevin from Australia. Just stumbled upon your thread and have now subscribed to it. I was over there myself a few months ago and had a great time, but I wasn't camping out and doing it as rough and ready as yourself. I think that you have an amazing free spirit to do so.
Saw your youtube trailer and now understand what an experienced adventure rider you are. Well done on everything you have managed to achieve thus far. Commitments at home here in Australia have prevented me from undertaking that long journey a lot of us only dream about. Stories like yours are inspiring for the majority of us caught in the 9 to 5 world. You're living the dream .. go girl!
Now that centipede bite would have scared the bejesus outta me, so well done on gutsing that out. And you couldn't even bring yourself to harm a bug like that LOL.. very kind!
The Malagasy people are lovely, aren't they? Here are a few of my links. Some photos I just uploaded to the Smugmug photo sharing site, and some video footage of my own trip in 2 parts.
Stay safe and happy trails for the rest of the journey.
