Africa 2012 with Charley Boorman

Greetings everyone!

It's that time of the year again.. when Charley and his gang [Motoaventures!] are ready to take off on a lovely 2+ weeks, 5k km adventure in South Africa, Namibia and Zambia.

I'm participating as a rider - first time in Africa as well.

The departure is in ~40minutes - everything is pretty much set.. I'll try to write more as Internet is available and fingers can still move in a somewhat coherent manner! (-:


Cheers,
Bogdan Alexander M [aproape]


P.S. Pictures will be added shortly [well, shortly as in a quite relative/relaxed term.. Hakuna Matata!]

Aproape -

As a 2011 alumni of this awesome ride, I want to wish you all the best as you begin your adventure. If it's anything like our experience, you will come out of it with life-long memories and friendships.

Su, John, Charley and Billy are incredible hosts - please send them my regards.

Thank you for letting us re-live this trip through your eyes. I look forward to your story.

Best,
Tim James
