Bon Voyage

Yes the shipping fees to Africa are large. But it is part of my trip.... was committed to continuing my Journey!

Cannot take the money with you when you die

Mark, I have been following this ride for two years now. Its time I post something about your trip. It certainly has been fun to see you go where you go and meet the people along the way. I can't wait for Africa. Thanks

Hey Mark,
Last night was awesome!

For a "presentation virgin", you did a fantastic job and I know all of the BMW club members and guests, HUBB guys & girls really enjoyed your talk. The photos and movies were truly inspirational..

Thanks for taking the time to hangout and talk bikes 'n bullshit whilst you were here in Western Australia.

Thanks must go to Rob & Di and others for their support and hospitality....

I really enjoyed riding and hanging out, drinking tea and eating ANZAC biscuits in our winter sunshine.

Lego Jorge says "Hi".......

Stay safe 'bro and go well

Davey.............

Well its been a great couple of weeks hosting Radioman.
It was a great presentation he gave last night to over fifty people. Mark started the presentation with amazing footage of his journey with Chris and then went on to show and explain his journey around the world.
Its been a pleasure and a privilege to have you stay Mark - enjoy Africa and I'm sure you'll have an amazing time - African hospitality is legendary and all those animals - awesome. And with your new camera we will be waiting for more stunning pictures.
Till we see you on the road next - cheers Rod and Di

Flew out of Perth on Emirates.



On the way....



Making a stop in Dubai



Landed here as part of the routing. Funny is my bike was here while shipping from Buenos Aires to Auckland..... So now I am.



Decided to take a layover in Dubai. Why? Why Not? Worlds Tallest building, Indoor skiing, 43 degree heat!, Souks, Made made islands..... Had to take a look.

Did they have a full flight and offer a credit or cash for you to "bump" to the next flight? I've always wanted to do that -- never have been picked.
