Edwina Grace Storie Hello! I'm a business travel writer (and freelancer on the side) and I'm going to be in Africa for a work from late Feb to mid March. After my work schedule I have time off to travel between 1-13 March. Would it be possible if I come along for the ride for a week or two? I can meet at any city - will fly in from Jo'burg. Or are you unsure of specific dates that you'll be in destinations? - Edwina

utrippin Hi! What's the next stage? I arrive in South Africa March 31. I plan to travel Africa overland, up to Kenya, through Egypt, then likely on to the Middle East. I'll be in Africa several months with no set schedule. Planned on using public transport and the occasional car hire. Would love to meet up with your group or join if there is still space. Visited your site. Outstanding photos. Haven't read/translated to English yet though.

Arek Arkatar – instead of sitting at home and writing such foolishness please follow our trip here: http://www.podniesinski.pl/portal/?p=4372 And we are not 3 persons in one car but even 4. Not possible? Stop reading books or listening others opinions and go anywhere first. For all Troopers following - after one month we are currently in Mali. And everything is fantastic!! Arek
