Hi

We are currently travelling from the UK to Oz, so far we have travelled through 22 countries about 30,000, for 7 months through EU, Turkey, Central Asia, Pakistan and are currently in India, where we will ship to Malaysia. We will spend 6 Months in SE before heading to Oz.

Our biggest hurdles so have been:
1) New Rad going in Turkey - Cost a fortune to have shipped and imported
2) Not getting an Iranian Visa, this meant we had to re route quickly through Central Asia
3) Crossing Northern Pakistan & the KKH

Please feel free to browse our blog and photos:

Hi All

We are currently in Java, heading towards Bali, before backtracking over to Borneo, 4- 5 months  before we hit Oz and start our planning for South to North America!

For us to be able to continue to South America, we are looking for a little sponsorship, to help us complete the trip.
The things we really need to complete our trip to South America are new tyres, full service of the car, new tent, new gps, other camping gear, even new clothes; not to forget money for shipping.

If anyone could help out i.e if you have any contacts that could help us get a few sponsors ? Or point us in the right direction? It would be really appreciated.

Latest updates below:

Indonesia - North Sumatra

Indonesia - West Sumatra

Hi All

Just to let you know we are still on the road, After Australia we spent 3 great months in NZ before shipping to the states. (were just updating the blog for NZ so hopefully in a few days we will have all the photos up Smile)

We up central USA to Canada, and then back down the west coast to and into Baja Mexico.

We are in Mexico, thankfully in the mountains away from the dust and heat Smile

Some photos from our trip to Tequila Mexico  More Photos (click the link for more photos)

If you were wondering,

Yes we are still travelling, after Colombia we head all the way down south to Ushuaia. From Buenos Aires we shipped to Durban and travelled through Africa (South Africa, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt etc).

We made out out from Egypt to Cyprus and our now in Turkey.

As you can imagine we have 1000's of photos to go through, here a few from Bolivia,
