The first of many of the real Adventures
27th april 1996 - 10th May 1996

Map of places visited

This would be the first of a long line of Adventures on the motorbike. A step away from civilisation and into the unknown.

From this point forward standard travel would never be the same again. It took planning to the next level, no more breakdown recovery, you are on your own.
