    Hello Nic,
    Been great following some of your adventures. Lovely memories for me. Just to let you know Grant and Angie are back in the UK 🙂 I am very delighted.
    Travel safely

    • That’s great News Jackie!! I’m sure you are all a lot happier now! Still a long way south, and with temperatures of 45, we praying for rain and milder temperatures further south.
      You guys keep well,
      Nic, Nicky, lily

  2. About to drive from Wales to Nanyuki, Kenya in a Defender. Curious about your mention of carnets as we have been told they are not necessary??? Also any particular reason you didn’t take the shorter route to Egypt via Italy and Libya? Lots of great information. Thank you for keeping up your journal! Peter

    • HI Peter,
      You’ll NEED one, they check at every border post for one, so you’ll need one. Also see if you can get one through Germany? I hear they could be cheaper! Thanks Nic

    • Hi there Peter,
      There are shorter solutions, but we had a baby and we not sure how safe Libya is? But yes, a boat to Egypt or Lib would be shorter…
