Blog: Motorcycle Travel Around the World

I blog roughly each week about my motorcycle travel around the world and generally what's going on. Sometimes it's about motorcycle riding, and other times it's about anything else that is happening. Sign up to the email list for notifications about new blog posts.

My experience in Rwanda and Uganda has involved lots of rain! Apparently, the weather is unusual for this time of year. Unfortunately, I have not spent much time in Rwanda because I have whizzed through to avoid the rain. I did enjoy some riding though, so here's a video taken whilst riding in Ugand...

After a straight-forward crossing into Uganda, I was in.

Stopping in Kisoro, I abandoned the 15-strong queue at the ATM to avoid overheating in my waterproof liners since I was under direct sunlight.

Instead, I purchased a SIM card. This is where I met Emmanuel. We got chatting, and he invit...

After crossing the border to Rwanda, I withdrew cash from an ATM, and a group of 15-20 people swarmed me whilst getting back on my motorcycle. Very friendly and they spoke some English. They were just curious and wanted to say hi!

I rode through the capital Kigala, which was fascinating to see...

One of the many great things about riding around the world on a motorcycle is meeting people. Multiple people recommended a place to stay on the North coast of Tanzania because the resort was run by a biker. Turns out he is also called Steve! Their place at Fish Eagle Point is beautiful, and you...

I offer my apologies for no recent updates. Thank you to those who contacted me to see how I am getting on and for the gentle nudge! So, time for a blog post...

Tanzania has been slow paced for me, mostly because a tourist visa is 50 USD for three months. Incredibly good value considering Nigeria...

I've been a bit quiet recently, so just checking in! Finding noteworthy and interesting content feels like a challenge sometimes.

Crossing the border into Tanzania was a breeze. No issues!

The luscious landscape was a good indicator that the climate has changed after the border. Within a few hou...

At the Malawi border, a computer problem at customs delayed my importation paperwork. The customs officer smiled at my offer of technical support and waved me into the office. Unfortunately, I couldn't help, but the problem seemed resolved when I was given my temporary import permit.

Many have rec...

A friend had given me contact details of a guy living on Lake Kariba who also rides. It just so happened that my planned route would run passed his house, so I called into say hello.

Keen to use my dirt tyre off-road, I left the tarmac just after Kalomo. The gravel road gradually deteriorated maki...

There are Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and I visited one of those today -- Victoria Falls. It's a very touristy area.

The water level was low, which can be seen in the photos and video below. A rainbow appeared with very vivid colours. The brightest I've ever seen. Probably because I was so...

My rear shock was weeping oil. Not good! Discussing this with my cousin's neighbour, Greg Stead, he suggested someone who would know best how to fix it in Harare. As it happens, I was meeting that bloke ("oak" in Zimbabwe), Graeme Sharp, the next day for lunch.

Graeme Sharp also rides, which is a...
