“Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled”. – Mohammed.


Over the next 8 days we covered 4784km, those that know these roads will confirm that this formidable leg involves plenty of hard work and concentration.


Home where the music’s playing,

Home where my dogs lie waiting,

Silently for me…….


Zanzibar, Union Beach Bungalows, Nungwi (northwestern Zanzibar). Tuesday 5 – Thursday 7 January 2016. Week 35, days 262 - 264.



"We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started

And know the place for the first time." -- T.S. Eliot


GEEKS. Zanzibar, (Tanzania) Tembo House Hotel, Stone Town. Saturday 2 January 2016. Week 34, day 259.

There are a few choices of getting to Zanzibar from the northern Tanzanian coast (i.e. north of Dar es Salaam). Our first objective was to avoid Dar, we had had enough of busy and chaotic African cities and we had received countless warnings about driving conditions in Dar, expected to be worse over the festive season. I am a little sorry that we did not take the most adventurous choice of crossing by dhow. Anne is prone to sea sickness but on the few dhow trips we had whilst on Zanzibar she has not fluttered an eyelid.
