We finally arrived in Rome, some 1600km into our journey. This was one of the big milestones of the journey and a good test run for what could only be a bit more of a challenging road ahead.
Just hanging out in Rome
Italy was a great place to visit and we had good food, wine, met great people and had two of the best camps yet.
One of the only campsites open. We even had our own balcony.
We had to have a sea side braai.
Semi wild camping in front of a closed restaurant right in front of the beach.
Whilst in Rome, we had two of our backup wildbikerider crew join us. Both Anja and Chris was an instrumental part of our operation to get to Africa. They brought some important spares for the bikes (these may not be readily available in Africa) and a whole lot of medic and malaria paraphernalia. We also ate good food enjoyed the sights of Rome and had to have some celebratory drinks.
The next stop was Cairo. So after quite a bit of logistics of collecting bike boxes on a bike and packing our oversized and overweight bicycles, we managed to get a large enough taxi to the airport.
