A small island off the coast of Aswan is our stop for the next few days. A haven by the beautiful Nile, its 600 residents mainly Nubian have made us feel so at home. Our bikes and kit got shuttled across on the boat by our crazy cool host Ziggy.

We were very lucky to meet the amazing Sam and Mark who have been traveling around Africa for the past two years in their amazing home on wheels. Starting in South Africa they have driven up the whole west side of Africa and were in Aswan the same time as us. Their tri...

It took over four hours of sitting around the Sudan consulate in Aswan to submit our forms for our Sudanese visa. Luckily we enjoyed great company and met a German couple who have travelled their whole lives in crazy places and the wonderful Anna we chilled with the ne...

We finally made it to Aswan, the end of our Egyptian trip! Time to see Abu Simbel, apply for our Sudanese Visa and take a few days to plan Sudan.

We greeted Luxor with open arms. The Nile brought greenery and wildlife which we had been missing after days in the desert. Luxor also brought Marian, Dee's sister, who flew out with new panniers and took away the Bob trailers. Cycling would get a whole lot easier!

The infamous tail wind helped us clock up 100km after 100km all the way down the Red Sea to Safaga where we took a much needed rest day. Everywhere we go we get greeted with 'Welcom welcom' and 'Agala Agala', Egypt you are great!

We have met some great people while cycling through Egypt. The bike makes us vulnerable but this isn't a bad thing, it makes us more approachable. Day Three cycling into the small 'petrol' town of Ras Gharib we needed to find accommodation somehow. We were lucky to mee...

Taking the Eastern Desert Road meant some nights of wild camping. Day two on the bike was another low with Dee having a bad fall being pulled by Bob on a downhill. Despite surface wounds, road burns and a bashed knee we managed to cycle 75km and set up camp just after...
