Our first stop in Ethiopia was Gondar which quickly became our favourite town to date. Small but well equipped it had everything we needed for some quality rest days. Great restaurants, great scenery and great company. We stayed at Yohannes Guest House where we were fortunate to meet lots of overlanders and cyclists doing Cairo to Cape also. From Gondar we went on a day trip to the stunning Simien Mountains and flew to Lalibella where we spent time at the magnificent monolithic rock churches- a definite highlight to date.
