Timbuktu Travels

I am off to Timbuktu in next month of a new adventurous expedition (yes really) with 20 others. We depart on December 27th 2006, leaving the British winter behind, heading (driving) south to the vast expanse of Africa, and Timbuktu, back home toward the end of Jan 07’.

New year will be in Sidi Ifni, a very remote old fishing town half way down Morocco, should be bliss…

The Spanish atmosphere and the Art Deco architecture ( Sidi Ifni) are two reasons to visit this coastal town. It was not too long ago, 1969, that Spain relinquished its enclave. It sits on a cliff top and is full of fantastic architecture and ironwork.

This is the forth such adventure I have embarked upon, see the Bangers and Travels gallery for previous trip photos.

We will drive are entirely inappropriate age-ravaged cars on a journey of over 4,500 miles, crossing inhospitable terrain and hoping to surpass any difficulties that we may face.

We aim to raise lots of cash for the Stroke Association.

More to follow!
