Dan and Claire on Sabbatical!!

Welcome to our blog, we hope you enjoy following our adventures!
We split our sabbatical in 2 parts:
Part 1 was from March to June 2010 touring around in our campervan in France and Spain.
Part 2 started on the 7th of July when we left Scotland to cycle through Europe and the Middle East to Africa in the remaining 6 months (back for Xmas).
Have a look at the route below and we'll try to post pics as much as we can!


Cycle Route to Africa

14 Sep 2010

Our first video

Here's our first video, it covers one 24 period from our 4th sucessive day in the Bulgarian hills, passing the 4000km mark and entering into Turkey...we were in need of a rest :o)

We can't vue it, as all video seems to be banned in Turkey. Would be good to know if others can see it? Ta

Hope you liked it!!
