Solveig’s contribution.


We’re on the road again……..Oh, my word, the wonderful world of freedom. Leaving behind a life of “stuff” and busyness and business. We are so trapped in our beautiful homes and surrounded by our material things.
Silver to polish???? Clean, wash, dust, ironing etc. etc. ……..How about no broekies, no bra,  no makeup, I do wear a dress, skirt or  sarong though.
One knife, fork, spoon each. One plate, one bowl. The liberating feeling and even letting go of “happy” pills and power surge mutis! Teaching me patience. The freedom to explore the beauty of nature (and oh my God, it really is beautiful) and chat and smile with strangers. No hidden agendas and not too preoccupied and busy!!


Takes us 10 minutes to unpack and set up camp. What a pleasure, when we watch others taking ages to pack up all their stuff.  Each to their own I guess.
It probably won’t be all plain sailing, but are we enjoying the ride!  We have had all kinds of weather – hell hot, cool days, rainy and extreme wind which made car rock ‘n roll.  Felt like our cradle was being rocked!!!. Had lots of mossies and flies at certain places – training us for what’s coming. I think malaria is our only real concern for what lies ahead.  But practicing now with candles, tabard, peaceful sleep etc.  Oh and Doom for flies.


Our world is amazing.  It is all beautiful and special.  The coastline stunning with huge rocks,  sometimes gentle sometimes wild seas. Who knows what the future hold but at this stage I am ecstatically happy, love my man. Hope his beard softens – 10 days old. Definitely no smooching! !!! Love the simplicity. Woohoo what a ride, red wine in one hand and ciggie in other (naughty, I know. …… maybe I can give up on the journey) shouting screaming ……   “WHAT A RIDE”

Author: Ian & Solveig's Overland Adventures

Although we never achieved our original goal of reaching Norway overland through Africa, our experience was so unexpectedly rewarding that we've not been able to settled down again! So we added new destinations to our lust for adventure. We hope that you will join us in sharing new exciting places and encounters with the amazing people we meet along the way.
