Jason (+ Bike in Europe / - Bike in West Africa)

Jason +/- Bike travel blog
Dear close personal friends

Thanks to everyone who has left a message! If you haven't left a message yet, please do so soon because I'm almost home. After spending June to October cycling in northern Europe and then October to March backpacking in West Africa, I'm on my way home and will be back in Bunbury by the end of March.

West Africa journal & photo update: Oct 17,2005 to Jan 3, 2006 (Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, The Gambia, Mauritania & back to Senegal) - complete; Jan 3 to Mar 16, 2006 (The Gambia, Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin, Togo & Ghana) - Text & Photos yet to be added. I lost impetus in my daily journal writing long ago, but I hope to write country summaries soon. My camera broke shortly after arriving in Benin, so not many for that country and none thereafter.

My equipment, like myself, has been slowly wearing out. I lost my hat (left in an internet cafe) and thieves cut holes in my tent (while I was sleeping, but only lost my wallet containing about Oz$10). I'm ready to come home.

NB: The photo of myself with a much better known West Australian traveller (Ernie Dingo, Great Outdoors) was a chance meeting in Djenne, Mali - Thank you to Martin Heller & my brother Cameron who answered my call to crop the photo and others who said they would assist if needed.

Anyway I have to keep traveling ...
