I travelled the world for almost five years. My experience is not to plan too much. If you sleep in hostels and campsites, you will meet very kinds of people who all have intersting stories where to go next (and why). Better than any tour book!

You have a 28" wheel in your hand on the last pic right smile

I'm not a planner myself, I always just have the direction in mind and know more or less what I can expect in that direction but that's it mostly. These days Google Maps is of great help as it gives me a pretty good idea whether an area is densely populated or not. I try to avoid the former. by blackSP

Silbertanne.
I am fully agreed with your statement :
"I travelled the world for almost five years. My experience is not to plan too much. If you sleep in hostels and campsites, you will meet very kinds of people who all have interesting stories where to go next (and why)."
I worked for more than 16 years in Africa and the middle East ( Yemen .Oman Senegal Mali . Mauritania .Rwanda ,Burundi Tanzania Sudan Somalia Ivory coast ) People in these places are very hospitable always able to spend the night . always food. Even when you have little they share it with you. We can learn in Europe from them. However still I go every year to Africa . I feel at home.
I also planning a trip to Morocco soon ( however not organized ) I love to plan myself.
Would be nice to get all the HP2 riders from Holland together for a coffee and ride somewhere in April 2010.

Hello African,
Not in April, but in September we plan on getting max. 12 HP2's together for a tour in former East Germany (Meckelnburg-Vorpommern). You might consider joining:
