Trip From Holland to South Africa Part 3
The initial plan was to go from Europe to Afrika via ferry from Sicily to Tunisia then Libya. But after numerous Libyan visaI decided why bother? Is full of sand and guys with bad hair anyway.
So next plan was to take the well established Athens to Alexandra ferry. I'd read accounts in several motorbike books as well as on blogs.
No probs, shoot down to Greece and hop on the ferry.
However when I thought I'd better check on the times (to see how frequent it was) it turned out to be not very frequent. Like VERY infrequent. Like not running anymore.
Hmmm.....

Alan on a HP@ from Holland to South Africa
Well, this is almost as fun as hearing about MIke and Danny going off to shoot at inflatable plastic turkeys.
I mean where else can you go roaring along at high speed on a big german motorbike down an almost empty three lane highway in the sunshine???
Without any police around either, at least none I saw.
