Petra And A Quick Travel Overview
We are now in the middle east and tomorrow we will continue our trip and set foot on Africa. For all who have joined shortly this blog I'll give you a quick overview of the travel route.
On January 2nd we've left Austria by train to reach Cape town 90 days later. We will use all kind of transport to get there except a plane. Until now we have visited or transited the following countries:
The next countries will be:
This is more or less a rough estimate of the route. We are flexible to react on the political and social situations on the way and we will decide what's best for us. Tomorrow we'll take a ferry to Egypt and stay there for a while. Our most important mission is to get a ferry ticket from Egypt to Sudan. It's important to get the tickets as quickly as possible because the ferry operates once a week only. We have to enter Sudan quickly because of the strict visa regulations. The visa is only valid for 30 days and it was quite a job to get it issued in Austria.
Today I will finally be able to upload the first photos to the picture gallery :))
