Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page!!

On 26 February 2010 I will be heading off from Australia to South Africa for the beginning of a Trans-Africa motorcycle ride. The plan is to start from South Africa and head up the east coast of Africa eventually ending up in Egypt. The trip is expected to take about 4 months, span over 14000km's and cross through at least 10 countries. Two of my university mates, Richard Kolbe and Andrew King, will be joining me for part of the way, but the rest will be solo!
