Re: Drive to Gambia

Will you take a route through Libya on Swiss plates?

..no particularly....I have a friend from Gambia...and he told me that it's nice there...and thus I figured I should give it a go. Flying would be easier, but it's so 2009...I'd rather go for something new.

hmm...I would be freer in a few months time and then perhaps. Although I'm not 100% on Gambia per se. What kind of music do you like?

Sounds like a seriously cool plan. I guess this year is not going to be the year for me to do something like this...

Ever since I read about the "Ash, Kent to Tashkent" challenge, I would love to do a roadtrip like this.

As previously mentioned..I'm flexible. I like all sort of music...although my key interest are reggae, latin, some opera, some arabic and hip hop.
What destination would entice you?

My girl and I actually plan to head to Amsterdam again in a few weeks. It's fairly cheap around this time of the year.

How old are you by the way? Being a dashing young man in my early twenties, I wouldn't feel very safe with a beardy weirdy old man

I'm 28...generally, I'm about a person's character and not about the age. There are some fellow youngens who are pretty weird as well
