READ OUR RTW TRAVEL BLOG
...well, at least the preparation stage & first 4 months of travel anyway! As time permits, we'll get back to uploading entries. Our blog, called Two-up On A Twin, is written in a He Says/She Says style & covers the 17-month trip that OverlanderAE's owners, Tam & Xander Kabat, did in 2009-2010 through Europe, Africa & SE Asia. Our travel beast was Anubis, a Honda Africa Twin XRV750 (RD07A, year 2000), which is still Xander's travel bike & most-days commute with around 300,000km on the clock :-)
