We are a German speaking couple, Eric and Alexandra, who started in 2009 from Europe to cross Africa in a camper van for 4 months. Read our blog about Crossing Africa. We are middle aged (born in 1960 and 1973) and love traveling since our early years. When we met we started to travel in Europe quite a lot, and in 2009 the idea started to cross Africa. Meanwhile, although planned completely different, we are continuously on tour since 2009 with our meanwhile 12 years old dog Tara. As our plans changed, we had to change our income situation as well, finding new ways to earn money. Read our story here in this blog about our journey.
