The Route

Leaving from Saham Hills in Norfolk, we will cycle to Harwich and catch the ferry to the Hook of Holland, hopefully locate the Rhine and follow it all the way to Basel in Switzerland. From there we hope to join Eurovelo Route 6, which will take us along the Danube to the Black Sea in Romania.
From Romania we will drop down into Bulgaria, cross into Turkey, down to Syria and Jordan, and eventually enter Africa via a ferry into Egypt.
From Egypt we will cross into Sudan, brave the Nubian desert and continue heading south into the mountains of Ethiopia.
Assuming we survive that far we will enter Kenya and worry about the rest of the route from there!
