West Africa

From December 2017 to March 2018 we were riding 2up in West Africa

On our first motorcycle journey around Africa we had to make a lot of decisions, like where to go, and where not to go. The "not to go" part was hard. On a trip like that, like in any aspect of life, one learns to accept limits. There is never enough time, enough money, or enough stamina to do it all. And that's OK.
We had been hoping ever since to return and explore some of those countries that got away. West Africa, you see, is such a densely populated, intense, diverse place. So here we were, packed and ready to go into some of its unknown (to us) corners.

In focus: the coastal countries of West Africa that span the Gulf of Guinea, from Senegal to Ghana.
