We are a group of like minded folk planning a trip to Tunisia, Sicily, Malta, Sardinia, Corsica and back through France between September – October 2019.
One of our projects is to create a short dance video to include all of the local dance types and language groups we will be meeting (and trying to learn !) along the way.
If you share our interest in language, culture and the arts and you have a few weeks to spare around August / September 2019 why not view the Booking Options and join us for all or part of the adventure; It would be amazing to have you along !!
At between GBP9-GBP20 per day per person* all up this is the cheapest way you will ever get to see Europe and Africa and make lifelong friendships with an amazing group of people. Just compare 20 nights travelling in a Landrover with us to 7 nights in Benidorm– which would you choose ?
Whilst most nights we will be Wild Camping, stopovers in major cities are planned to sample the night life, and swap crews as people fly in and out:
- St Remy-en-Provence
*Cost per day depends on where you join us – the biggest costs are the Car Ferries.
Here are a couple of the most affordable legs available starting from just GBP8.90 per day !
Please let me know if you have any questions or new ideas to add to the plan!
Read On – it gets more interesting….
36 Hairpin Bends near Briancon last year – 33 of which needed 3 point turns ! Oh that wonderful Defender turning circle !
The group includes Dancers, Musicians, Cooks and The World’s Fastest Drummer (2015 Champion!)
This is a non-profit adventure. Our objective is to interact as much as possible with the local people, animals and scenery that we will encounter.
Approximate Cost Per person GBP9 – 20 per day *assume split costs by 5 in each Land Rover
Approximate costs include :
- All camping equipment including tents and sleeping bags
- Food Kitty
- each night we will shop locally for fresh food from farmer’s markets and prepare a well-earned feast for the crew, cooked lovingly over an open fire – volunteer cooks welcome !
- Kitty includes 3EUR/day wine/beer allowance, discounted if you don’t drink !
- Wild Camping
- we will normally find a remote campsite each night either deep in a forest, by a lake or high in the mountains
- Free Dance and Drum Lessons
- Drone footage and a chance to fly the Expedition Drone
- every 5 nights for showers and battery charging
- normally we will wild camp, but if we are in a City we will find the closest campsite to the centre
- Free 4G Wi-Fi and full 240v charging facilities for laptops
- PLUS your name (and your dancing!) on the credits of the video at the end
All you need to bring are clothes, cameras and toiletries !
Can’t join for the whole trip ?
We understand that most people cannot take 6 weeks holiday so why not organise regional flights to join us for a week or two ?
(see Regional Airports map below).
Flights are extra (unless you join us for the while trip) but here are some indicative flight costs from Kiwi
around that period :
London to :
Palermo (Sicily) GBP45
Cagilari (Corsica) GBP50
The attached spreadsheet
is the main planning tool where you can play with dates and vehicle types (it only seems to work if you download it as Excel).
Go to the Sheet called “Summary” and there are 2 options :
a/ Enter the Dates you can join us
This will tell you roughly where we will be on that day and you can organise regional flights to join us (see Regional Airports map below)
b/ Select your preferred start and end towns from the pulldown list
This will tell you roughly which day we will be in that location and you can organise regional flights to join us. (see Regional Airports map below)
Options include #of people and vehicle type.
There are a few projects planned by various parties on the “Expedition”, which we are still trying to crystallise into a plan!
In no particular order :
– Trying to visit as many Megalithic Sites as possible, experimenting with the Expedition Drone :
– Learning as many local dance types and languages as we can along the way, and making a short music video maybe ? similar to this one made by our friends Dirk and Bettina and inspired by the African scenery and music
– Raising funds for some direct action charities in the countries we will be visiting
August 2020 : 70 Countries ! yes that’s every country West of the Urals except Vatican City plus Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco .
