Some time has now passed since my last footsteps in Africa yet the one man travel plan lives on as I try to write up my experiences and hone my travel writing talents with the aim of publishing and funding more odessies of curiosity.

As well as the writing side I am organsing exhibitions of photgraphs and paintings from my trip, partly for their asthetic beauty and partly so I can share and hopefully inform people about some lesser known parts of the world.

And then there is always the next trip... the journey never ends.

Planing For The Big Trip

Its taken a good six weeks of solid preparation to get everything ready.

This is all the stuff Ive gotta take and carry for months in the hot sun. I try to travel light but this is all essential stuff like my camcorder, camera, cables, lens cleaning kit, first aid, ect.

These are my business cards I designed and hope to give to people as I travel in the hope of gaining support for my project, the One Man Travel Plan.

This is my ingenious camcorder bag made from a water proof umbrela case.
Theres a see thruogh plastic bit so you can see what your doing.

This is a security measure. Its a length of chain from a hardware store with key rings runing along it to adjust its length. At the end is a climing clip thing to tether it to my trousers so as to keep it safe. Thats the theory anyway.

This is a seccret compartment for my camcorder that I am working on.
