Or Morocco from Spain but I think it can be difficult to get full insurance for there. I have heard you can apply for a 12 mth visa for some Schengen countries that then enables you to stay in the zone for that period but it costs c£200 and you have to demonstrate bank funds etc.

👍 I was hoping it might be non Schengen so could use it to avoid some of the ‘90’!

Thanks, thinking of going in Summer. Is it a Schengen country?

Not been for 20+ years. What’s the security situation when travelling? Ok to use local buses etc?

If you’ve got an iPhone there are lots of free scanner apps. Failing that just take a photo of it in good light on your phone. Then email to your pc and you’ll have a good quality picture to work with if it’s a recent model phone.

I have a twitter game where I try and guess which country the news reports on my timeline are from... ‘Govt conference mission statement -Together for peaceful cattle seasonal movement’. 🤔🤔 I went for Lesotho but it’s actually South Sudan...

What’s the wild camping situation there for a motorhome? Tolerated or is it mainly on aers/sites?

There’s a train of thought which says mass take-up isn’t required. It seems that the first vaccines don’t prevent you getting the virus,they stop it being symptomatic,so there will be no ‘immunity’.Having it protects the vaccinated person, no one else, the opposite to masks.

Have you tried scanning it then having a go with Lightroom?

Guyana (ex Uk Guyana rather than French Guyana) is an unusual place. The only English speaking country in S.America, and the only one with an international cricket team. It’s like a Caribbean country stuck onto South America!

Similar to Guadeloupe and Martinique. Cars have French number plates and essentially it’s part of France. They even get French news which was weird sat in a bar in 80° heat watching a bulletin about snow storms sweeping the nation, with folks who’d never been below 60° 🤔

A few more random photos I’ve dug out to put on Instagram this week from Antigua, Guatemala; Kendwa, Zanzibar; Bagan, Burma; unknown, Armenia.

I was in Paraguay in 2019. Flew in there and planned to go overland to Bolivia via the Chaco desert, but in the end flew that leg. Paraguay is worth a visit- no tourists, feels more like Chile/Argentina than the countries to the North.

I’ve been to every country except Suriname and French Guyana and everywhere is very different. La Paz is one of my top 5 cities worldwide- very under appreciated in my opinion. Use the Teleferico cable car to get around- best public transport system in the world!

I do have some insider info on this as, in a previous life, I was responsible for pricing contract phones for a large network. They make virtually zero profit on handsets with a contract so the price you pay is now generally the same as buying a new phone outright plus SIMO.

Ok thanks. Do you know if any companies in SK or Japan run tours? I wasn’t planning on being in Beijing!

Do your tours to NK run only from Europe or can you join in Japan or South Korea?
