• Mobile in Iraq…

    Pretty good cover near the roads, elsewhere it’s not covered. AsiaCell is best cover but not the best speed based on official reviews. Packages from AsiaCsll are below. There’s an unlimited package for 40,000. Don’t forget the SIM card is…

  • Turkey Shoot…

    So there you have it. Unofficially back in Europe although still technically Asia for a bit. I’ll post a comprehensive article about the what, where, why and WTF about Iraq in a bit. I might do it in bits as…

  • Ghost Ship….

    This is one empty mall. Doesn’t help that it’s Ramadan so all the food places are closed. Shops open but no people. Sad. It was a very nice Mall and had really good WiFi and it even had a small…

  • The Mirror Crack’d

    Never got to see much of the mirrored building initially as the minute we arrived through the gate there was something wrong with Henrietta and specifically her clutch. More on that later in another post. There is a gate across…

  • Tales of Meeting and Parting…

    We arranged to meet one of the members from the Overlanding Association WhatsApp group. You may not even know that the Overlanding Association is pretty much half my fault. But that’s another story all together. We run 35 or so…

  • Fast X

  • Oman to UAE – Khatmat Border

    Quite an easy border really but as you would expect for the Middle East and for a modern country. Some of the huts on the side of the road had people in them but they were only interested in things…
