I must apologise for my long absence.

The successful return of Radwan Ag Ayouba and his family from their refugee camp in Burkina Faso to their lands of Ewet on the River Niger near Timbuktu on my project Return 2 Timbuktu: A Caravan of Courage and Hope (also see under Caravan Of Courage and Hope and return 2 Timbuktu under tags) in March 2014 was euphoric but had one draw back: I was exhausted and needed a complete break.

I am happy to announce that after a year of living on my houseboat in London and contemplating the river I now feel re-energised and raring to go again. My rehabilitation is largely down to having met a wonderful woman, Petra, whose patience, understanding and listening ear have seen me through and given me the energy to re-launch From Here 2 Timbuktu with some really exciting new ventures which I will be publishing soon. These include:

Self Drive Sahara Overland

The From Here 2 Timbuktu Caravan

London 2 Timbuktu Rally (Nov/Dec 2016)

Get a taster of these with this flyer

I am also in discussion about offering trips to Iran which i am really excited about.

With Radwan and the family I am busy planning and looking for investment for The Ewet Project, an exciting development project on Ewet. This will be a trading partnership between From Here 2 Timbuktu, Radwan and the people of Ewet.

Get a taste of The Ewet Project.

In the coming months I will be re-organising the website to reflect the new direction of the company.

Most exciting of all is that Petra will be joining From Here 2 Timbuktu from December 2015.

Back very soon with more information.
