FOR THOSE WHO DON ’ T KNOW WHAT YOU DID DURING YOUR INCREDIBLE TWO-YEAR TRIP , CAN YOU GIVE AN OVERVIEW OF WHERE YOU WENT , WHERE YOU STAYED , AND HOW THE ROUTE EVOLVED ?
In 2016 , we set out on a round the world trip . We closed up our house in Belgium , jumped on our 701 Enduros and started riding . Getting out of Europe quickly was our first priority as the weather forecast was pretty horrible . So , we crossed France , Spain and Portugal and properly started our adventure in Morocco .
What an amazing country . Morocco is an ideal playground for offroaders and it allowed us to warm up and get used to our Husqvarnas . We headed south and passed through 14 countries in western Africa
