I've just booked a ferry to Morocco (Melilla), arriving on the 2nd of February. I will head first to Rabat and then directly south through the desert into Senegal, Casamance and then find my way back to Morocco, probably with a help of a bus (Dakhla - Marrakesh). That means crossing Mauritania twice, with possible detours within the safe areas (I just love the desert :D ) Then I'd like to spend the last 2-3 weeks of April sweating in the Atlas mountains, discovering some hidden corners of Morocco and leave the country again by ferry from Tangier.
If somebody is planning to cycle the area at that time, I'd be more than happy to meet on the road, ride together for a few days, maybe longer. I'm also open to new ideas. I guess I will average about 90-100km per day, riding longer on easy terrain, slowing down when there are more places to visit or in case of finding just the perfect place to spend the night at the beginning of the day...
I'm pretty self-sufficient, generally good at planning, I can cook rice really well (perfect desert food). I speak English, Spanish, currently working on French because of this trip.
