New Adventure … starts 4/4/14


On the 4th April 2014 I will start my Aberdeen2Africa bike trip.  Just like my last trip my plan is to have as little plan as possible.  I aim to spend approximately three years cycling around the coast of Africa.

By booking me for a massage, yoga tuition or a talk, you are not only helping yourself and/or your business but also contributing towards my African adventure … 

Many thanks in advance.

Watch this section for updates from me as I cycle around Africa.

    Hi. I’m Hiromi from japan. I have met you almost 5 years ago in thessaloniki, Greece while I was traveling Europe. I’m not sure if you remember me. I was spunky Japanese gamine who felt Scottish love deeply at that time after finishing my work in cupar, fife. Anyway, I was looking back my journey the other day and I suddenly remember the guy who was cycling from Aberdeen to Adelaide, then I find this page. Now you’re on adventure again! Please take care, I will support you from japan! Good luck, and hope to see you again somewhere!

    Hey Eric… As you cycle and cycle remember the world is round and you are going to Africa from Scotland, which is downhill all the way, right? You might not realize it and it may sound silly but just accept it and don’t question….. Like the effects of breathing from the left nostril! Remember…. .?Good luck and keep us posted! Cheers max& veronica, Malta

    • Eric Smart says:

      Hi Max and Veronica well it doesn’t feel downhill and in 36 degrees I am breathing through both nostrils! Almost at crossing point 3000 Km’s and many bus stops have taken me to beside Cadiz. A wee rest is in order and maybe even a blog entry before Africa. Take care Eck
