Interesting Video(s) Anyone? (page 3)

Last night we watched an absolutely beautiful 1 hour video of a trip from the Pamir to the Karakoram Highways. It's an hour long so put your feet up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjhTegkTN4Q

Hi Karen,
Depends a bit on where you are, but I've found that May is usually a very good month in all of South-Central Africa:  just after the rainy season (that is, where the rains come in the hot season -- the Cape is an exception, the rains come in the cold season June-July-Aug), so that it's not too hot or too cold.

In mountainous areas, such as the Draakensberg in SA or Mulanje in Malawi, one must expect changeable weather -- but again, I've found May to be benign.

Sept./Oct/ early Nov., just before the rains, can be very hot and dry, hence uncomfortable -- it hasn't rained since March or April, remember. (Tho' it's spring, so the colours are often sublime.) After that, on the highveldt away from the Cape, beware thunderstorms.

Been a few years since I've read/used the LPG Southern Africa, but I found it to be a good resource.

Cheers,  J.

Hi again Karen 

This video set in Scotland is fun, light hearted  and interesting. It has the classic line “It’ll be fun”,  they said.

I've enjoyed Dave Briggs videos. He has a long series of them made as he travelled from Greece to the UK. It's Bicycle Touring Across Europe. He has a YouTube channel with other touring videos, along with some product reviews. https://www.youtube.com/c/DaveBriggs/playlists
