    Ireland to the Sahara

    Hi all,

    I've booked a ferry from Ireland to Bilbao Spain end of Sept 2021, I've 3 weeks solo on a 1150GSA

    Rough plan.
    Gara Medouar.
    Tizi n' Test.
    Plage Blanche.
    Dakhla.
    And further down to St Louis Senegal if possible.

    Is this feasible in 3 weeks, or more importantly there and back.
    To be honest I assume not but would like someone who's been out there to tell me that.

    I arrive early in Spain so plan on riding through the day.

    Is there one ferry crossing that "better" than the others for any reason? Assume tickets can be purchased when you arrive and don't need to be prebooked.

    Has anyone passed through Mauritania recently? Be interested to hear how it went, what are the road conditions like, how long to cross.
    Any safety concerns experienced?

    Its 10 months away so I know things can change but looking forward to planning the trip.

    Many thanks
    Al.

    Sorry mate.

    Bad manners on my part.

    If you want to message me personally give me a shout.

    I’ll help you where I can.

    For paperwork the Tim Cullis advice on here is absolutely brilliant

    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.
