Andrew Palmer: Yaounde-Africa

Andrew Plamer on his motorcycle journey and his Voyage-Air in Yaounde-AfricaThis just in from Andrew Palmer in Yaounde, Cameroon, Africa...
Andrew Palmer is well on his way, traveling around the world solo on a motorcycle - with his Voyage-Air guitar. That's right: packing his guitar on a motorcycle. He's found his guitar to be a great tool for introduction in far-away lands, and considers it an essential part of his journey. Periodically, he sends us updates about his travels, and here's the latest:

Hello, Voyage-Air Guitar!
Here are some of my latest pics for you. I really hope that you can use them because it wasn't easy to take them. I'm using my smart phone to take photos and its a little too fiddly for the locals to use. That, and I dropped it in Burkina Faso damaging the screen making it near impossible to see anything on it in daylight!

I really should of taken some more pics in Nigeria as I had loads of opportunities then. Now, I'm on my own, and its not so easy, but I will bear it in mind when I next meet people who can help me take some more. 

Yaounde is a fairly modern city, but during my stay here, I spent some time with African kids in a dirt school yard.

Its a real pain finding decent internet connection out here. I'm currently sat in the Hilton hotel using their expensive, but reasonably fast WIFI.

Please stress the durability of the guitar and case as I've now fallen off loads of times, damaging myself and the bike (I'm okay) but the guitar is fine. I've included one picture of me camping with bike and guitar in Western Sahara that a soldier kindly took for me.

Regards
Andy

Customer Review

Customer Review

I was extremely impressed with the product. It had a patented hinge that allowed it to fold in half at the base of the neck and fit into a small case. The case, also configured to accommodate a laptop computer, was designed to fit into the overhead bin of most commercial airliners.
