 Dink julle girls nie dit moet bevange wees om so iets aan te pak nie?

Mitsubishi Africa Adventure Cape to Cape Expedition

All women expedition team chosen
After two exciting and challenging weeks of camping and adventure sports, 14 women have been chosen to undertake the Mitsubishi Africa Adventure Cape to Cape Expedition.

Tanya Weyers at Bloukrans Bridge, the world's highest bungy jump 
The intrepid, all female team sets off from Cape Agulhas on 2nd March 2009 and will travel for eight months, 35 000km overland from the southern tip of Africa to the northern tip of Europe.

The eight month expedition aims to promote tourism in Africa. After travelling over 20 000km through 14 African countries, the team will cross the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. Here, during the final four months of the expedition, the team will publicise their experiences in Africa with roadshows through 44 major cities in 15 European countries.

The women were chosen from 18 international finalists after an 11 day selection process in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, where the participants were hosted by local industry sponsors.

Team organiser, Enya Fehler said: It has been fantastic to see the tourism sector pulling together to make this expedition happen."

During the workshop, the participants' bravery was tested with an adventure sports packed programme, including abseiling, off-road driving and even the world's highest bungy jump.

The event ended with a dramatic and emotional 'Survivor' style vote, as the women chose who they wanted in and out of the expedition team.
The Mitsubishi Africa Adventure Cape to Cape Team
The final team members are Sibongile Mpakanyiswa, Monica Villalobos, Tanya Weyers, Julie Farrington, Monique Hansen, Alicia Proud, Petra Schueller, Tanya Tiefenthaler, Ingrid Bohme, Jahna Boshoff, Marion Le Roux and Bridgette Johnson.

They will be joined by expedition organisers Enya Fehler and Andrea Doerfert.

The women can not wait to share their "Afro-optimism". After moving to South Africa from Peru, team member Monica Villalobos says that she wants to share her love of her adopted continent. "A lot of people have an image of Africa as riddled by war, famine and crime, but we want to show the amazing things that our continent has to offer."

The team have already secured the sponsorship of Mitsubishi and numerous other companies, are now looking for additional finance and equipment sponsors for this high profile media event.

Life is short! Break the rules!
Forgive quickly! Kiss slowly!
Love truly, laugh uncontrollably
And never regret anything
That made you smile!

Op Plett nogal - en ons het nie eers daarvan geweet nie Scratch

Klink na 'n lekker trippie.

Remember what Bilbo used to say: It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.
