Travel diary

Back to our resort and chilling in the area.

We tried to hire scooters from a bumster but the policy stopped us after 50 meters and took them away - no documents or license plates on them!

Another confirm that it's not easy to get around if you like independent traveling.

An easier option is to stick to the organized tours.... but it's less fun :P

Unfortunately The Gambia is a sex tourism destination, so get ready to see some weird couples around.

Especially old white fat women with young gorgeous local mandingos!

    Not as bad as imagined, good resort, clean room and OK breakfast. Crowd of old north European folks. Read
