Florio prepares his fine art colour photography prints from the expedition, for all those who kindly donated towards the journey and The Eden Porject, Cornwall, UK’s charity ‘Gardens for Life’. Thank you so much.

We’ll be sending out Florio’s beautiful prints over the next couple of days. Still waiting, however, to hear from some of you as to your preferred choice of print from the expedition.
As always, we’d like to thank everyone for donating to the cause. We definitely couldn’t have done any of this without your support. We continue to work hard at spreading the word about Gardens for Life (for Gambian kids and kids worldwide).
We’re also working on ideas for a joint book about the journey, filled with images and road stories from both of us. Florio will also be making a book of the vibrant and vividly coloured portraits of the Alkalo’s that we stayed with on the walk around The Gambia. To see the series of images, please visit his website http://www.floriophoto.com/#/projects/930km%20african%20odyssey/1
Please keep checking in for updates and images about our continuing journey.
