Travel Information

Travel information to help other travelers

Sometimes it would have been so nice to know some things before hand;-) To help other travelers who are exploring the world as well, we wrote down some handy travel information. Especial the ferry crossings from Sudan to Saudi Arabia and from Dubai to Iran where pretty complicated so we decided to share the information to help others.

You can also find a list of countries we visited during our overland trip. Select a country to read about it and get inspired by the photos. Check our track page to see the complete route.

If you have any questions about our route, visa’s, ferry crossings, border crossings or other practical things on the road. Please comment below. Also if you have any information to add, please comment below.

Ferry and transit visa Sudan to Saudi Arabia


We arranged a transit visa for Saudi Arabia. Also we arranged the ferry from Port Sudan (Suakin actually) to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. Click here for more details.

Ferry from Dubai to Iran

In Dubai we arranged the ferry to go from the Emirates to Iran. This process was pretty straight forward, the real struggle was to get our car through Iranian customs. Click here for more details.

    Good morning. My husband is currently crossing into the Sudan with another 3 very old land Rover series 1 , all coming from.south and final destination to UK.
    Where so you suggest they cross over or drive overland. It seems they concerned with ferries from.alexandria and not sure which other route is best to Turkey ?

    Kind regards

      Hi, that sounds like a great trip! We have done our trip in 2016, I am not sure about current situation. We don’t know anything about ferry from Alexandria, we took the ferry from Sudan to Saudi Arabia and from UAE to Iran but unfortunately I don’t have updates on current situation.
