Ana Hogaş and Ionuţ (John) Florea are Romanian architects with a twist. From June 2011 to August 2012 they traveled by motorcycle around Africa. In an expedition of extremes, they worked as volunteers in the rainforest of Nigeria, crossed the Sahara in suffocating heat of over 54°C, climbed Mt. Cameroon, and explored the Okavango Delta in flood and the Congo basin during the rainy season. Crazy Oyibo is their first book.

Sparked by two unexpected events, the nomadic adventure lasted for 14 months across 29 countries.Part 1 – From Romania To Morocco tells how the expedition began. The learning curve from the first month spent in Morocco sets the tone for an epic journey.
