The 317 Km journey was always going to take longer than 6h 22 mins that Google Maps said, I had read that the journey should take somewhere between 8 and 10 hours, so with that in mind I left the guesthouse at 0615 and paid for a tuk tuk to take me into the Old … Continue reading Freetown to Conakry
