Passenger Profile #12: Yoichi - African Trails 'Ultimate Trans Africa' Overland Trip

  • Name: Yoichi
  • Age: 24
  • From: Osaka, Japan
  • Aliases: Yoich, Yamato, The 7 stomached Samurai, Yoshi
  • Most likely to say: "Oh!" or "No thankyou" or most of the time when not understanding someone 'Yeyeyeyeyeyeye'

Ate more then I have ever seen anyone eat in my entire life and yet still managed to look like he'd just been rescued from a concentration camp.

Would eat 4 plates of dinner bit would only be "Full - 70%".

Is now able to chat in full English sentences and be understood - MASSIVE improvement since the beginning.

Holds a serious grudge - Still does not like Kay and Neal after a brief nut throwing incident in Benin 3 months ago.

Eats (and cooks) with ketchup in everything.

Wins number one spot on the loudest snoring poll.

Will without a doubt run out of money before we reach Istanbul.


Yoichi in his favourite orange jacket trying to keep warm

On the way from hair to shaved we stopped at punk rock

Quickly getting rid of Yoichi's hair before the roots started to grow in...

Pre-broken glasses era...

Looking a bit too serious on the beach in Ghana

Hitting some yoga poses in the ruined city of Volubulis

In the Moroccan Souks (note favourite orange jacket again)

Hanging out the truck checking out the scenery

Able to help out digging out Ruby in Wazza (shirt has been removed to avoid the dreaded sweating)

Lost in the desert?!

Happy Yoich
