Colen Javens

Colin Javens traveled overland from the UK to Cape Town despite a spinal injury that left him paralyzed. I couldn't help thinking he must be a distant cousin of Marie Javins who traversed around the world using surface travel in 2001.

Of course, they spell their surnames differently, but not too many generations ago, name spelling was not standard. They share courage and determination along with a love of travel.

See Marie's book about exploring Africa.
