For a long time now, I anticipated arriving to the end of the Americas, on my bicycle, with Paul. Well, more days and medical news on Paul’s foot, put me in the hard position, to stay, or to go for what may be the last adventure on this long distance bike tour. “Last”, because I… Continue reading The trek in Patagonia
Oh wait. Been done. Alright, so no one has biked to the moon. But what if I propose to cycle on the moon? Any supporters? At least weigh of the load would not be burdensome! Ok, so moving on.. After the weeks in Bolivia, it was a completely different world in Chile, and after weeks… Continue reading For my next tour, I will cycle from Chile to the Moon, 2020. Donations and support welcomed!
Bolivia- what can be said about this country? In a few generalizations; it’s poor, mountainous, and landlocked. Our southwestern route was only a small portion. We did not see the north to south eastern part of Bolivia’s Amazona. We even did not go to Potosi or Santa Cruz. We cycled from the lake Titicaca through… Continue reading Flamingos and snow in the desert? Pink and white lakes? Where are we?
Dashing through the headwind (and rain)… Sometimes shoved off the road (by those damn drivers) O’er the Altiplano we go, Panting all the way “AH-UH-AH-UHHH” Oh, what fun it is, to ride, on a two-wheeled-touring-rig-pulling-a-beast-of-burden name ‘BOB’. Seriously tho’, it’s a breath of fresh air to finally be back on the road, after what? Four… Continue reading Riding our way into a New Year!
The two months in Europe came to an end. I scheduled a flight back to South America while Paul stayed in Spain. With two weeks to spare, I wondered, what would I do when I returned back to South America? Between my plane landing in Guayaquil Ecuador, and the bicycles stored south in Lima, Peru,… Continue reading Machu Pikchu… brought to you, by, Saṃsāra!
By last minute decision, I joined Paul for a trip to Europe. Two years ago, I considered making a bike tour in Europe, and although that would have been an amazing journey, my decision led to a good compromise- traveling Latin America with Europeans. So it turns out, two years later, I go to Europe… Continue reading A journey in France.. and Spain!
After an unforgettable week with Brigitte and Paul in the warm Mediterranean Turkey (many thanks), we returned to Paris. Just in time for Autumn, we adjusted to the season by resting in the childhood flat of Paul, where Brigitte would prepare a nice breakfast like she always use to, and practice the piano playing lovely… Continue reading Meet the Bros
Day 731 on the weary travelers path, Today marks my 2 year bike-a-versary, since I began my bike tour, beginning from the apartment of my friend, Inertia. A grand tour starting from Arizona to the end of the world, Patagonia. It is my last day in France- a two month parenthesis of my road diaries.… Continue reading Two Years
From Ecuador, and an overlay in Colombia, I flew to Madrid, Spain. During the first 5 hours at the Madrid airport, I was already beginning to wonder if I would enjoy Europe. I was not allowed to bring my two small bags on board, and there was a predicament that I could not pay 30… Continue reading Çok güzel! Our week in Turkey!
