It sounds like a fantastic trip! A detailed route is handy, but we can’t remember meeting any long-distance cyclists who have followed their planned route all the way to the end. In fact I can’t think of a single one. Cyclists change their route due to visa problems, weather, political problems or j...

But absolutely hated pushing our bikes through all of the sandy tracks that Bolivia is so richly endowed with.

Some route comments: - Februari vliegen Nieuw-Zeeland naar zuid Amerika (Pategonië) - fietsen door met name de Andes tot Peru (eind mei) The majority of cyclists head from north to south and not the other direction.

Her blog is well written and contains lots of interesting pictures. I can fully recommend reading it.
That’s certainly true! I especially enjoyed her article Africa A to Z.
You’re right, selfies aren’t for everyone.

You might want to check out the cycling photographer that we portrayed just before Cindy, Nicolas Marino. Nicolas just placed his new website online and it’s gorgeous. https://www.nicolasmarino.com/

We were also there in July / August and since it’s a “dry cold” (like Eric Veenstra noted) the freezing temperatures aren’t a big problem as long as you have a good sleeping bag.
