6th till 12th of October 2019. The first days of spring. One thing you can’t change is the weather. Last few weeks we have seen the first signs of spring, covering tree branches like a green mist, or tulips turning their heads towards the sun, lifting our spirits. But spring has been pushed aside by […]Read more
Week 102. La Junta to Cerro Castillo. Biking in Chili.
29th of September till 5th of October 2019. One thing is for sure, you can’t get lost on the Carretera Austral. You go North or South. Your choice. Rain. We now entered the evergreen Patagonia, covered in evergreen trees, the native Coihue or Coigue, which can stay so green because….…yes….it rains a lot in these […]Read more
Week 101. From Dalcahue to La Junta. Biking in Chile.
22nd till 28th of September 2019. I might be wrong. Letting go and no planning can have some adverse effects. Speaking the language and no longer checking if what you think you read is what it actual is, can accumulate to this adverse effect. We understood that the boat leaving Chiloé island will only leave […]Read more
Week 100. Santiago to Dalcahue. Biking in Chile.
15th till 21st of September 2019. Open the door. Key objective of this voyage was to break with our old lifestyle, detach from the rat race, learn to live without high heels and makeup, contemplate on our next chapter. Biking the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route and Patagonia and spend a lot of time discovering […]Read more
Week 99. Uspallata to Santiago. Biking in Argentina and Chile.
8th till 14th of September 2019. Dynamics. Is the dynamic of a group different to only travelling with your partner? What is defined by a group? When do you say dynamics are different? I always have dreaded biking together with others or staying in one bedroom with more people. Had enough with taking care of […]Read more
Week 98. Jáchal to Uspallata. Biking in Argentinia.
1st till 7th of September 2019. Mr. Speed. Argentina is the country of non-accredited saints. You already know San Gil and Difunda Correa. Today we want to introduce you to San Expedito, you need him when you want to have things done quickly. He was a Roman centurion (then Expeditus), who wanted to convert to […]Read more
Week 97. Pituil to Jáchal. Biking in Argentina.
25th till 31st of August 2019. Pictures of home. Undertaking a long distance bike trip is easy. You save, you leave. Then you bike, eat, sleep and repeat; creating a positive flow, kind of working. Until negative things happen at home or with yourself. The accumulation of my mom not being well and having no […]Read more
Week 96. Cafayata to Pituil. Biking in Argentinia.
18th till 24th of August 2019. Long and lonely road. Gazing in a campfire or biking along endless roads brings your mind in the nothing box. Following Route National 40, one of the longest roads in the world, competing with the Trans Canada Highway, Route 66 in the USA and Stuart Highway in Australia. It […]Read more
Week 95. Tilcara to Cafayate. Biking in Argentinia.
Prayer flags. Red flags, in all sizes, blowing in the wind. Drawing attention from afar to little, neglected or big, beautiful decorated shrines. Often with an area to sit, relax or even BBQ. We have seen many of these since passing the border of Argentina and were wondering to whom they were dedicated. Gauchito Gil, […]Read more
