Hola Buenos Aires…!!

My final ride on the first leg of my South American tour was as uneventful as the last few had been… Rather than take the coastal road and take a peek at Mar del Plata, the Argentinian version of St. Tropez, or in our case, Durban-by-the-Sea, we stayed on Ruta 3 and headed first to […]

Chatting With the “Troops” and a VERY Big Day at the Office….!!

After eight hours of uninterrupted sleep, I was ready to ride again… By 6.00 am I had the Big Fella loaded and parked outside the front door of the hotel… I had to wait for the kitchen staff to get their day started, so that I could at least have a few cups of coffee […]

The Ride to Ushuaia…

Our ferry was due to leave Punta Arenas at 9.30am, and we still had to buy our tickets…!! If we missed this ferry, the next one was due two days later, and spending another a few days in Punta Arenas was not an option we were willing to consider…!! Our bikes were ready and loaded […]
