It has now been 1 year since I came back from South America, and I felt that I needed some time to reflect before writing this final blog entry. The journey made a deep impact on me. Travelling on a bicycle must be the ultimate freedom! You can go wherever you want, whenever you want, […]

When I set off from Medellín, I realized that my bike was starting to fall apart. My tubes easily cracked in the heat and I couldn’t find 28” tubes with thin racing valve stems in Colombia. The cassette was loose, the handlebar was loose and some attachment at the front-wheel was also loose. And the […]

The turn has now come to the last and final country on the trip, Colombia! During the trip, almost all the people that I met who had been here told me it was their favourite country, so I’ve been very curiuos about coming here myself. Despite a rather recent violent history, Colombia and its people […]

Ecuador is the smallest country I have cycled through on my trip, but nevertheless very diverse and rich in nature. Almost immediately after crossing the Peruvian border, the dry coastal climate changed to become more tropical and the humidity hit me by surprise. Banana plantations and fields of cacao stretched all the way to the […]

Before leaving the coast behind in favor for Cordillera Blanca, Peru’s trekking and climbing Mecca, I had a “mission” to do in a fishing village called Végueta. I was contacted by a man before I started the trip when he read one of the articles about it. He asked me to visit an old employee […]

I left La Paz and headed up to the suburb El Alto on the crazy highway, where drivers sometimes overtook others on the right side by using the shoulder! The same day, I reached Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable lake. I had a nice time cycling along the peaceful shores, watching people harvesting the […]

The route has lately revealed some of the highest mountains of the Andean mountain range, among them the highest peak outside the Himalayas – Aconcagua (6,962 m). It has been a nice change from the flat steppe to climb some passes and get more curves.
