Planning the same kind of trip !!!

Hey guys... i'm so happy to have found you ! You gonna understand why...

My name is Nicolas, i'm from Belgium but live in Barcelona... after my first trip in Asia, Australia(...) and New Zealand i have decided that the next one would be in north and south america and guess what i want to do it by motorbike because i have already tried a little bit to travel that way and i loved it !

My plan is the same that what you're doing !
I would start this summer from Canada (Montreal) and i hope that i would be able to go untill Brazil (june 2014) for the next world cup of football !

I have seen your blog, i really enjoy it, particularly the videos wich are fun, very well done and with good music (ex : Rodrigo & Gabriela, i'm a big fan !)

So, i'm now preparing my travel more or less the same way that you did : learning some mecanic, pass the moto licence, ride better,...

I would have some questions for you guys because there's some stuff i don't know how i could get trought with ! Maybe you can help.

Stuff like, how did you bring your motobikes untill Canada if you're from Australia ! What kind of insurance do you have ? You have an Australian number plate ? Is it ok with it ??

So if you could help me to answer some question i have, that would be really great !

I give you my e-mail because i think it would be easier but if you want to respond here, it's ok for me aswell : skyzo_13@hotmail.com

I hope you doing fine guys... hard to imagine de contrary but i see that you are in Honduras right ? I lived there in 1998 (year of "el niƱo") ... by me not the more enjoyable country but when you travel, you never know what the next day brings you so good luck, i wish you the best !

I hope to hear from you soon


P.S : Happy to see that you bought a new "Go Pro"

The Final Episode

Check out the final leg of our trip, from Colombia to Ecuador.

Didn't quite make it to Brazil, but we had a hell of a good time laying around drunk on beaches in various countries instead!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
