BA to Bogota thru Brazil coast, Belem - Manaus by boat or road April to July

Hello,

After reaching Ushuaia and relaxing for a few weeks in Bunos Aires, it will soon be time to point my mighty KLR in the direction of some new adventures.

For the moment, I'm looking at something along the lines of :

BA - Foz de Iguazu - Sao Joaquim - Florianopolis - Blumenau - Sao Paulo - Rio then up the coast to Belem from where I boat or ride (although sounds totally crazy, me gusta) to Manaus. then up venezuela and make my way to Bogota.

Right now, I'm thinking 2 months for the whole way. mas o menos.

looking for someone laid back and up for this awesome adventure.

I'm 33 yo, from Montreal, I speak french, english and a bit of spanish (cada dia un poco mas).but NO portuguese

My name is Helly, I'm a German living in New Zealand, check out my blog to learn more about me if you want: Good bye and thanks for all those roads!

Ciao, Helly

I'll be in Bolivia in June. Iguazu in late June or early July. Then I'd like to ride Brazil. I don't have a route or agenda planned out so I'm pretty flexible. I'm riding a DR650. I'm always up for a little riding.

Hi,

Just came down and can tell you the Amazonas Boat trip is amazing and the people in Venezuela have been as friendly as the people in Brasil. Insted of robing or killing me they offered nice fruits:

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.
