we are planning a trip early 2015 from Germany to South America.
The plan is to leave after Xmas 2014 and ship the bikes beforehand
to Rio and start from there. The plan of the order of the countries is still for discussion. We are 2 guys on 2 bikes and looking for another participant.
The plan is to travel for about 6 months to max. 1 year.
Anyone interested to join the trip of a lifetime ?
as far as now we know that we going to start in Rio, end of January.
I'll be going from Germany and my buddy is coming from New Zealand.
He probably join for 6 months or so and I planned for a year.
The route is totally still open with no obligations.
How about your plans ?
I meant January 2015 as well. Still have to earn some more
Good input with Brasil. Need to collect more infos.
However we have the chance to go on a cruise which arrives on Rio on
25th Jan 15. This is a good opportunity.
Lets keep in touch ..
I'm also in the first planing steps of my South America Trip spending about two month starting in January 2015 and maybe a second part of another two months starting round October 2015. At this time I don't know if the start will be in Chile oder in Argentina.
The cheapest shipping method I think will be to share a container if you get enough people to fill it up
If you want to share anything like trip details, transport offers or other good adresses, ... we can keep in touch in this thread.
got a couple of proposals for shipping the bike and
its recommended NOT to ship the bike to Brazil or Argentina.
Best place seem to be Valpariso. Costs 699 Euro.
I have a passage already with a cruise ship to Americas, early Jan.
Please let me know if u still interested and we can share phone nr.
I will be out of work at the end of this year and will be able to take about 6 months and was planning a South American Trip from January.
I am based in the UK and was going to ship from here using James Cargo by Air to Buenos Aires as its a good route to take at that time of the year (from a weather perspective). The price is about 1500 Euros all inclusive (that's one way).
Route wise was thinking something along the lines of Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Columbia, then I could potentially ship over to Panama but its really a loose plan and will change once on the road. The idea is to continue as much as I can until I need to come back and get back into work
