Is Open Ended Trip Possible?
I have had a look at carnets, visas, climate and routes, but all I seem to have come across so far are time limited trips.
I know I need to plan, but I am trying to keep the time scale flexible.
Has anyone embarked on an open ended trip, and tried for visas as the need arises? This is maybe unrealistic, but thought I would ask anyway.
The other problem I have come across is that it is difficult to forward plan a trip with the state of political fluidity in the world at the minute.
With the world changing so quickly, maybe forward planning is not the way to go anyway!
Oh, on the carnet thing; are they based on new price of a bike, or what it is worth now, and do they really only last a year?
Please feel free to shout and scream at these stupid lazy infantile questions, but as my old maths teacher used to say, "A lazy mathematician is a good mathematician".
Isn't pretty much any trip through Latin America "open ended"? Plenty of folks fly in, buy a small bike locally, and just go riding around from country to country until they run low on money.
Great; thanks guys for taking the time to reply.
Cheered me up!
Used value helps a lot.
Also, I too want to ride and plan less. I think time is on my side, as I can afford to hang about in my tent in a country and not chase deadlines, so a few days or weeks is Ok, as long as the visa for the country I am in has time left.
Will chase up those leads. Thanks again.
