Im Roberto from Chile, 31 years old and 5 years or so into the motorcycle world. Things that happened in my life and a couple of persons that I met in the right place and time, Made that I realice that travelling in a bike was my goal. I did some short trips but always thinking in a big one. And Im doing it right now: me and my girlfriend are travelling from Santiago de Chile to Ushuaia and now we are going north, to Alaska I hope, because the things haven't been to easy: Canada denied my visa (and I lost 200 dollars trying) and the money may not be enought. We quit our jobs and sold almost everything to do it.
I helped some HUBB guys in Santiago with the buying search and paperwork and I hope I can continue doing it when I get back.
Also I hope some day I can have a nice place to offer to the travellers to stay in my non-existent home, as many people did it already in our 3 months trip (until now)
We are now in Porto Velho waiting for our boat to Manaus, after 15.900 kms. We will go north to Venezuela and I hope we can save some bucks with the almost free gas.
and last but not less importat, thanks Horizons Unlimited for your incredible helpull "help"
Great to hear that HU has been a help to you both in your travels, and that you've been able to help other travellers - that's what HU is all about - helping and sharing information with each other.
Sorry to hear though that Canada denied you a visa. That's very frustrating I'm sure. I'd love to know why.
Don't apologize for your English - it's excellent, and better than some native English speakers!
And please post on the Ride Tales Forum about your travels - a few words and pictures would be great - and we can put something in the newsletter about you too. That's a great introduction to a lot of people for you!
have a great trip! See you in California for the HU Meeting?
Why I was denied? I don't know, I aplyed a couple of weeks before I started this trip (january 22nd). Chileans have to aply in advance in a aplication center, I show a lot of papers and a couple of days and a couple of thousands of dollars after I received a umbelow with the answer: "you didn't convince me that you will leave the country" so I don't have nothing to do, aply again will cost me 200 dollars again and can be denied again, maybe i will do it when i get into the states (they give me a 10 years visa after paying like 180 dollars).
I heard and read about the ferry but it look like it cost like 1000 dollars for 2 with a bike and that's a lot for my skinny wallet. If somebody have more actual prices or other options, or a relative in a canadian embassy, please tell me!
California HU meeting? That sounds awesome? When is it?
I will try to keep you informed... At least i will have internet untill saturday morning
24 years ago a friend and I bought a stop over ticket from Canadian Pacific Airline (if I remember rightly). Stops were Toronto, Fiji, Sidney Hawaii and Vancouver - start and end was Amsterdam.
(I think) My fault was to mention, that I wanted to visit a great-cousin in Ottawa - they kept us over 4 hours in the migration in Toronto and asked us again and again in a lot of different offices "What do you want in Canada?" - Remember our tickets - who in the world would buy such an expensive ticket, just to take the first stop for illigal migration?
Burocracy is worldwide a very strange phenomenon - there is no logical reason. But I accepted the message, I never entered Canada again.
"I just wanted to say thanks for doing this and sharing so much with the rest of us." Dave, USA
"Your website is a mecca of valuable information and the DVD series is informative, entertaining, and inspiring! The new look of the website is very impressive, updated and catchy. Thank you so very much!" Jennifer, Canada
"...Great site. Keep up the good work." Murray and Carmen, Australia
"We just finished a 7 month 22,000+ mile scouting trip from Alaska to the bottom of Chile and I can't tell you how many times we referred to your site for help. From how to adjust your valves, to where to stay in the back country of Peru. Horizons Unlimited was a key player in our success. Motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world are in debt to your services." Alaska Riders
