Argentina 2006: Fourth Annual HU Travellers Meeting

Why Come to a Horizons Unlimited Motorcycle Travellers Meeting?

You can meet people who don't think you're crazy for wanting to ride your bike to South America or Africa or across Asia, or even around the world! Admit it, all your 'normal' friends and most of your family fears for your sanity! So, this is your opportunity to meet the people who will encourage you in that craziness, share their experiences and advice on how to do it, and maybe you'll meet them again in Mongolia or Timbuktu!

Viedma, Argentina, December 8-10, 2006

On the road now? Heading for Ushuaia? stop in to the Meeting - you'll meet loads of other travellers heading south - or north! Swap information and make new friends!

Location for 2006 was in La Boca, the "Los Trentinos" campground as in 2003-5.

What happened

The general plan for Argentina is always simple - have a good time and eat a lot!

From Flopy,

"we had a great time and i think that you can see in the photos! In the second picture we were going to La Loberia, we had luck because the day was wonderful! In the third, is the cordero that we ate at Julian's farm, it was delicious! in the third, that is Andy, and in this picture you can see that the asado was great, no? And behind him, is Mark and Aasha, and I think that they were thinking the same as Andy! ;) And in the first picture, you can see all the group in the farm!"

Monday, it was time to head south for Christmas and New Years at Ushuaia, or east or west or wherever!
