HU ArgentinaTravellers Meeting 10-12 December 2010

Horizons Unlimited Travellers Meeting

8th Annual Viedma Argentina Travellers Meeting

December 10-12, 2010

Why Come to an HU 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!

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!

From Oscar, after the Meeting:

"The meeting was good, only bad weather was windy and cold. No so many mototravellers, but like so much fun. I send some photos that I think look good, but I think they have much better photos.

Good times

Travelers came from Germany, England, Finland, Austria, New Zealand, Canada, United States. Some of them left before the meeting because they had little time for their journey.

Argentine style Dinner!

Nancy and I are very grateful to every traveler who were very good people and always helped us that everything goes well. Special thanks to Voellm Frank (Pancho) that helped a lot.
