Viedma Argentina, 2013 HU Travellers Meeting

December (to be determined) 2013

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!

On Sunday we will go to the countryside for Patagonian lamb on the farm of a friend, the price is 95 pesos each, with salad, wine and ice cream too.

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