Argentina - gravel roads, strong winds and Ushuaia. There are two options for getting to Ushuaia - either the coast road or the inland Route 40. I seek guidance from the girl at the tourist information office in Perito Moreno....
November 24, 2008 GMT - Chile
Chile. It fascinates me that two countries next to one another can be so different. With no prior knowledge of Chile I expected it to be like Peru - but its not. Things are proper in Chile, just like back...
October 30, 2008 GMT - Peru
Peru - I cross the border into Peru late Saturday afternoon. I was going to hold off until Sunday, but had a feeling that the customs office could be closed with a subsequent delay. Crossing into Peru was the easiest...
October 17, 2008 GMT - Ecuador
I'm not sure what to make of Equador - but straight away I get the impression that it will be good value for money. There is no entry charge at the border - one of the few countries that I...
October 14, 2008 GMT - Colombia
South America, Colombia, Bogota. Saturday 11th October - I've been here two days now and am at the airport collecting my bike. Its here - exactly as I left it in Panama. Copa Airlines use a handling agent so I...
October 07, 2008 GMT - Costa Rica and Panama
I had a good feeling about Costa Rica. I had heard good things from several people. However I guess first impressions count for a lot - the fact that I was holed up in the customs office at the entry...
September 27, 2008 GMT - Guatemala, ElSalvador, Honduras and Nicaragua
Guatemala, ElSalvador, Honduras and Nicaragua - four countries in four days. Well almost. Neither is particularly big and it probably takes me longer to clear the border than to drive across each country. Honduras can be done in two hours....
September 14, 2008 GMT - Mexico
The ferry to Topolobampo was extremely unextrordinary. Just like every other ferry that Ive ever been on. It had a bar for the truck drivers, a television lounge for those wanting to sleep and a restaurant for those in need...
September 02, 2008 GMT - Mexico Baja California
Mexico - this is how it happens. You are cruising down highway one south of San Diego which is a three lane freeway. In front is a Chevy pick up truck with a California licence plate. The overhead sign reads...
August 16, 2008 GMT - The Lower 48
The Lower 48 - that what people in Alaska call the rest of the USA. For me thats Washington, Oregon and California. The geatest thing so far is seeing things change as I head south. Obviously the weather or rather...
August 09, 2008 GMT - Canada - Yukon and BC
Onwards to Canada - Yukon Territory and British Columbia. Entered Canada via the Top of the World Highway. 40 miles are gravel on the Alaska side, but a great road none the less. Its narrow and twisting, with only a...
July 29, 2008 GMT - Alaska july 08
Following Blog is for friends, fellow travellers, people in the UK / Europe looking for inspiration and anyone else bored with life. Alaska - not sure why, but I like it. Where to start - Anchorage? Flew out from Glasgow...
