My lessons learned from drinking Inca Kola and via Ticlio Pass to Lima

I rode the busy Ticlio pass (4818m) to Lima and finally found a vet to get the required papers for entering the EU. Wow, did I get sick this time.

Nasca Lines, broken bearing and back into the mountains

Paranoid? I do not know but I did not want to play it the Latin American way. Amazing difference between coastal and mountain roads.

Smile Ollantaytambo & how to visit Machu Picchu with a dog and vegan food

Pets are not allowed on the trains to Machu Picchu neither in Machu Picchu itself. I found two ways to visit Machu Picchu while traveling with a dog. Ollantaytambo had several veg-friendly restaurants and I could have a nice hike with Peto.

I am 116 years and walked Machu Picchu

Inspired by the magic of Machu Picchu I did manage to have a great time besides the fact that I am 116 years young

Wink Fantastic vegan food in Cusco

The only reason I went to Cusco was the fact that there are three vegan restaurants and the food was fantastic.

Bordercrossing Peru Bolivia with a dog and a motorbike

There is no entry fee for EU-citizens into Bolivia, but what about the bike and the corrupt officers? And what about Peto?

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
