After 7 months and 2 days I’m finally at the finish line, at the ‘Fin del Mondo’ and the world’s most southern city. With £19,128 raised so far as I’m writing this, and more on its way over the next couple of days, it’s almost the finishing point of this long journey. It’s been … More The Finish Line, Ushuaia. From Alaska to Argentina
I am now deep into Argentinian Patagonia, heading south towards the most southern city in the world. It’s crazy to think how fast time has flown since setting off, back in October, from Alaska. If I’d been a little smarter and quicker, I would be at the bottom of the world in time for Laura’s … More The Careterra Austral
I’ve made it to Santiago after crossing the World’s driest desert, The Atacama. I’m currently in the huge home of two awesome Canadian embassy workers and avid cyclists, Dave and Helene, resting up before I start the journey south, towards my final destination. It will take roughly 7 days to get to the last city … More From one Desert to Another. Crossing the Salar de Uyuni and The Atacama.
When I last caught up with the journey I was in the town of Huaraz, chewing fingernails whilst impatiently waiting for my tent pole to arrive. Fast forward two weeks and I’m in the town of Puno, next to the highest lake in the world, waiting to cross into Bolivia tomorrow. Waiting around in … More An Adventure in Peru
It’s been 9 days since I left the comforts of Cuence where I’d been recovering from a bout of food poisoning. I’m now up in the lofty heights of Huaraz, Peru, 3000 metres above sea level and surrounded by the glistening white peaks of the Cordillera Blancha mountains. I rolled into Ecuador, knowing that from all the … More La Ruta de los Volcanes to the Peruvian Desert
I’m currently in the border town of Impales, getting a few things sorted before heading across into Ecuador tomorrow. Its a bittersweet feeling heading south as I’m excited to see what the roads of Ecuador have to offer but I’m sad to be leaving behind my favourite country of the journey so far. Colombia is … More Cycling the ‘Trampolin de la Muerte’ (Death’s Trampoline). Vive Colombia!
I’m writing this about two days ride out from the Colombian capital of Bogota. It took a day of travel to get around the Darien Gap and 3 days of riding to the starting point before I began to drop down south again, to begin the second part of this journey. The story picks … More Costa Rica to Colombia. Getting around the ‘Darien Gap’
Time has flown since New Years Eve and I can’t believe I’m only a week or so away before the ‘difficult’ part of the journey starts. I’m in Costa Rica now, chilling in a hammock after just feeling a fairly sizable earthquake. Large cheers went up from around the town so I’m guessing this is … More 5 Borders in 2 Weeks. From Guatemala to Costa Rica
It seems so long ago now that I was leaving Mexico City and setting my sights south. I’m in Guatemala now, a stone’s throw away from the Belizean border, listening to the fireworks setting off on New Year’s Day. Mexico was unreal and I’ll miss the people, the country and the food so much. Apart … More From Mexico City to the Guatemalan Border
It’s been almost two weeks on the mainland and I’ve just started heading south again after a couple of days off in Mexico City for my birthday. When I cycled off the boat, I couldn’t wait to start crossing over ‘real’ Mexico, although its safe to say I had a little apprehension. Two Australian tourists had been … More Mainland Mexico.
