NOTICE: We won’t be able to post our next blog entries (about Patagonia) until March, because our computer cable fried and it will take a while to get it replaced. Please stay tuned until then for an email and/or social media post announcing the next blog posting. 

Our South American Tour -           A Napkin Sketch

We are on an ~18-month bicycle tour through South America. We started in Medellín, Colombia, in June 2018 and headed south through the mountains of Ecuador and Perú. When the springtime rains caught us, we dropped down to Lima on the coast and B-lined to Santiago, Chile. From there we ride south through Patagonia during the southern hemisphere's summer. After that we'll return north to explore northern Argentina and Chile, Bolivia, and some locations in Brazil (any suggestions?). We plan to spend most of our time in the Andes, but will let the road take us where it will.

Where are we now?

We are moving back and forth between Chilean and Argentinian Patagonia, working our way south to Ushuaia, at the southern end of the continent. It's technically summer here, but our future blogs (after our computer gets fixed) will show us wearing hats and coats against the cold winds. 


You can see our track on the map below or, better yet, by visiting our Track My Tour website, where you will also see an up-to-date photo and anecdote from each location we've stayed.

Central Chile: wine, timber, lakes & volcanoes

Getting to Chile was harder than expected, but arriving was like coming home in some ways.
