Paraguay Summary

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

I had been told by a local rider in Bolivia to avoid Paraguay as it was dangerous which meant I definitely had to go. Not because I like danger but because I usually don’t believe in hearsay and want to find out for myself. I didn’t go up to the northern part of Paraguay which […]

Deaf Dude

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

Alex (a Dutch guy on a TT600R) was passing through Asunción so we decided to ride together to see the falls. We first met up in Colombia and were going to ride together but lost each other. Then met up again in Quito and went for a day ride and got lost. So we decided […]

I was going to couch surf with Adrian when I got to Asunción but he was working when I arrived so I checked into a hotel and he came around after work. We ended up going out with another couple of French couch surfers and a few friends of Adrians. I haven’t seen the sunrise […]

Man with a Mission

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

After arriving in Asunción I was walking around town and ended up bumping into a fellow kiwi at the tourism office. He is currently on a mission to work on every continent in the planet but is having a hard time getting even a voluntary position in the Antarctic. His website is hapworkingtheworld.com.
