Trinidad and Tobago Summary

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

I had read in my lonely planet that you could catch a ferry from Venezuela to Trinidad and Tobago and I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to visit the Caribbean. And it was going to be nice to be in an English speaking country again for a short while. I highly rate T&T. A friend […]

Venezuela Summary

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

I was a bit annoyed with my bike for costing so much after a slip in the mud so I ended up leaving it at Cartagena for five weeks and went to Venezuela with a girl that I met on the boat on the way over and did the normal backpacking transportation of taking the […]

Panama Summary

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Other than a quick trip down to the Darien where I met up with my friends hitchhiking through Central America on $4 a day and the Panama Canal I didn’t spend much time in Panama. I had heard that the road out to the boat might be a bit rough but when I wrote to […]

Costa Rica Summary

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

In Costa Rica after visiting the beautiful Volcano Arenal region I spent almost a week staying at Mishca’s in San Jose cleaning myself and my gear up and renewing my insurance. And doing yet another of the many maintenance sessions on my bike. As the rainy season was about to start I didn’t stick around […]

Nicaragua Summary

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

I must admit that I prefer green countries as they remind me of New Zealand and when I rode into Nicaragua it was incredibly brown and everyone honks incessantly. A local actually told me that Nicaraguans couldn’t drive if their horns were disconnected. When I went to visit the Casa Alianza in Managua I found […]

Honduras Summary

Friday, January 7th, 2011

When travelling through Central America you hear horror stories about the next country which made me quite apprehensive entering each country, particularly Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. By South America this had worn off and even though even a Bolivian motorbike and race car driver said that Paraguay was too dangerous for even him to […]

El Salvador Summary

Friday, January 7th, 2011

El Salvador was going through an election when I was there and most trees, rocks and posts where painted in the leading parties colours. So I headed into the forest walking across Parque El Imposible and scaled a waterfalls, did some abseiling finishing off with a hot springs. Then I was lucky enough to be […]

Guatemala Summary

Friday, January 7th, 2011

As a friend had come out to visit me in Belize it felt like Guatemala was going to be my first country I was doing on my own. Then on my first day I met a guy who had ridden down from California and convinced a night guard to give us a private night tour […]

Belize Summary

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Belize is a charming mix of English, Spanish and Kriol speaking Caribbean’s. Famous for its diving (though we didn’t manage to do as much as we wanted due to rain) it also has lots of cool activities to do like butterfly ranch, Mayan ruins, a great zoo and a Mennonite settlement you can visit. And […]

Mexico Summary

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Once I had established I could ride long distances in foreign countries the real trip began with Mexico! I did not realise how mountainous a lot of Mexico is. It is pretty freaky to ride along and come around a corner to stare over a 2500 meter drop or riding the “El Espinazo del Diablo” […]
