"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower; Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour." William Blake

VRC El Salvador

March 19th, 2009 by sunflowers

I wish I had realised how expensive it is to maintain a bike before I decided to do the trip. Actually the cost of the amount of work I needed to do to my F650 when I had it was one of the reasons why I needed to delay my trip. Today I went and had an oil change and hand guard protectors fitted as the handlebar end was wreaked along with my clutch. Luckily Boanerges who I met last night worked in a bike shop and arranged for me to receive a discount which was lovely of him.

    Hi Annette,
    Not sure if you remember meeting me (and Greg) in Sac Champay, central Guatemala last month, but wanted to tell you that you are certainly an inspiration to me as I’m considering a long adventure on my motorcycle too! Thanks for creating this blog and posting the highlights of your travels! It truly is a wonderful experience you are having. Will you make it to Argentina?
    Take care and be safe,

    Hi Dennis,

    Of course I remember meeting you. Please thank Greg again for the compass. I haven’t had to use it yet which is good but I am glad I have it with me.

    I hope to make it to Argentina. Other than being totally behind schedule I am still on route (c:

    Even half way through the trip when I have recruitment consultants contact me it is hard to not want to go home to get a job. But you have the rest of your life to work so if you can do a trip like this you might as well do it.

    See you on the road one day.

    All the best,

    I will pass you message on to Greg! You must be the amazing navigator if you haven’t had to use the compass yet! You’re so right about having the rest of your life to work. No one on their death bed ever said ” I wished I had worked more.” It’s been a rough transition back to reality since my vacation…So, if you don’t mind me asking, how much did you budget per day for your adventure or how much did you save up? Perhaps your using he old credit card and plan on paying for your trip at a later date? By the way, nice hair cut, you look HOT! Safe travels and look forward to following you on your way.
