Santiago, Chile

  • I arrived two weeks early to learn Spanish and organize bikes.
  • I was initially scared to leave the taxi at the hostel….. Why?..I thought people had guns.
  • Began Spanish school and befriended a student named Meredith from Canada, helped her look for an apartment and found one for ourselves.
  • Nick and Mike arrived and a rotation system of two nights on the double bed and one on the floor was established in the appartment.
  • We bought Mikes KLR form a fellow adventurer named Bevan.


  • Bikes arrived in Valparaiso.
  • After an hour or so of assembling the bikes, mine wouldn’t start.
  • After two hours of pushing, pulling and dismantling, Nick noticed that i wasn’t switched onto the reserve tank!! (This mistake was not forgotten quickly)
