Until the end of the world - RR now in Patagonia...
 
Hi guys,
Since 2005 I'm trying to cross all the latitudes possible from Nordkapp in Norway to Ushuaia in Argentina. Here is one photo diary.
In 2005 we made it from Lisbon to Guinea thru Dakar; in 2006 we made from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil to Ushuaia comming back thru Atacama desert in Chile. 2007 we crossed the Amazon jungle starting in Caracas Venezuela until Rio de Janeiro again passing Machu Pichu and Bolivia. Next June we are heading to Scandinavia to end this trip.

In 2005 we made the Lisbon - Guinea trip:

We crossed Marroco

Now, to complete my goal I have to go now to Nordkapp.

I plan to make that trip crossing Europe to Norway and then explore the Artic Circle area in Sweden and Finland before return to South. I’m looking for dirt roads in Norway, Sweden and Finland, if anyone have some advices, GPS tracks or good waypoints I will really appreciate :evil

thanks
