Although my bike traves have been limited to the US and Canada so far, my travels have taken me on brief glimpses of the world from China, Hong Kong, England, France, Spain, S.Korea, Israel, and others. Traveling to SA is now on my list.

I will be in Aruba in a couple of weeks for my annual snorkeling but the coast of Columbia you reported on, is etched in my neuron case now.

Either by bike, jet or backpacking it, getting out and seeming the world and understanding the underlying goodness of most people on the planet is always rewarding. As it has been mentioned, the first step to an adventure is sometimes hard to do.

Enjoy the world and it's natural beauty. Safe travels my amigo.


I owe you a pizza if we ever meet.
Hi Den,

I'm always up for pizza. Glad you are enjoying the ride report. Thankfully, others are contributing interesting posts while I goof off here in Medellin.

And yes, I think you'd really enjoy the Atlantic northern coast of Colombia. Cartegena, Taganga, Tayrona, Palomino, Cabo de la Vela. Nice places to visit.

The more Spanish you know, the more fun you'll have interacting with the locals with in-depth conversations.

South America and back on a 250 Super Sherpa Minimalist Adventure
