You are right Julio!! We are. Too bad so many riders just race thru this country.

Mario''s shop is nice. His guys are top notch. Orvar got new Touratech panniers also since the old ones were flapping like wings after El Impossible :)


Happy heart day!!

El Tunco

We had heard there were some German riders in El Tunco so we all went out to meet Katja and Jens.

It was great to hear some of their stories from the last 2 years.

Coffee Finca

We went up to San Salvador volcano again to visit the coffee finca near the crater and then around the volcano to visit the one on the other side.

At the second finca we hiked up to see the two craters on the property that we saw on the map at the park earlier in the week.




finca Lecha 8 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


One is huge and filled with trees. The smaller one is collapsing on itself.

On the way down we stopped for a view of the lava flows from the 1917 eruption.

Sight Seeing in Salvador

We visited the Joya de Cera archeological site.



Joya de Ceren 42 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr




Joya de Ceren 2 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


It is known as the Pompeii of Central America. The site was covered in volcanic mud and ash at least 14 times, beginning around 260 A.D, with the last recorded around 600 A.D. It was discovered by accident in 1976

Joya de Ceren 30 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr



Joya de Ceren 33 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


There is also a small museum here housing displays explaining the discovery, excavation, and conservation of the site. There are a number of artifacts on display as well.



Joya de Ceren 10 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


We were lucky to see the national bird of El Salvador, which has amazing tail feathers.



Joya de Ceren 38 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


Back at casa Lecha we applied our new stickers as an homage to Katja and Jens who have all their stickers in the same locations on their two bikes.

Devil's Door

The next day we rode up to the Devil’s door. On the way we stopped at the picturesque village of Panchimalco with it’s all white church.



Devil's door 46 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr



Devil's door 9 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


You can see the Devil’s door above us on the hillside.



Devil's door 5 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


I took the opportunity to trial all 3 bikes, the 800 GS, the R1200, and the 1200 adventure as a pillion. Mario you win for ride comfort and view.



Devil's Door 46 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr



Deviel's door 47 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


La Puerta del Diablo´s main atraction is a 360° panoramic view of half of El Salvador. From here you can see San Salvador, Lake Ilopango, the city of Cojutepeque and the towering volcano of San Vicente. You will see most of the central coastline of El Salvador from this spot 1,131 meters above sea level.

Having too much fun in El Salvador

Worldwideride and the GSSWEDE spent the last few days in El Salvador living it up. with MFF (Mario, Fernanda, and Fernandita)



Image 6 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


Happy Valentines Everyone!



valentines dinner 16 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr



valentines dinner 7 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


Fernanda wanted to take us to her favorite quiche pizza place. The décor includes Elvis posters, taxidermy, and Chinese paper lanterns.



DSC04916 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr



DSC04917 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


The pizza however is amazing and the beer mug is so cold that the beer ices when you pour it in.



valentines dinner 2 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


We had the “crazy pizza” with a rainbow of toppings, but the secret is the delicious tomato salsa you put on top.



DSC04921 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


Carlos at the Barracuda showed us a great time on Friday night and he makes a mean caprina.



baracuda 5 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr

baracuda 32 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


Orvar even got into the action behind the bar as the master blender.



baracuda 3 by Worldwide Ride.ca, on Flickr


You have to love a place where they label the bottle with your name for when you come back.
