I actually got light headed going through this one. Maybe it was the changes in elevation at such a quick pace? Incredible photos!

Without a doubt, riding through South America is my dream adventure, so I found your report ver inspiring. Very beautiful pictures, too.

By the way, let me ask you a question: how much did you pay for the transportation of your bike from Portugal to Venezuela? (I live in Spain, so I guess the price would be more or less the same) Thanks in advance!

From Lisbon to Caracas I pay about 650 euros to send the bike by plane, but it was a BIG redution on the regular prices, normally cost someting around 900 euros. Tap Air Portugal have direct flights from here to Caracas every 2 days.

From Rio to Lisbon cost 500 euros, also with a big redution.

The thing is that you pay the result of an equation envolving volume X weight, so less volume less cost, my bike case messure something like 190cmX58cmX90cm, smaller impossible

In my opinion this one of the best reports in here. Simply amazing!

But tell me what do you guys do for a living? How can you get so much free time to this kind of travelling? (Wish i could do the same... )
