We need a Kathe update. It would seem the romance is back on track.

Just read this start to finish... Excellent!

As a guy who sold his KLR to get a lighter bike your tip over and sand incidents had me laughing so hard. Twenty minutes to turn a bike around

The romantic drama adds a whole new layer of excitement to the journey, I want a hot flight attendant gf!

Wtf



Lalo,

How and/or why did you blast the corner of that room? I mean, damn. Was that really necessary?

Excellent report BTW, thanks for all the hard work keeping it live.

Walt

I am just catching with your report. Before few days I also ended 3.5 years long relationship and this is not first time for me so dunno what to think about future relationships, marriage... It is just all super awesome in the beggining but sucks after some time. Im planing to travel next year too, not so long like you because I can't but it will be good relax, and most of all- one good experience. Ahhh that women...

I've been lurking on this sight for well over a year checking out various posts mostly on gear and the flea market. About two weeks ago this thread caught my eye. Many hours later I am caught up. This is better than most tv shows these days. Adventure, action and a love story all wrapped into one.


Lalo - I am looking forward to the next chapter in your adventure. Enjoy a little down time with Cathe. You have certainly earned it!

Wishes from Galati

So Lalo,
did you reach Lima or do you are still tasting wine in the waiting area of Madrid airport?
I did a pretty nice trip too, from the north/east of Hungary, where we
met I drove through all Rumania, in the beginning close to the border
with Ukraina and then with Moldova, amazing views and roads as well.
I miss a lot my GS adv that is still lying in my garage.
Now I'm in Galati, close to the Danube's delta and Black see, good wines and pretty girls also here...take in memory.

BW for your "visit" in Lima

Ciao

Wink 7000 miles in a day

I made it to Lima but it wasn't easy.
I flew out of Tirana Albania at 7 am to Rome.
From there, I was flying standby to Madrid.
There were three flights that day but all of them were full.
But luck was on my side. The captain was a motorcycle guy and let me on the plane and I rode on the jump seat in the back galley.
So I was two for two.
But my next leg to Lima Peru was going to be the tough one. I was flying standby again and I had 3 different options and all three were full.
And they were full every day that week.
But I got really lucky and there was one no show and I got the only empty seat on the plane directly to Lima.
The flight was at midnight so it made for a long day.
But my luck ran out when my bag didn't show up. I wasn't really surprised considering I boarded the plane the last minute.
Today is Kathe's birthday and all the wine I brought with me for her was still in Rome.
Last night we went out with some her friends. A few bottles of pisco and champagne later, we were dancing on the tables.
When we got back to her place, she realized that her purse was missing. And in her purse was my camera. So no pictures until I can get a new one. I am kind of happy about that as I hated that camera anyway.
I also had to buy some new clothes as are my clothes were still in my lost bag. And the ones that I was wearing were pretty stinky.

Tonight we are going out with her family for dinner.

And the next couple of days, I will be planning and organizing my next leg of my moto ride to SE Asia.
And sometime this month, Kathe and I will be going somewhere warm and have a little vacation.
I will surely have a new camera by then.
