Hugh and Pauline in South America

A trip through Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile
By Pauline Symonds
#605 - posted Sunday April 13, 2014 by Neil Gunton

"We are not under any illusions - it won't be at all like cycling across Europe to the Ukraine with lots of route choice and places to stock up with food and water every 5 minutes. A look on Google Earth reveals a dramatically barren and mountainous landscape with places few and far between. I'm not sure if we will come back super strong or completely knackered - it's one or the other with no in between. But, as Crazyguyonabike reveals - there are plenty of people out there doing it so why shouldn't we try?"
