Spectacular Mountain Views

We invite you to enjoy the wonderful view that we had when we were cycling down the very last mountain. Just kidding, we didn’t see anything! It was the most surreal and awesome experience ever. We were going downhill between other hills in the sunshine at first. Later we have finally reached the point where we should see a valley from above. But instead the cloud surrounded us and laughed at our face. ‘Enjoy your highly anticipated view,’ he said. So we did. 20 kilometers in the cloud was truly the most awesome ride so far! After cycling blind for over an hour we have reached the end of the cloud and got a chance to see the sunlit valley after all. That view left us speechless.

Week 94

Week 94! The Andes are over! We expected that the day when we reach the last summit will be emotional. And it was. Just the emotions weren’t the ones that we expected. We didn’t feel happy that we’ve just reached the mayor milestone. We didn’t feel sad that a very nice chapter was over. Instead, we were frustrated and realised that some things haven’t changed since the first day and we still have a very long way to go. During 10.000 kilometers through the Andes we learned one thing: it doesn’t matter how many huge mountains you’ve already crossed – the hardest and the scariest will always be the next one, that you haven’t climbed yet. Even if it’s a 30 meters bump.

Quiz: First Climb over the Andes

Quiz Friday! Here is Sven and Tulku on our very first pass in the Andes. As you all know, we are climbing the last pass in the Andes this week. It seems we’ve been in the Andes forever. Question: when did we cycle the very first pass?
A: On the very first cycling day of the journey in Tierra del Fuego
B: Chile and Argentina are divided by mountain range, so it must be on the day you crossed to Osorno (Chile) from Bariloche (Argentina)
C: No way the Andes can be 10.000 km long! They might begin somewhere around Bolivia, so that’s where your first pass was.

Week 93

Week 93. Climbing the last pass in the Andes! There is only one peak left for us to climb in the Andes! Well, in fact there are 5 peaks left and we’re quite confused which one is the last. You see, the 3rd peak is the highest point and the 5th peak would be the last, but the climb to it’s top is only 100m of altitude, so it doesn’t really count. And the 4th peak is neither the highest, nor the last, but we’ll consider it the ultimate one. What do you think?. Anyway, afterwards we will roll downhill towards the Caribbean coast. Can’t wait!

Quiz: Animals in our Room

Quiz Friday! Here is Sven fighting an enemy. Salamanders, frogs, even chicken are usual acquaintances in the places we sleep. But this was a surprise even for us! Sven opened the door to our room and stood still. “Kira, there are 3 xxx in our room.”, that was all he said. Question: what animal did Sven see? Write your guess in the comments. Hint: this animal can fly!
