Cooling off on a hot day!
Live from the road! We just found this frog in our room…
Hiding from the rain and making rivers
Waiting out yet another tropical flash rainshower under makeshift shelter in the middle of the climb.
Quiz Friday! Sven bought a new helmet! He wanted it to match our team colours, but there was one tiny problem. Kira’s white helmet is no longer white due to long exposure to the sunlight. Kira’s helmet was purchased in Bolivia and at some point it turned yellow. Question: Please place your BETS on how long do you think it will take for Sven’s helmet to turn yellow and match Kira’s helmet!
Write your bets in the comments. The winner will get a personal kilometer as well as a place in our Hall of Fame (http://on.fb.me/1JAdFTC). The quiz ends on Monday (00:00 GMT). The winner will be announced when Sven’s helmet turns yellow. The winner will be drawn at random from all the correct entries.
Week 112. Pura Vida. Costa Rica has ‘Pura Vida’ written all over it: hotels are called pura vida, shops are called pura vida, soaps are called pura vida, wifi passwords are pura vida, boats are called pura vida, souvenirs have pura vida written on them and people greet each other with pura vida. What about us? Same old: two steps of pura vida, three steps back.
Live from the road: first ice cream in Central America!
Quiz Friday! Here are some screws from Sven’s bike. They are responsible for holding the stand of Sven’s bike. It’s not a vital part of the bike, but it could be very usefull. It could, but Sven’s bike is heavy, so it doesn’t take long to bend the screws…
Question: How long did it take to bend these screws?
Hint 1: We didn’t bend them on purpose. Hint 2: This happened more than once.

Week 111. Two steps forward, three steps back. We had a minor setback this week. Kira couldn’t walk for 3 days. Reason: bad muscle cramps. We became experts in muscle aches and cramps over the years, but this type of cramp was a new experience. So yeah, minor setback, but all is good now and we’re back on the road with our muscles of steel
Live from the road! Meet mimosa – the plant that reacts to touching! We like to touch them, hihihi
