Viewing the World from a Two-Wheeled Perspective

Sept/Oct Adventure Motorcycle Magazine

Posted by on Oct 5, 2011 in Adventure Motorcycle Dual Sport News, Colombia, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | Comments Off on Sept/Oct Adventure Motorcycle Magazine

Adventure Motorcycle Dual Sport News? (http://www.adventuremotorcycle.com/) If so, this is a must-subscribe magazine, and not just because I have three articles in the Sept/Oct 2011 issue. In this issue I write about Mystical, Magical Colombia. Gosh I loved traveling in that Colombia.  I can’t wait to go back. (Lap # 2 of South America?!?) I’m told that the The November/December issue of ADVMoto Magazine is coming to over 300 Barnes and Noble bookstores around the US. Also included are the Barnes and Nobles College Bookmaster locations as well as some more adventurous independent stands near you! Please follow and like...

Las Lajas

Posted by on Mar 16, 2010 in Colombia, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | Comments Off on Las Lajas

February 16, 2010 Today’s agenda s a full one: Ipiaples and the beautiful Sanctuary of Las Lajas, a basilica church nestled in a crack between the mountains of southern Colombia. Then cross the border into Ecuador and hopefully make it to Quito all in one day. I have breakfast at the hotel and hit the road. It’s a beautiful ride up and out of the La Cocha valley. So I get a little mixed up in Ipiales again…I’m riding down this street I don’t like the environs so much, but then I spy some military guys. I like stopping to ask police and militarias directions because I feel safe.  So I pull over to the curb and shut off the engine. These kids with guns are not more than 20-22. Three of them all three come over and start...

February 15, 2010 I got a little later start than I would like, but it was worth waiting for the fog to clear off.  The Panamericana was great. qq Except for this poor guy… PEAJE! Up, down, across mountain ranges… Brunch. I was starving! Thsi was a really good roadside restaurant mean with fried bananas, salad, yucca, rice, and some stew/bean concoction. PEAJE! I get mucked around a bit in the city of Pasto, but find my way around and back out to the country to a special place that Mrs. Villegas told me about. I got bungled up in Pasto, but I am getting better and better with asking for (and understanding!) directions… And soon I got onto the right “country” road leading to Lago de la Cocha. Both Sory and Liliana had told me how gorgeous it...

Sunday in Popayan

Posted by on Mar 14, 2010 in Colombia, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | Comments Off on Sunday in Popayan

February 14, 2010 [Sunday] I bring some goodies over to the house and have breakfast with the girls. Andrea wants to take me for a tour of the things I have not seen yet in Popayan…and she’s not too hard to talk into going on my bike with me… Isn’t she cute? We ride up to the Bolivar statue, and sit amongst the lovers and families and chat for a while. The sun is at an awkward angle to take pics, and it’s hard not to capture the massive graffiti that is on the monument 🙁 Next stop is San Joe Church. It’s lovely. We walk to the main square… And there are some guys offering pics of kids on this little guy. Then it’s back to the fabrica for lunch. Why do we always go there for lunch?...
