The Estrada Real

Following the Estrada Real (Royal Road), a road that connects the resource rich colonial cities of Minas Gerais in Brazil. The skies opened up soon after I took this pic and I was wrestling the SE through the orangish clay mud which made for a long riding day.

Todo sur

After thousands of miles and a year of travel I’ve reached the southern tip of South America and the end of ruta 3. Tierra del Fuego, Argentina

Hemis Monastery

Essentially carved into the side of the mountain, the Hemis monastery has stood for almost 1,000 years. Hemis Monastery, Ladakh, India

El Amatillo

The infamous El Amatillo border crossing at the frontera of El Salvador and Honduras. I actually had a pretty good experience here so I can’t complain.

Lago Atitlan

After a brisk hike up Volcan San Pedro I’m rewarded with a stunning view of Lago Atitlan. San Pedro, Lago Atitlan, Guatemala

Jumping the Darien Gap

Loading the SE onto the Stahlratte for our voyage through the San Blas Islands enroute to Colombia. Carti, Panama


I’m not typically a fan of beach resorts but this Peruvian retreat was a great place to spend Thanksgiving and the only time I would leave the Andes while in Peru.

Visiting with Coco

Stopping off to visit with Coco of Baja racing fame.
