This book is not a how-to, and it is not a thorough guide to South America. This book is about our love for motorcycle travel, about fulfilling dreams and taking risks, feeling alive and making mistakes, breakdowns and breakthroughs, falling down and getting up, interruptions and improvisation. It’s about the need for a radical change, and about leaving behind everything we know, to force our way into the unknown. This is a book about what happened to us when we decided to take a different path in life and ride our bikes from Brooklyn all the way to the end of South America.

WHAT WE LEARNED

When I started planning, I spent way too much time reading through endless online forums and random websites. I bought books, but as good as those stories were there was little to not information on how to think about the necessary things to take on a journey of this magnitude.

I was overthinking every detail, and over-preparing every aspect, only to build up lots of anxiety. After the trip, these questions are simpler and stress free. In this book I tried to gather as much of the things we learned preparing for the journey and later on the road. This is in many ways the book I wanted to read before we left.
