I pee ales

Not a single photo today! C – We decided to spend two nights in Ipiales so we could get Mabels rear tyre sorted. Neither of us were keen to repeat the three flats in 60km again! Unfortunately, Ipiales is a standard border town and a little uninspiring, but there were tons and tons of motorcycle…

I licked the wall, and it was salty

T – We found a small section of motorcycle shops today where we could get Chantelle some new footpegs and bits and pieces and one of the stores directed us to a mechanic. With Rosie running he grabbed his test light and poked about a bit before declaring her stator to be dead. We knew…

Please Mr Policeman, don’t take my bike

T – Zipaquira here we come! Reading up about this underground salt church place seems quite interesting. We are both looking forward to it as it is quite an unusual thing. But first we had to get there. We intended to use the highways so we could make good time, and here in Colombia we…
