That's why we take the bends very carefully!

Hi you two, reading through your blog always brings back such fond memories and a chuckle..... love the Italian who lost his licence 😂😂😂 I know on our journey back into the states the wealth seemed obscene.... just as I left the uk, consumerism gone mad. I'm sure a lot of the Americans voting for trump think he will make them rich. Of course he can 300 million people just a small businesses!!! Continue enjoying life. Merry Christmas to you both and all the very best for 2017 xxx

Tim. On his way to Chile

Tim's motorcycle trip
I came across your card in my things today and decided to take a look at the blog. If you're wondering, I didn't make it to Chile this time around. After about 2 months I had a bad wreck in Mérida and ended my trip. I will complete it in the future. Hopefully with a partner next time. Glad to see that your travels continue and that you are having a good time. All the best- Tim
