[S2 - Eps. 61] WARNING: SHOCKING!! This is where your silver comes from.

In this episode I am going deep into the Bolivian Silver mines at Potosi. Mine Caracoles is at 4,400 meters altitude and the working conditions inside the mine are atrocious. It was a crazy experience for me, but unfortunately, the normal work environment for thousands of Bolivian people that work here every single day.

[S2 - Eps. 5] FIX THAT PUNCTURE!

Part 2 of the first day's ride. Can you believe that luck of catching a nail in the tyre on day numero 1?! On the other hand, this was good practice because it took me 2,5 hours to change the tube. I'm sure next time it will be faster!

But besides the thunderstorm, mud and flat tyre of this day, it was absolutely fantastic. Great trails, beautiful country side and a lot of wildlife keep me happy at any day! I hope tomorrow will be a slightly easier day though..

[S2 - Eps. 58] I’m LOST at 4,600 meters altitude in BOLIVIA

I am riding my Royal Enfield Himalayan on the Ruta de las Lagunas in Bolivia. This is day three and things are becoming more difficult. Heavy rainfall made some of the tracks hard to ride, but mostly, it was difficult to navigate. I kept on getting lost on all the tracks and ended up riding some narrow gorge at high altitudes by myself. But what an incredibly beautiful area!!

[S2 - Eps. 59] Surviving torrential downpour in Bolivia

In this episode I am riding the last part of Ruta de las Lagunas in Bolivia, while on my way to Uyuni. I thought it would be a short 25 kilometer ride until I would reach the paved road but due to heavy rainfall in the days before, the tracks were flooded, washed away and TOUGH!

[S2 - Eps. 69] Trying to get out of Bolivia because corona virus COVID-19 outbreak - ESCAPE!

The corona virus COVID-19 outbreak has caused many countries to suddenly close their borders. I was having a great time in La Paz, Bolivia (where up to that point only 11 cases of Corona were identified), when it was suddenly on the news that they were closing their borders. So I had to rush to get to Peru, in order not to be stuck in Bolivia.. Times are changing fast now, and it's impossible to predict or anticipate on the measures that countries are taking now to try and get the situation under control..

[S2 - Eps. 70] I have to leave my motorcycle behind...

In this episode I am visiting Island Taquile, situated on Lake Titicaca in Peru. I tried to take Dhanno with me, but the boat was so small that I figured that might not be the best idea ever! So I left Dhanno behind and went alone to see the island. On the way there, the boat also made a stop at one of the floating islands there.. fascinating!
