Ahoyhoy,
 
I think I left you as I left Campo Grande. My I was neverous for a long time waiting for something to go wrong with Sir Humphrey but we soon got used to each other again. We made it to the Brasilian-Paraguay border and decided to call it a day. The next morning it took my 15miles and…

Die roten Nebenstrecken in Paraguay erinnern an Australien

Jens: Nach der erfolgreichen Reparatur der Motorräder haben wir uns durch den argentinischen Chaco auf den Weg nach Paraguay gemacht. Die argentinische Polizei hat uns auf dem Weg
noch überrascht, aber so hatten wir zumindest etwas Abwechslung im tristen argentinischen Chaco. Paraguay ist ein Land, das unsere Neugier geweckt hat. Viele deutsche…

Two Day Ride to Salta…

Before I left Asuncion, I studied the area I was going to be riding through to get to Salta in Argentina… The reason for going back there was to avoid riding through Paraguay to Bolivia, because I had no knowledge of the conditions that I would have to ride in to get there from Asuncion… [...]…

I Won’t be Sending Postcards…

After a brief thunderstorm, which left the streets running with grimy water mixed with litter, I took a walk to get some air… The air I smelt made me long for my air-conditioned hotel room after just a few blocks… I covered a grid of six city blocks around my hotel, to see if there [...]…

Paraguay…!!

We were beset with bad luck for a good part of the day today…!! The night before, I had a runny nose, and hoped that it was just a sinus thing… My hopes were dashed the following morning…!! I woke up with a bad case of flu, feeling as if I had been run over [...]…

#46 The Triumph of the Sun: Chaco Regions

‘The earth burns with the quenchless thirst of ages, and in the steel blue sky scarcely a cloud obstructs the unrelenting triumph of the sun.’ I honestly do not think Winston Churchill’s description of the deserts of the Sudan are an elevated portrayal of how it felt to travel by motorcycle through Paraguay (and as it turns out North-Western Argentina)…

#45 Carnaval Paraguayan-Style!

No trip to South America could be complete without attending Carnaval but with no plans to visit Rio we were happy to settle for what Paraguay had to offer. We had heard there was more bare flesh, more brazen performers, and more crowd involvement and it lived up to its reputation: plenty of skin on show and a lot of spray…

#44 Diamond in the Rough: Itaibu to Encarnacion

Read the original post and follow Aotearoa to the Andes's overland adventures on their website: Aotearoa to the Andes.


As the wildlife of Itaibu didn’t quite live up to expectations we decided to try our luck at another National Park further south. That didn’t work out too well either. Bad map, no information, usual story. When we asked a local to point us in the right direction and she indicated heading towards Argentina, the opposite direction of where the…

#43 (un)Welcome to Paraguay

Read the original post and follow Aotearoa to the Andes's overland adventures on their website: Aotearoa to the Andes.


In our entire time in South America we have only met one tourist who has travelled to Paraguay. Possibly something to do with the little tourist infrastructure available, and the fact that it only emerged from the longest dictatorship in history in 2008. Still, our research suggested there was an abundance of wildlife and nature reserves, religious Mennonite colonies in…
