I still had to organize some cash in order to survive the first couple of days in Bolivia. I heard many stories that ATM’s are scarce and so I was trying to withdraw some Reals in Caceres which I could exchange later on in Bolivia. After the second bank and 4 credit cards later I […]
On my way to Caceres and through the Transpantaneira, I did not only feel exhausted I also realized the first weaknesses of the accessoiries of my bike. It was not the first time that the GIVI support failed in holding the construction together.
When I asked Douglas of what to consider when going into the Pantanal his simple answer was: “Don’t get too much drunk and sleep on the floor. Anacondas might want to eat you.” Haha… And also: “You are wearing motorbike boots, you should be ok for snake bites.” LOL! Ok, I suddenly realised to be […]
The famous Transpantaneira. I was finally there, after I spent one night in the small town of Poconé where I really just relaxed and wrote a bit on my blog. Honestly, there was nothing else to do but to get prepared for the trip to Porto Jofre, a tiny fishermen village 150 km further South, deep in […]
36° Celsius during day time, I finally arrived in Brazil, even though apparently it is winter. Yesterday, I used my day off in Cuiaba to organise another external hard drive, a white coloured long sleeve and a cap to be protected from the sun. I was ready to hit the Pantanal…

With every new day I was getting closer to the Pantanal, making it more predictable by when I should be finally arriving in Porto Jofre. My friend Chris who recently went to the exactly same spot recommended to book a Jaguar Safari way ahead in order to guarantee a hotel as well as a tour […]
Even though the burger from yesterday was cheap, I totally ruined my stomach and would have wished to have had something else. The night was not really a glory but luckily I felt ok again this morning. Today’s ride was leading me again through rich agricultural landscapes and besides plants I could also see cattle […]
After a “tranquilo” morning, lots of sleep and a long breakfast I packed my stuff and kissed Foz do Iguacu Good Bye. I had some fabulous days in this place and left with some melancholy towards my next destination of the day – Mundo Nova.
After visiting the Iguacu Falls yesterday in Brazil, I was more than excited to also see the “heaven” from the Argentinian side. Everyone I met until so far was even more amazed by the “other side” and I could not wait to step over the border.
