Looking for inspiration for a tour of Latin America....

Hi everyone,

Over two years ago my partner and I went out on our first cycle tour - knowing absolutely nothing about anything! We toured Southeast Asia and made as many stupid mistakes as possible, learned a lot and generally fell in love with cycle touring.

We've got a plan to get back out on the road in 2 years for a year-long tour of Central and South America. 2 years seems like a long way away and I joined to get a little inspiration and see what I can learn while I wait!

I'd love to hear anything from those of you who have experience in this region.

Also, if you're interested about Southeast Asia or just reading about the idiotic fumbles of two first-time tourers I've written a complete account here:

Thanks!

Thanks all, for the welcome. Loved666, are you touring India right now? If you've got a journal I'd love to read it.
