Along the way, we are excited to visit some of the amazing historical sites, including the likes of Machu Picchu and Tikal, to mention just a few. Some of the places we will visit are frequented by tourists, but simply by the nature of our trip, we will often leave the beaten path. Whenever possible we will camp, sometimes for free at a river's edge (when available). From past experience, we know Chile is an absolutely wonderful country to visit, and I am sure many other countries will equally charm. We hope our video will draw others to this amazing part of the world.
We will begin posting our Youtube video blog, which will be available to follow, once the journey begins. We will also produce a full length version at trip completion! Think "Anthony Bourdain - Parts Unknown", but imagine it with Anthony riding the countryside camping off the back of a small motorcycle. Also imagine Anthony visiting the historical sites instead of the emphasis on food. Now that you have a picture in your head, remove "Anthony Bourdain" from that picture and replace it with 6 Canadian nobody's , including a chubby, middle-aged ginger who stands out like a sore thumb in Latin America (children often stare). Of course, if we bump in to Anthony Bourdain on the road in some little village, we will try to get it on video.
