Argentina's fame is usually linked to tango and gauchos, but much many bike travelers are mostly attracted to its natural wonders that range from northern deserts to the southern Cordillera de los Andes and to the marvelous and desolate landscapes of the land at End of the World, a perfect place for a bike trip, Patagonia.
Just in this extreme land I decided, together with Alessandro, to make my first bike trip.
The enraptured descriptions by Chatwin (the book “In Patagonia” is a must-have for whom is going to make a travel in those lands) have actually influenced me in the choice of my first great adventure on two wheels, although boundless and “free” spaces have always extremely attracted a “prisoner” like me (since I live in the middle of the Alps – gorgeous for other reasons – infinite horizons are not very familiar to me!).
Brazil: my first intercontinental journey brings me to discover one of the richest countries in the world, speaking about biodiversity and natural beauty and home of, perhaps, the most cheerful, crazy and hospitable people. This is what I actually experienced about this country: nature, majestic performances given by water, animals and plants, jovial hospitality and delightful persons... But also poverty, misery, injustice and violence, unfortunately, always present in the big cities. The huge territory covered by this nation forced me to limit my itinerary to southern regions only, without reaching either the Amazon rainforest or the beautiful (at least they said me) coastal areas close to Salvador de Bahia. Anyway I was able to enjoy an exciting journey, with visions and meetings that will remain forever in my heart and eyes...
