Snapshots from the second half of Ed’s trip: a journey north into the desertscape of the Peninsula de la Guajira, the most northerly tip of South America, followed by a side trip to La Mina, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.
From two wheels to four (by four) - double the discomfort
fleeting vistas distract: arid desert
and hidden coves.
Guajira colours: burnt orange cliffs meet turquoise sea
deep red earth
and fiery skies.
Textures: the spiky
and the smooth.
Settling into desert accommodation
and adjusting to desert pace.
Facilities with a view
Admiring the penthouse suite
and meeting the neighbours.
Heading north in style
past the lighthouse
Mountains of sand
shaped only by the wind
and our feet, running, running...
...until the land runs out. A new continent starts and ends
In the absence of tyres, we dip our toes
Only 17,000km to Patagonia
One last sunset
before a smoother ride back south
and a mountain detour. Naturally carved sunbathing
Hasta la proxima, Eduar Vuchier...
