Morocco day 4: Tahnaut to Imlil

Leaving Tahnaut after a good breakfast. The road goes smooth and despite it being very narrow in some parts, it doesn’t seem dangerous. The landscape seems to be nicer, entering the mountains. Looking for accommodation, asking around….could found “Chez Maachou” in Imlil. A small guest-house in a secluded village. To reach the guest-house one has […]

Marocco day 3: Leaving Marrakech

Leaving Marrakech, heading to the mountains. the first stretch is flat, but the exit of the city is crazy. I wanted to buy a spare tube and noticed that, as opposite to South America it IS possible to just buy a normal 28″ tube for a bike. Even with the GPS, getting out of the […]

Day 45. Departure day

Km today: 0 Well, I allowed myself to wake up very late. The plane is at 5 pm, so there is plenty of time. After writing Air France two days ago a message about the bike packing and (as expected) receiving no answer back from them, I decided to take the risk and go to […]

Day 44. Buenos Aires

Km today: 25 (no GPS today) Not much to say for today, I decided not to stress with main tourist objectives, just take it easy, strolling/ biking on the streets. But, first of all, I need to check that I can take off the pedals. Of course I didn’t manage with my toolset, I get […]
