Description

Volume 1 & 2 This book is the result of a motorcycle photo diary through Colombia, and volumes 1 and 2 are the first installment. 2 more books will cover the rest of the travels.
            
            This eBook is an enhanced edition with audio, videos, interactive maps, interactive GPS coordinates and more than 100 photographs of the people and places of Colombia, to make travelling with us a unique experience. It covers over 1300 kilometers south of the country, passing by one of the most complicated roads due to its historic guerrilla presence. The Cordillera Central, and the road to Tumaco.
            
            Also, we passed one of the most beautiful roads of Colombia (Popayán-Pasto), and another that is the most guarded by the army and police. The Tatacoa Desert, San Augustín, La Cocha Lagoon, Las Lajas Sanctuary and Bocagrande are some of the places we visited. This is only the beginning of the adventure...
            
            For some people, travelling thru Colombia by road is supposed to be a very dangerous endeavour, and even more if you go off the main roads. Andrés Restrepo and Juan Pablo Gaviria, two experienced bikers who share a passion for the unknown, leave their jobs on the side and go aboard on the adventure of travelling Colombia by motorbike. Roaming through barely travelled roads to observe and witness what they like to call the “real” Colombia… All there is to reach beyond the main cities. This is not the typical tourist book. This book is the result of unplanned photographs of a traveller going through places with a different perspective than finding a 5 star hotel and Dining. With the characteristic eagerness of a real traveller and the uncertainty of the biker who does not know where he is going to sleep at night, but with the pleasure of documenting the beauty of the people and places that they find in their path. The unique beauty of the landscapes of this country was the perfect excuse to start this madness. We hope this book will continue to inspire all those who love the uncertain when they venture into the future. This is only the beginning of an adventure, of a lifestyle, a dream and a life purpose. This book is the result of their Photographic Diaries thru Colombia.

    Although English is not the first language of the author, this is an easy conversational read. It has superb photographs and videos that help to tell their story, and get a better understanding of a marvelous country. If you ever wondered how Colombia actually is like, I recommend it.
  • Love the Pics!
