5288,3 km

With just a few kilometers shy of the 5300 km mark, Ben and I have finished cycling on the rather unpretentious shores of Valparaíso. While we have covered a little less distance than we had aimed for – or, better yet, dreamed of – we find that we have reached our ultimate goal.

To our minds, what counts is not to have covered as many miles as possible, but to have lived through uncountable moments of excitement, challenge and joy. And the adventure is not yet over: I am planning a solo trip to Chile’s famed Lake Region (some claim it’s the northern end of Patagonia) before I fly to Lima, where I will meet Helene and explore Peru by other means of transportation.
