Here are a few excerpts from that conversation with some videos of my travels mixed into the conversation. I hope you enjoy it.
While I was in London I was able to sit down with photojournalist and fellow Adorama TV host, Doug McKinlay, to talk about our different travel experiences.
Once I arrived in Lima I made a beeline for Touratech, Peru. I wanted to get my pannier repaired and I wanted to buy a few odds and ends for my bike: new handles for the side panniers, a new helmet, thermals for the cold weather. I also wanted to get some off-road training.
Once I left Cuenca, Ecuador it was just a short ride to Peru. The lush green mountains and twisty roads fell away and I entered a land that of dirt and sand, gusty winds, and a horizon that seemed to stretch out forever. I was facing the first of many days in the desert.
