To leave the road and head off the beaten track by motorcycle in the Colombian mountains was super exciting. It certainly required some practice and a bit of explanation before heading for a spin into the forest. I personally found the ride a bit too loud and uncomfortable compared to a mountain bike.

However, it was probably the best location to give it a try. You can enjoy the speed up- and downhill without getting out of breath. It is great to try all kinds of things. You learn to control your body and the motorbike with a little bit of effort. It definitely improves your body feeling and coordination. I am planning to do it in a different location again to increase the speed and hope to do some jumps.

We are Marta and Ben, a Polish-German couple currently traveling the world. We’ve met last year, both with specified and fixed plans, following two different paths. And even though it seemed impossible, we decided to be together against all (so many!) odds. Since then we travel together, share big and small dreams, live great moments and face troubles. We laugh loud and argue loud, we cry, smile, party and have fun together each day. We live in constant need to visit new places. We share the urge to discover, learn and understand new cultures, traditions and customs. We crave to see all world’s wonders. We want to meet beautiful people and get to know their stories. We would like to listen to local music, taste delicious food, swim in different seas and sleep under different skies. We wish to speak various languages but sometimes just stay speechless. We want an adventure. Our dream and plan is to travel from Argentina to Alaska on a tandem bicycle and visit all the countries of South, Latin and North America. This means that we are going to cover the distance of 30 000 km in three years time.
