I'm a 36 y.o. Italian taking a gap year to travel with my bike in South America. I'll fly to Cartagena by the end of November and stay there a couple of weeks. When the weather will be ideal I'd like to reach Bogotà and I pretty much planned a route that takes me through national parks, along the Rio Magdalena and across the mountains. It will take approximately 20 to 25 days as I'd like to take it slow and spend some more time where it's worth it. I speak decent Spanish, I'm flexible and open to suggestions! This is just the first part of the trip across Ecuador, Perù, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina that will eventually lead to Ushuaia. I'm now looking for companions for this first part of the trip and then I will spend a period in Bogotà. I have my tent but also plan on sleeping in hostels or hotels as they are pretty cheap in Colombia.. I'd love to meet people on the road too and get hosted when possible to have a purer experience with locals and embrace Colombian culture.
I hope to find someone that would like to share all this also because safety, I'll have to admit, is one of my biggest concerns.
