I will be on my way all the way through south america.

thats the plan anyways.

It will be my first time leaving the country, except one time in canada.
What are some really basic things i should know?

-i will be using a motorcycle.

-i want to see everything on the way down

-i can speak spanish so-so. by the time i leave i will be fluent.

-i want to get a grasp of both ancient and current cultures in south america.

give me some advice! this is the first time in my life i've felt secure enough to actually get joy from travelling.

If you want to "see everything on the way down", there are some neighbourhoods I can direct you to.

Where are you planning on going in Canada? If you're on a bike, make sure you have a helmet (tough laws) and learn about the metric system. You might get that down pat in a year. I dunno, I still convert some things.

I really wish you could edit it.

I have this picture in my head of you riding a bike from Canada to South America, with your helmet on and a fish under one arm. Very Happy

I highly recommend you have menudo if you are passing through Mexico. This is a very flavorful tripe-based stew (and is better than anything you will find in Canada).

Yes. Carrying a whole length of tripe can be a smelly business, and will surely get you checked out at a border crossing.

I do worry, ogionik, re your recent reactivation in interest in marijuana. Says she who was damned lucky some time ago. On the other hand, much to be learned from travel.

osso - ain't that the truth! And some things are best learned by oneself Smile

That should be an interesting trip. I mean, tripe.

Just curious, how much motorcycling experience do you have?

And how the hell would you bring a dog on a bike...gonna get one with a sidecar?

I've always wanted to do a motorcycle-tour vacation...somewhere like Alaska or Canada.

Just finished a book by a guy re-doing Hillaire Belloc's Path to Rome, a walk from Toul, France through the Alsace into Switzerland, cross the Alps, and down through Lombardy and Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, to Rome. Different points of view a hundred years apart. I was glad I read it but didn't have to walk it. (No, not Belloc's book, sorry).

Also read a book about a guy bicycling from Boston as a fattie to LA as a thinnie, with many good stories.

Soon I'll read about someone flying..

Oh, gosh! I was going to comment on the (presumed) typo, but you're all so funny, I can't top that.

And the dog in a sidecar, looking like Snoopy the Flying Ace!

Seriously, you can't go. You may be able to take your dog, but you are probably not going to be able to bring her back into the country. Be very sure of this before leaving the country.
