Uruguay

The adventure continues with Ammon and Sasha: Looking at a map the road south from Posadas follows the western border of Uruguay with multiple border crossings to choose from. As we were on a night bus it made some sense to stop at the furthest south crossing (more […]

EXPLORATION – Uganda By Motorcycle

LAST WEEK on Twitter we explored the topic of EXPLORATION on “The Road Less Travelled” (#TRLT).
