Sajama

Four hours drive from La Paz towards Chile you have the Sajama National Park (4100m), with the second highest volcano in the world; Sajama (6542m), and as a side-effect thereof; hot springs.

We left at 7am and even so, there was quite a lot of traffic coming in and out of La Paz and El Alto. People here drive like they have 9 lives, yet they don’t. So you gotta be careful and if you don’t use your horn like a frantic, people wont think you are there. But once we turned south toward the Chilean border, traffic disappeared almost totally.

Well that decision took me over a decade.

Death Road

The fabled “Death Road” had to be tried out. A few years back this was still the main route between the lower lands and La Paz, Bolivia. And so there was alot of traffic coming up and down, making it very hazardous, since there are very few places on the 60km long stretch, where there is enough room for cars to pass eachother. The result was alot of backtracking and dangerous situations, and sadly alot of fatal accidents. A new road has taken the traffic away, and its now a godsend for mountainbikers.

Utvandrarleden vinter 2010

Fredag d. 5 februar – søndag d. 8 februar 2010. Fra Københavns Hovedbanegård til Vaxjo, vandring fraLessebo. Hjem fra Emmaboda.

Jimmy, mads og jeg selv tog en 3 dages tur til sydøst Sverige, for at prøve at gå noget af Utvandrarleden om vinteren. Vi ville egentlig have gået turen som langrend, men det lykkedes os ikke rigtig at få arrangeret det i tide, og med udsigten til selv at skulle lave spor, kunne vi ligeså godt ryge afsted med støvler.
