Pablo Garcia personal history, a middle-class Argentinean guy who expects to travel around the world by bike. He plans to accomplish his goal in two years and half. But after more than eleven years, the economic difficulties in his country and a love relationship on the way still stop him from totally fulfilling his dream.
From “Uyuni” my path continued throughout one of the most breathtaking views on the planet, “El Salar de Uyuni” and “Reserva de fauna andina Eduardo Avaroa”. To get into this 500km that extends between 3600-5000m above sea level, with temperatures as low as -15°C, has been one of my major challenges. Despite the roads have been insanely rough, where you regret, fuss, yell and cry, undoubtedly the effort was worthy due in such trip, intense sensations come alive and reaches your soul.
After cycling for 146,000 km, upon my arrival to Maceio I stopped to rest and to do some time traveling. In this article, I share with you my first years in Brazil and how the idea of touring the World by bike was born. I’ll also tell you about the magic of returning to the Nova Vrajadhama farm in Pernambuco, a community of monks whose teachings and protection I take to make my dream come true.
My dream came true!!! The Project “Cycling Around the World” is done!!! Finally I arrived in Brazil and after cycling through northeast I came back to Maceio! Here with my friends, who saw me leaving in June 1999 with the goal of cycling around the world. After 14 years on the road and 146,000 km covered I am back. I was very naive, because I planned to do it in 2½ years. But the journey is not over yet, I will cycle home, Buenos Aires.
