Barely recovered from my last tour, a circumnavigation of Morocco with Edelweiss Bike Tours, I’m writing one story while preparing for the next one… In just over a week I’ll be flying off to South America and joining Motolombia on their giant loop through Colombia tour, I’m very excited for this one!
Don’t screw it up Fonz. Lest you make enemies in a new land. Just because you were taught that America was discovered by Christopher Columbus, that doesn’t mean that’s how he spelled his name! His true name was Cristoforo Colombo and thus the country of Colombia is named in his honor… fix your spellchecker and good luck with your cellphone’s autocorrect function!
