Iohan Gueorguiev – Bikepacking Argentina: The Patagonia Express ( SEE THE WORLD episode 34)

101644

34th episode of biking from Alaska to Argentina and around the world. This one takes place right after the snow and cold of episode 33, Winter Road. The plan was to get to Argentina where I heard there is less rain and snow and try to find the old Patagonian Express, a train track through the Pampa where the steam train might still pass every now and then.
