The travel plan:
Longride tour in central
through Guatemala and
The project is a longriding tour in central america. I
ride together with Barbara Kohmanns
who has been riding in south and central america for about two years. We
start in Guatemala city in the middle of August and ride through
Guatemala and Mexico till the end of October.
goal of the trip
with the trip is to meet with central america, its nature and people and
to travel and live with a horse during a longer period. To travel like
this gives experiences that differs from an ordinary backpacker trip. We
ride away from the bigger roads. Every day we have to take contact with
people in the villages to get permission to let our horses graze there.
We will learn to know the people in a different way than an ordinary
tourist and we will also reach places that is difficult to reach without
a horse. It is also a challange to live in the nature with the changes
of the weather and to be two persons who will cooperate and live tight
together for three months.
