It is time for us to take a break. For the first time since the beginning of this trip we get off our bikes, and decide to go back to sedentary life for a few weeks.
We are entering our third adventure country: Mexico. And to get us in the mood, we decide to tackle this new challenge through Baja California. 1500km of desert and cacti, which we travel with others bikes travelers we meet on the road. It is then by ferry that...
