South America

Either the second half of the American continent, or a separate continent depending on how you see it. A huge landmass consisting of 12 countries, and the French colony of French Guiana. I arrived from Panama and was originally thinking of going anti-clockwise, meaning from Colombia and down the Andes, but the Andean rainy season is from October to April and so would have meant riding through beautiful mountains with minimal visibility and getting rather wet. That didn’t sound fun, so I decided to go clockwise instead. I expect that getting round will take between 18 and 24 months, but who really knows?
