Welcome to my website. I am Maria and I am a motorcycle travel addict !


In 2004, we went backpacking around Peru. I hated the lack of independence, dependant on buses going from one
tourist town to another tourist town....In a hotel lobby in Puno, on the edge of the lake Titicaca, I saw a motorbike. The
number plate was British. Someone was travelling by bike around South America!

We never met the biker. By the time we came back from visiting the floating Islands, the bike was gone. I never
completely forgot that bike
because I was already thinking of doing a long overland motorcycle trip around South
America. I was not the only one having crazy ideas then... It kept me thinking.

After some research, I put my plan to Alistair. It did not take too much work to convince him!

So that i
s how it started. In 2007 we set off for south America on a year long tour with our motorbikes! Since then, there
had been many more adventures!


What else to say. I am French and Alistair is "Anglais". Hence the website name.

We met in 1995, in Paris when Alistair was sent to Paris by his company, for a couple of months. In 1997 we moved to
the UK, for better job opportunities in London... We never looked back.
