Laura and Paddy, a couple from London, set off in May 2011 for a 15-month circumnavigation of South America by bike visiting each of the 13 countries.
In the past they have cycled the length and breadth of the UK and have covered 1,000 miles of the North Sea Cycle Route. It was so much fun that they decided to give up their jobs for a proper adventure to see a continent that neither of them have visited before.
They are cycling and camping around South America and are looking forward to some amazing scenery, meeting friendly people and pushing themselves with some challenging cycling over the Andes and through the Amazon rainforest.
