Our motorcycle adventure in Bolivia was the first long journey that Ben and I took away from our children (then ages 4 and 7). During our extensive research in planning the trip, we considered many countries and finally selected Bolivia. We wanted a very challenging ride, with long days of riding and difficult terrain. We found Maurice of Moto-Andina to be our guide, and he worked with us to design a custom 13-day route that started in the capital city of La Paz and made a large figure “8”, with a southern loop through the high plains (altiplano) and a northern loop through the mountainous jungles. After our route was finalized, Maurice asked if he could invite other riders along; we enthusiastically agreed, and four Belgians joined us for the fun.
