Meet Leonie Katekar, touring cyclist and grand adventurer!
She’s an Aussie, about our age and riding the ride of her life. She started in Guatemala in June and has just left the famous Pink House in Patagonia. Before she stated her trip, she found our blog and got in touch with us via email.
We shared lots of trip information and tips, including our nightly lodging notes. She has stayed in many of the places that we stayed and it has been great fun to see pictures of the places we passed through on our trip and to read her stories of adventures down south. This time someone else is doing the hard yards while we view it from our armchairs. For this, we are grateful to Leonie as it has let us re-live the trip one day at time, vicariously through her.
We stayed in the famous Pink House (well, famous to cyclists touring in Patagonia, anyway) on 14 December 2018. Leonie stayed there on 14 December 2019. We wrote on the wall, as you do as a touring cyclist staying in these places. We were super excited when Leonie posted the photo below in her facebook page. Our trip lives on – thanks Leonie!
Leonie is riding for a very good cause – she’s riding to fight cancer. You can follow her trip at the address below. And if you are so inclined, she has an easy donate here link.
Roll on Leonie!
