[S2 – Eps. 68] ESCAPING more destructive rain in BOLIVIA!

[S2 – Eps. 68] ESCAPING more destructive rain in BOLIVIA!


Do you need help? – Yes, he needs it Good morning Internet! It is 06:55
in the morning and welcome back to the channel. I just look outside for the
first time since I woke up. I’m really happy to see this.. hello – so I’m gonna
leave early I’m gonna have breakfast now and then leave, because.. I’ll explain you why I’m leaving extra early today that is because more rain is coming. I
think the lady will come.. but, ummm so yesterday I waited here. Yesterday was
sunny, it was dry, which was good and I would have wanted to wait today as well
to make sure that the paths are dry and that there’s.. I don’t know.. that the water
crossings are a little bit less intense! But the problem is that this afternoon
it’s gonna rain again, and then the weather forecast predicts like four days
of heavy rain. So I better get out of here before that happens. And now the
weather forecast said that it starts raining at one o’clock, so.. and I have one
hundred kilometers to go before I hit the main roads, so I’m going to do the
plan that I explained in the last video: I’m gonna ride another dirt road out of
here, to the main road and then try to make it to La Paz in one day. So the
first hundred kilometers will be on dirt and then after that it’s another
two hundred seventy on tarmac so it’s gonna be a long day, and especially that
first hundred kilometers. Knowing my average speed on these type of roads
it’s gonna be tricky to even make it before the rain starts again. So that’s
why I thought: okay I leave early.. Leave in time and try to get out of here before
this really bad weather comes again. So that’s the plan. This is where Dhanno has been staying: inside the garage here, but now she has a little friend here blocking
the way out. This is my breakfast before I go, it looks really good! I got some
coffee with milk this is super fresh cheese, I’m sure she got it from the
market yesterday. It looks amazing! Then some bread and and omelet. So I’ll quickly finish this and then hit the road because now it’s already almost 7:30, so.. see if we can pass this Not sure if I’m supposed to ride here,
but I don’t know.. there’s no other way, I think. Look at all that fresh produce,
from all the mountains.. It’s super busy in town. Yesterday there was nobody! Bye! So now the race against the
clock starts.. I have about five hours to get on the paved road. If there is any rainfall there, it is no problem. So in those five hours I have to cover
100 kilometres, so that should be possible Given that my average speed on
those type of roads is about 25 km/hr, so it should be doable, but I have to.. braaap braaap braaap ride, ride, ride, before it’s too late..
okay so this is the.. how do you say that? “junction”.. I came from that road two days ago and now I’m gonna go take this one hopefully the road is in okay condition and no landslides See? So this is a last glance on
Independencia. It’s quite large hey! Yeah this is a GoPro thing, so most
likely you won’t see it.. but then I will tell you what I see! I see those clouds
there and just above the clouds I see super high mountains and I see snow on
top and those are the first snow-capped mountains since.. I don’t know..
somewhere in Patagonia. Definitely the first.. No! I forget! No, of course there
was snow in the Altiplano, yeah I forgot.. but still.. super cool to see snow-capped
mountains. Those are seriously high mountains there Llamas on the road! Hello there! Passing through a small village.. Wow look at this view here.. First village I’m passing through since
Independencia.. the people are looking at me like:
what earth is that? Not many motorcycle travelers pass through here, I have this feeling.. What a place to live..
Imagine having this view every single day. There’s a bus coming. See, I
already thought that this road was being used by bigger vehicles as well. Because it’s quite okay. Still, I’m impressed that buses and trucks ride here but.. Let me wait here for that bus. What a nice ride! I think this road is much better because
I’m riding all the time really high up.. So yeah, here you have a lot less landslides and stuff. The road that I took towards Independencia, it was a lot lower,
so yeah, there you get a lot more water on the road, you get landslides.. Whereas
if you’re riding like almost on the mountaintops, it’s safer in that regard Nice.. No I can’t.. After Independencia I couldn’t follow the Ruta 25 anymore it’s closed.. – And now, you will arrive this afternoon until where? Until La Paz? -Yes Do you need help? – Yes, he needs help! Do you have petrol? Yes? What things are you bringing? My entire life is here Very good! Yes.. you are going to Independencia? Yes, but I live here. You live here? Yes What is your name? Jorge My name is Noraly And your name? Nice to meet you. In that case, have a good journey! You too! I wish you all the best! Thank you! I wish you the best, bye! I stopped to see if everything was okay
with this bike, because he was walking.. but all seemed good. Thank you Oh baby llamas! Oh aren’t they just the cutest things? hello! hey! I wanna take home! So cute.. I am at the paved road.. look at this.. Oh Paved road.. It’s now 12 o’clock, so it took me
four hours to do this hundred kilometres kind of as expected.. Before the rain: no
rain! I am out of the woods! If there is any rain now then it will not be any problem.. Very smooth! And welcome to Bolivia’s de facto
capital: La Paz! And La Paz is full of these.. how do you call them? Thingies.. which are the main public
transport in the city.. it is awesome! I’m definitely going to ride one of those, or
a couple even. They are the best way to move around the city here.
Here, check this out.. Oh amazing, right? How widespread it is,
it’s incredible, what a city.. Look.. cool right?
This capital really is one of a kind Look at this.. have you ever seen a city
like this? Or, a capital city? Look here’s a station, see? So cool! No traffic lights here..
it’s a bit of a weird situation. I’ll just go.. Greenhouse Hostel So this is my room.. and I even have a
private balcony.. Look at this! With view on the cable car and Dhanno!
So that’s perfect. Let me sit down.. what a day. Eight hours riding.. I didn’t stop
to have a lunch, I’m super hungry, so I’m just gonna eat something now because it’s like four o’clock but I was just like let’s just get here. And yeah, what a day.. I loved it!
First hundred kilometers on the dirt road, it was spectacular. So, so, beautiful.
Every turn I was like: wow look at this view, look at this view.. and then as soon
as I hit the paved road it was a little bit boring. I was back at the Altiplano
so everything appears to be quite flat even though I was at 4,000 meters. But
yeah, the road wasn’t too interesting from that point on but yeah.. and then you
arrive in La Paz with the view. It’s not my first time, it’s my second time to La
Paz. I’ve been here eight years ago and yeah this is a pretty special city and
just the views, it’s just amazing so I’m going to spend a couple of days here. I
think the next video I will take one of these cable cars around the city and
there’s some things I have to sort out.. Fix the Speedo of Dhanno and a
couple of other things. I also need to extend my visa, because my 30 days in
Bolivia are almost over.. so I have to figure out how to extend my visa. It
shouldn’t be a big problem but I have to do it anyway. So, there’s quite
a few things I have to do in La Paz But you’ll see that in the next video, so that was it for today I really hope you liked this video, if you
did, please give me a big thumbs up and subscribe down below and then I’ll see
you in the next video!

  1. Follow me on Instagram (@itchybootstravel) or Facebook (Itchy Boots) to find updates on the current Covid-19 situation and how I’m dealing with it.. in the meantime, stay safe and healthy everybody! ❤️

  2. Thanks, Noraly, for bringing some sanity into an insane world.
    As ever,
    Big thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻,
    Take care and stay very safe.
    From Geoff in a rapidly closing down Staffordshire, UK 🇬🇧

  3. Noraly stay healthy. The coronavirus is going to be everywhere eventually. I live in the USA and I can tell you it’s spreading fast. You will be safe on your bike but in towns it may get dangerous. If you can find N95 masks you might want to get some before they sell out.

  4. It finally dorned on me, Norally singing in her helmet (as we all do)that she has created a world wide family by sharing this adventure. I love to read the comments, they are part of the experience of Itchy Boots. So many echo my thinking entirely so thank you to Norally and all the "family".

  5. Sheer 3500m drop on the right…llamas on the left and all of that above the mountains. If I google adventure rider…the first thing that comes up better be Noraly and dhano!

  6. Another great video. Possibly may have helped if he (9:18) had given the kick starter a full travel kick instead of barely half.

  7. WOW…is so interesting, a real life, day by day life with all the negative news from all around the world on Covid-19 …and our 15-20 min. life …every other day … ..Noraly's life…with all the beauties in your journey, thank you for this and stay safe and healthy … all the best wishes for you Noraly !!!

  8. Jorge and his buddy have one of those EV Bikes, you kick it 5,000 times and it charges for a 3 mile distance. Actually, looked like they were a little stranded but still happy about life.

  9. The early music made my feel like "we" were beginning an epic quest. Later through the beautiful mountain scenery the music felt like a fantasy trip through middle earth, followed by some modern beats on the long long highway. Love he drone shots. I love how you show us how spectacular this planet is. The people living in all kinds of environments fascinates me. Cable gondola's are the public transport???. I am obviously a frog in the bottom of a well. Thanks for sharing. Ride safe.

  10. Hi noraly. Take care through this corona frenzy . Pls take a break or avoid corona high alert locations. Again, love your journey and you are cuter than the Lama babies 😊

  12. Hola. Desde Perú… Saludos Noraly….. Me gusta tus videos… Eres inspiradora… Yo tengo motocicleta. Y me gustaría viajar igual….

  13. My wife and I started watching you Noraly about ep45 or so and now just watch this thru chromecast, rather than TV. After this episode I couldn't work out why I could not navigate to next episode. Took me a while to spot that it was only posted yesterday! But well done, you are doing a fantastic job, thorough and professional. Hope you are getting what you deserve from it! Stay upbeat and upright, look forward to next installment!…

  14. Bom diA minha querida noraly ótimo diA 👑😍❤️❤️top video parabéns 👍 sempre LindA beijos minha rainha

  15. If you come to Japan someday.
    You don’t have to bring your REH.
    Because Japan is small country.
    You don’t need big moto.You can use my Super Cab 90 for Japan tour free.
    If you like to.

  16. Saludos Noraly, sugiero te quedes en un pueblo pequeño lo más aislado posible, hasta que pase la cuarentena. Que te mantengas en salud. Exito

  17. well once you got up above the clouds you had a nice sunny ride, and the rode seemed a lot dryer. as for riding in town WOW there are some steep hills there. so guess you have to keep in one place while the lock down is going on. be safe out there

  18. I’m afraid that Coronavirus may have put an end to your journey. Seems that you are stuck in Peru where the virus is just ramping up and all private transit is prohibited. Most important is your health. Please take care of yourself.

  19. Take care Noraly! at the same time, how's Dhanno? It seems like your speedometer isn't working fine. All the best!

  20. Thank you for this. I only discovered your channel a few weeks ago and have become addicted. I too have an adventurous spirit, but mine wants to be home for supper . . . You're expanding my horizons. Thank you.

  21. Hi Noraly, Ik zag Basanti op de motorbeurs in Utrecht en had van mijn neef al wat over je gehoord, dus dacht laat ik ook eens kijken maar WOW wat een mooie avonturen maak je mee. Ben niet jaloers (echt wel) je hebt er nu in ieder geval weer een Nederlandse fan bij en ik blijf je volgen. Mooie video's en blijf gezond hier in Nederland gaat het niet goed met het corona, hoe is het daar?

  22. I hope you can stay healthy as we were in the US in AZ and they closed the border to Canada and this virus is going to hit South America very very hard!! All the borders are going to closed very soon all across the world and I am very scared for you! Please here in Canada the airlines are shut down! Along with our border with the USA,we have to isolate ourselves for 2 weeks and this day4 for us 10 more days to go. Please take all Precaution all the time!!!

  23. Hi dear I think your name noor Ali I see your all videos it's such a beautiful videos I am from Pakistan so I hab u came to visit to my country I hab u so liked and enjoye 🇵🇰teak care 👍😀😀😀

  24. Riding with Noraly is a new adventure every time. From motoring unstoppably through mud, ruts and washouts, to breathtaking drone shots in the mountains, to cable cars and free range traffic in La Paz. All with that unshakeable good humour. Jiving on the bike to that great new music was a magical moment!!

  25. Noraly, just following up with a quick message. Not sure where you presently are, but my neighbour who is originally from Columbia and has family there just informed me they have a major lockdown where there may be a curfew and only one family member is allowed out at any given time. Please stay safe. 🇨🇦🇨🇦

  26. South Korea has developed 10 minutes test for coronavirus, US is about to start producing similar test in april. So… it's about 2-3 months so that this whole story start to cool down. At least some point to consider in planning (taking into account that widespread testing allowed to control situation in Korea). Two months is long wait, but at least there is some hope now the situation will calm not in years, but quite soon

  27. There's a dutch band named The Gathering. In 1998, they released an album called "How to Measure a Planet?". So, Noraly is trying to answer the question.

    "Miles and miles I run
    /I hear my feet/And I hear myself breathe/Heavily/I trust the speed/Until I have no need/To run anymore" (track 13. Problably Built in the Fifties)

  28. Noraly, I found the UK website reviewing the Himalayan; where most of the comments attributed the increase in yearly sales to you (!): 'Why Royal Enfield's UK Sales Are Up By 122%', 22 Jan 2020.

  29. One more great ride…. Sorry for late viewing… As we are in lock down mode now…so running for necessities of home from two days…
    Thank you NORALY…

    Stay safe.. hope you dealing your way with corona… Avoid hand shake if you can for some time…

    ♥️♥️♥️👍👍👍

  30. Noraly avoid shakehands , avoid talking too close …. take a distance at least 2 meters…. keep safe ride … and be safe

  31. Noraly, I think you should park your bike at a safe place in La Paz and take the first flight back home to the Netherlands.
    These countries you travel in do not have a health system that can handle the pandemi of the corona virus. Right now is it about to spread very quickly in USA. Borders will probably be closed. So get out of there the sooner the better.
    Stay safe.

  32. It would be a great journeys traveling with a bike ( sadly i just have a old kapcai bike only 😆)….wish I could be have a positive spirit and bravely just like you.

  33. I’m sure that I’m not the first, and certainly won’t be the last to urge you to take great care of yourself during this Coronavirus outbreak. You are extremely vulnerable out there, and help may not be readily on hand. Very good luck, and keep safe. All the best.

  34. In 1958, my family moved to Cochabamba and although I was only five, I still have vivid memories of the beautiful country, the wonderful people and the delicious food. Your videos are bringing it all back. Stay safe, JC

  35. Сначало лайк, потом просмотр. Ты просто душка. Ждём твои видосы всегда

  36. Coronando el vuelo de las montañas,
    Coronando la brisas de la libertad,
    Este fué el camino de otra moto vieja y oxidada,
    Esta es una pequeña brisa que entra por ventana,
    Encierros domiciliarios por el dictador Virus-Monarca.

  37. Olá Noralys tudo bien? Sigo sua canal desde ele número uno, parabiens. Vi ahora que está em Perú, caso dele corona vírus. Mui bueno e mui lindo sua vídeos. Jo queria saber que app edita sus vídeo. Gracias e um buen estadia em Peru.

  38. I think you should be careful. I think your pushing your luck with the taking the back roads and helping and talking to strange men. Be careful!!!

  39. Thanks for sharing your exciting adventures in my beloved country. May God keep blessing you with Love and Good Health to be able to continue your journey and share more. I Like the way you appreciate the simple things in life because they're the best. I also love the fact you don't need company in order to fulfill your dreams and be happy. Keep being positive but most of all keep being you cause we all love you just as you are 😊 😍😍
