Join Couchsurfing to see Ross’s full profile. It’s free!
My name´s Ross Logan and I´m embarking on a journey that’s been long in the making: cycling through South America, north to south. I’m setting off from Medellin, Colombia, and over the next year or so I’ll ride through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile, before ending my trip in Montevideo, Uruguay.
I’ve been dreaming of doing a cross-continental bike trip for a long time and, after finishing up my contract teaching English in Bogota last December, what better time to start than now? I’m pretty unfit, don’t have much of a plan and have no idea how long it will take, but I’ve got a bike, a tent, 379 e-books and spades of ill-founded ambition, so I think I’ll be alright.
You can follow my progress on my blog www.rossedintranslation.com (link is external) which I’ll try to update with photos and ramblings as regularly as I can.
- I'm tall and lanky, like an orangutan after a punishing session on the rack.
- Over the last few years I've lived in Germany, South Korea and Colombia (although I only speak Spanish)
- I love penguins, documentaries, writing stupid songs on the guitar and recently learning languages.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I think couchsurfing is a brilliant way to meet people and really get under the skin of a place or a culture. In the times I've used it I've always been richly rewarded by the kindness and goodwill of my hosts and hope to someday open my home to others to repay this kindness.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
A couple of years back I cycled from Munich to Rome. 2 weeks of sweat, ridiculously beautiful views and a fuckton of wine and gelato.
