Sam & Grandad Across the Andes: The art of living. As seen on TV 2 in Norway.

Norwegian adventurer, author and TV presenter Samuel Massie is traveling around the world on a quest to fulfill his 83 year old grandad's bucket list. I was lucky enough to be invited to join them in Portugal, Brasil, Argentina and Chile to take pictures, and had some of the best times and laughs of my life!

 

One of Grandad's biggest dreams has been to ride an old Royal Enfield sidecar motorcycle across the Andean Mountains. A route from the foothills in Mendoza, Argentina and all the way across to Santiago, Chile was chosen. Along the way, we set up camp with a view to the snow capped peak of Aconcagua, which at 6961 metres is the highest mountain on the entire American continent! After a few polite and not so polite protests from the old bike as it laboured its way up sharp inclines through the heat and dust, it finally carried the pair across the border at Christ the Redeemer, Paso de Uspallata, 3832 metres above sea level. What a way to celebrate Christmas!
