Drew Sullivan

I was born in Sydney, Australia – a sunny, multicultural city. At the age of 18 I spent 5 months vagabonding around India before I returned to my home town and started university to become a journalist.

Between classes I wrote for a newspaper called Sydney City News and on the weekends I rode my motorbike as far away as I could. I had a dream brewing, a motorcycle ride around South America. So when my university offered me a scholarship to study my final semester in Colombia, I accepted straight away. In Bogotá I bought a new motorcycle and rode it throughout Cundinamarca, Antioquia, Boyacá, El Valle del Cauca, Santander, the Pacific and the Caribbean coasts. Then in December 2010 I finished university and hit the road again. I rode down to Ecuador, across Peru, down through Chile, over to Argentina, up to Brazil, around Uruguay, over to Bolivia and then back up to Bogotá. It took me a year to ride that motorcycle 20,000km´s around South America, living my dream. Back in Bogotá, I was out of cash and in love, so I decided to stay a while and soon found a job as a travel writer with Mantaraya Travel.

The dream is to ride all the way up to Alaska. But for the meantime, I´m comfortable and content in Colombia.
