I’m traveling the Panamerican Highway by bicycle with my boyfriend Sven and our dog Tulku. During the journey Tulku became blind and survived 3 surgeries in order to walk again.

We started the trip in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina and will finish it in Alaska, USA. One morning in Peru we woke up in the middle of the desert and found our dog blind and unable to walk. It took 5 months, 3 different countries and 3 surgeries to fix her legs. She can walk again now, but she is still blind. We currently are in Colombia and already cycled 10 000km. We will ride 16 000km more.
