Sorry for the lack of updates (again)!
I already arrived in Santiago de Chile about three weeks ago now, after an 13 hour flight!
I arrived 1 hour earlier than I left! (13h flight, but -14h time difference!)
two days later I could get my bike at the cargo terminal. no problems at all, it was done in half a day.
taking the bike out of the warehouse in Santiago and through the customs was easy and about $200 USD.
In Australia it took me almost two weeks to get my bike legally onto the road!
I had a very good experience with Ivan from bikesabroad.com.au, who did the shipping (or rather flying). The bike was perfectly crated up by Procycles in Hornsby near Sydney, altough it came in a BMW box 🙂
right now I’m in Viña del Mar and taking some Spanish lessons!
Nach 13 Stunden Flug bin ich in Santiago de Chile angekommen, eine Stunde früher, als ich abgeflogen bin (13h Flug, -14h Zeitdifferenz). Zwei Tage später konnte ich meinen Töff vom Cargo Terminal abholen gehen. Hat nur einen halben Tag gedauert und ca $200 usd gekostet. Im Gegensatz zu Australien, wo es fast zwei Wochen und $1000 aud kostete…
