16mai18:3020:00Travel talk: Ehh, uhhuduur in Latin America – the charm and pain of crossing the Andes

Event Details

As a special event of the Iberofest program in Hispaania Maja, we have Hispaania Maja’s students Kristjan Prii, Liivo Niglas and Tanel Rütman sharing their travel experiences. In 2002, six inspiring travelers started with an unusual idea of ​​cycling from Ulaanbaatar to Nepal.

So far, they have already made five trips and they plan to cycle around the globe. Their last trip to South America began three years ago on the Atlantic coast in the small Uruguayan resort town of Punta del Este. Diagonally, across the continent and six countries – Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia and Peru – and across the Andes, they reached Lima on the Pacific coast. This summer they will continue as usual from where they left off, with the aim of getting from Peru to Costa Rica.

We will be talking about their last trip which was full of challenges but also bright emotions. We will also discuss whether and how it is possible to travel in Latin America without speaking Spanish and what the preparations are for the upcoming trip. Stories of friendship, being on the road, and overcoming yourself.


The event is free, but pre-registration on Hispaania Maja website is required.

The event will be held in Estonian. Before and after the event you can check the wide selection of books and Spanish flavors in Hispaania Maja shop. You can enjoy Spanish wine and different refreshing drinks during the event. Free parking in the backyard.
