Journey America Part 2
About Journey America Part 2
On July 8, 2012, Filipe Masetti Leite, embarked upon one of the most daring journeys of the 21st Century. The second-generation completed a lifelong dream passed down from his father and inspired by Aime Tschiffelly by riding two horses through 12 countries in North, Central and South America – starting in Calgary and ending at his home in Sao Paulo two years later.
After completing the nearly 10,000 mile journey and spending several months at home, the newly appointed long-rider heard the road calling and decided to start planning his next Journey. This time he would set out from his home in Sao Paulo with a final destination of Tierra Del Fuego, Patagonia – the end of the world! Having promised his trusty old mounts an early retirement after successfully conquering their first long-ride, Filipe set out to find two new horses capable of handling the rigorous Journey that lay ahead. Follow along with Filipe on his newest adventure as he sets off to ride across the entirety of South America!
