Well I didn´t find Paddington, but ... Phil and I made it to Bolivia and the falling down grandeur of La Paz.  On the way into La Paz we stopped at the ruins of Tiahuanaca which were amazing.  This civilisation pre-dated the Incas by a long way - they ... Read more >

I love the night life ... I´m leaving Cusco for good soon and I will be really sad to see it disappear through the back window of the bus.  Spending a few days here on my own has given me a chance to meet some amazing travellers and to have a really ... Read more >

In deepest, darkest Peru ... We arrived in the Amazon basin on Monday afternoon after travelling by bus, plane, boat and foot for around 7 hours!  The humidity at 90% slapped us in the face and you almost felt as if you were moving through a thick haze.... Read more >

And we're off ... Thought we'd set up this journal so you could all keep track of us and see some photos of us as scruffy backpackers.  We've been waiting for this trip for months and it's almost unbelievable that we're actually leaving this week.  ... Read more >
