La Quiaca, Mugging, Journey to Uyuni

BOLIVIA | Friday, 23 Jan 2009 | Views [1166] | Comments [1]

We crossed over together to Bolivia to buy bus tickets and then the lads headed straight off to La Paz and I stayed for the night in La Quiaca on the Argentine side. I have never seen such a badly managed frontier. There were crowds of people swarming ... Read more >

Purmamarca, Tilcara, Humahueca

ARGENTINA | Saturday, 17 Jan 2009 | Views [544]

Diego, D'arte, Charlie, Mirri and myself spent a day in Purmamarca, climbing the small mountains for a better view of the place. There was a steep, narrow slope up to the top of one of them and I called Charlie chicken because he wouldn't do it. Like ... Read more >

Salta - Purmamarca

ARGENTINA | Friday, 16 Jan 2009 | Views [849]

Spent a few days in Salta but didn't really do much there apart from suffer from severe diarrhoea which I reckon was from brushing my teeth using the tap water as I hadn't eaten anything that would have given me it. There is a cable car that goes up ... Read more >

After I had spent a few hours asleep I went walkabout around the centre of Mendoza. There is a central square and four smaller ones off it each with different themes. I was roasting here as it was very humid and I'm not used to the heat anymore. Bought ... Read more >

Journey from Hell (Part II)

ARGENTINA | Saturday, 10 Jan 2009 | Views [570]

Arrived in Ushuaia airport with just over an hour and a half to go before the flight...they say you only need an hour.  The queue was really long for check-in and they started to move people on my flight to a different line to check us in faster. It ... Read more >

Tierra del Fuego

ARGENTINA | Friday, 9 Jan 2009 | Views [522]

When I returned to Ushuaia I went back to the party hostel that I had booked. Had chosen this one because I was going to be here for New Years and I wanted people to celebrate with. Good idea and simultaneously a bad idea! Met with Judith, Dan and Maryanne ... Read more >

Antarctica - Drake Passage 28-30th December

ANTARCTICA | Sunday, 28 Dec 2008 | Views [610] | Comments [1]

Our astonishing run of good luck held as we re-crossed a relatively calm Drake Passage. It always seemed to become roughest at mealtimes. We became experts at judging the swell so that we could catch our glasses. I don’t know how the waitress ... Read more >

Antarctica - Last landing - Port Lockroy

ANTARCTICA | Saturday, 27 Dec 2008 | Views [835]

We were awoken, again very early, by Chris wishing us `Good Morning´.   His voice is far more effective than any alarm clock I have ever used.   We were to visit Wiencke Island and Port Lockroy this morning.   The custodian of Port Lockroy came ... Read more >

Antarctica - St. Stephen's Day

ANTARCTICA | Friday, 26 Dec 2008 | Views [800] | Comments [1]

The morning began with the usual cheerful, early morning wake-up call.   Snow had fallen throughout the night but by the time we arose blue, cloudless skies and calm waters combined to provide us with an unbelievably stunning inaugural view of Neko ... Read more >

Antarctica - Christmas Day

ANTARCTICA | Thursday, 25 Dec 2008 | Views [1616]

The trip was planned in such a way that we reached our southernmost latitude (65°10’S, 64°07’W) on Christmas Day.   After breakfast most passengers went on deck to watch as we passed through the narrow Lemaire Channel.   We set off in Zodiacs to ... Read more >

On Christmas Eve I awoke to find that we had arrived in Foyn Harbour on Enterprise Island.   It was a complete contrast to yesterday.   The sun was out, reflecting off the glistening snow-covered mountains and glaciers and the icebergs and bergy ... Read more >

Antarctica - Deception Island

ANTARCTICA | Tuesday, 23 Dec 2008 | Views [1525]

Due to bad weather conditions we had to forgo our early morning (05:30) landing at Baily Head on Deception Island .   This weather is typical of the location but it doesn’t deter the large number (>100,000) of Chinstrap penguins whose Rookery ... Read more >

Having waited for years since first realising that it is possible and months since booking, finally I was visiting Antarctica ! The night before embarking I met two Canadians who had just returned and they spent the evening regaling me with ... Read more >
