It seems a lifetime since I left South America and since the adventures that took me from La Paz , through Argentina , Chile and Brazil , to Toronto . But rather than stuff you full with it all at once, I’ll recount ... Read more >

Isla del Sol... a slice of paradise

BOLIVIA | Wednesday, 11 Nov 2009 | Views [749] | Comments [1]

Happy Birthday to me! Okay, so it was last week but in my family these things often last more than a week anyway. It was Todos los Santos (All Saints and All Souls Day) so a long weekend and of course Halloween on the Saturday. I joined the fervour ... Read more >

loving La Paz

La Paz … wow! Coming around the corner from El Alto to get the first view above this huge city is breathtaking. Not a pretty city, although they are trying, but if ever the word ‘sprawling’ was appropriate, this is it. It’s beautiful though in ... Read more >

It´s only been three weeks since my last babble but since then... I have been involved with a new volunteer project, watched another Cienciano game, drank more home-made Pisco Sours, danced my ass off more than once to cheesy music, saw a sunrise, ate ... Read more >

jungle fever

After my Machu Picchu adventure I was looking forward to some down time in the jungle…So off I went at 5.30am on Monday August 31 to Manu. Not exactly deep Amazon, more like the Daintree in Northern Queensland, but tropical nonetheless. The seven ... Read more >

trekking tales

PERU | Sunday, 6 Sep 2009 | Views [818] | Comments [3]

After a seemingly epic five day trek from Mollepata via Salkantay Pass to Machu Picchu I'm back to tell the tale. Friday night before the trek we decided against the original plan to eat cuy (guinea pig) for dinner. Erin, my house-mate and soon-... Read more >

loco in Cusco

PERU | Saturday, 22 Aug 2009 | Views [891] | Comments [4]

To top off my third weird and wonderful week in Cusco, Peru, I had a perfect ¨This is seriously surreal¨ experience. I was feeling a little odd this morning, which I´m finding is becoming my normal state of being, amongst the gamut of other emotions ... Read more >

What a psychotic 10 days it has been. There has been laughter, tears, disappointment, shock, wonder, fascination, brain squeeze due to the altitude and ensuing numbness from the sulphur medication, hunger, overeating, thirst, sunburn (then peeling), ... Read more >

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 2 Aug 2009 | Views [668]

What an interesting place Buenos Aires is, not in an entirely positive way but not negative either. I´m not too sure whether my experience is due to me being on my own, and female, or whether I was focussed on getting to Cusco, or because the people ... Read more >
