The District of Columbia - The Federal State Washington DC is exactly as you'd expect it to be - large buildings, wide streets and a lot to see! We weren't talking on the day we arrived (don't ask!), so walked up to Capitol Hill and along the Mall ... Read more >

Pennsylvania - The Plantation State Our first stop in Pennsylvania was Pittsburgh, a very industrial, grimy city - and to be honest we didn't really do much there except wander around in the freezing cold! We stayed outside the city so did get a bit ... Read more >

Ohio - The Buckeye State Ohio was somewhat of a let down in a few ways to be honest. Firstly, I was looking forward to taking some nice snaps of Lake Erie, which was not at all accessable, and just basically a lake! Secondly, we drove out of our way ... Read more >

Wyoming - Equality State and South Dakota - The Mount Rushmore State (original!) So, on our last day in Estes Park we got up early to go into the Rocky Mountains NP to find most of the roads closed due to snow - just our luck! We did, however, spot ... Read more >

California - The Golden State Our hostel in LA was smack bang in the middle of Hollywood, but not up to much unfortunately (bring back Hwy 808). As we only had a day we took a magical bus ride (Danielle is actually obsessed, this was the second time ... Read more >

Dry, dusty and Cold....and that was just the Bolivian wine!

BOLIVIA | Wednesday, 12 Sep 2007 | Views [1018]

Well....after 27hrs through the US, gbp 200 later and a hell of a lot of hassle and tears (by me), we finally arrived in La Paz, Bolivia. The highest airport in the world, the town´s altitude is not to be sniffed at, we were literally falling over and ... Read more >

We were both quite excited when we touched down in Hong Kong International Airport, as we both had very high expectations of the place. The journey into central HK was very modern, with high speed trains and a good metro system, but as we exited the metro, ... Read more >

We have just arrived in Batam, a small Indonesian island off the coast of Singapore... First impressions of Indonesia (though I think they will change when we move on)...aren't great! Most of the people seem friendly, but have a habit of staring constantly ... Read more >
