Getting to know the new country – Bogota, Villa de Leyva, San Gil

COLOMBIA | Sunday, 26 Aug 2012 | Views [2096]

A quick flight to Bogota from Leticia (there is no other route) meant getting a slight temperature shock on arrival. I went from close to 40 degrees to 15… It also meant getting further away from Brazil and settling into travel in a new country.... Read more >

The epic boat journey - Manuas to Tabatinga

BRAZIL | Tuesday, 7 Aug 2012 | Views [2481] | Comments [3]

I have been struggling to think of a way to describe this boat journey. It's 7 days on a tiny vessel with about 100 other people, all sleeping in a very close proximity to your hammock. All your stuff is laid out on the floor and you basically have ... Read more >

BRAZIL | Wednesday, 1 Aug 2012 | Views [1462]

  Getting to Jericoacoara seemed like a perfect plan: bus from Pipa to Natal, overnight bus from Natal to Fortaleza, another bus from Fortaleza to Jeri in the morning. It did work out but ended up being a painful 24 hour journey and the night ... Read more >

The land of lakes and chocolate (Bariloche)

ARGENTINA | Wednesday, 2 May 2012 | Views [758]

After the excitement of seeing the penguins I boarded another overnight bus to Bariloche . Crossing through Patagonia is a rather long process and the landscape does not help. For hours on end all you see is flat land. The only surprise was waking up ... Read more >

New country, new challenge - Puerto Iguazu, Misiones and Rosario

ARGENTINA | Tuesday, 10 Apr 2012 | Views [859]

And so I crossed over to Argentina. For all those who do plan to cross in Foz , you need to specifically ask the bus driver to stop at the Brazilian border. Otherwise they will only take you through Argentinian immigration and you don't get your ... Read more >

Am finally on the road and although its only been a week, it's been pretty hectic...and amazing. Journey to Salvador was long, the overnight stay at the Rio airport was not at all what I dreamed of but I had no choice but to settle into a night of ... Read more >
