Coffee, old school dackings and the elusive Pablo Escobar...

COLOMBIA | Thursday, 29 Jul 2010 | Views [882]

We hopped on board bus number 45,000 from Bogota to head to a little town called Maripita which is just three hours shy of Manizallis in the heart of the coffee region. The landscape is absolutely stunning. Southern Colombia is lush and green, the ... Read more >

Buses, Baños and bodgy bloody calculators

ECUADOR | Monday, 26 Jul 2010 | Views [879]

We left Mancora on a beautiful sunny afternoon (boo) and hopped a stifling sweaty bus to the Ecuadorean border; destination: Baños. The bus we subsequently nicknamed 'the disco bus' (neon strip lighting and groovy 80's psychadelic designs) we ... Read more >

Beach, sun and my tuk tuk ambulance

PERU | Tuesday, 13 Jul 2010 | Views [624]

To follow on from beloved Cusco, we bused from Cusco to Lima (19 hrs) where we stayed in a lovely new hostel run by a couple of young French guys. Whilst they were lovely and very helpful, when I say a lovely hostel I largely mean good beds. Real ... Read more >

A trail to Machu Picchu

PERU | Wednesday, 7 Jul 2010 | Views [630]

So where was I? Ah yes, on the way to Cusco. Ah Cusco; beloved Cusco. I’m officially a little in love with Cusco. We arrived after another fairly shite bus ride late at night to find the hotel we'd booked and paid for no longer had room. After a small argument ... Read more >

Hola! To follow on from the last post, we arrived back into Rurrenabaque after the pampas tour and had a brief stay before departing on a 2 day Jungle tour the following morning. Sadly Teresa and Dave had to head back to La Paz but Irene continued ... Read more >

Bolivia Part 2: Altitude and Rurrenabaque

BOLIVIA | Tuesday, 22 Jun 2010 | Views [2820] | Comments [1]

Hola Chicos! To follow on from last post we headed on what was supposed to be a 7 hr bus from Uyuni to Potosi, the highest city in the world. About 25 minutes out of Uyuni on a steep hill the bus ground to a halt. I looked out the window and saw ... Read more >

Bolivia part 1: the wild wild west

BOLIVIA | Friday, 4 Jun 2010 | Views [756] | Comments [2]

To say that Bolivia is quite different from Argentina is the understatement of the century. Argentina is colonial and quite modern in its larger cities. Bolivia is like stepping into a scene out of an old American Western. It's dry, desolate, unforgiving ... Read more >

Wine and Bikes in Mendoza

ARGENTINA | Monday, 31 May 2010 | Views [701] | Comments [1]

I haven´t updated for a while as we´ve been fairly well on the move and internet in Bolivia can be painfully slow! To back track a little, we had a fantastic time in Mendoza, which is a cool city in the Argentinean wine district. We stayed in an apartment ... Read more >

The Mighty Villaricca!

CHILE | Tuesday, 18 May 2010 | Views [793] | Comments [1]

Following on from the last post, we awoke on Sunday to a glorious day so thunderbirds were go for the Volcano climb. We were relatively unsure as to what to expect; although we knew we needed some fairly technical gear so it wasn´t going to be a walk ... Read more >

Bariloche and Pucon

CHILE | Saturday, 15 May 2010 | Views [3105] | Comments [1]

Hola amigos, I am writing from Pucon in Chile, a beautiful town at the base of the active volcano Villarrica. We arrived here yesterday from Bariloche on an extremely bloody uncomfortable 12 hr no frills bus ride. It probably didn´t help matters that ... Read more >

Hola from El Calafate!

ARGENTINA | Saturday, 8 May 2010 | Views [617]

I am bloody annoyed after spending an hour composing a beautiful entry full of witty anecdotes and hilarious recounts of events. The bastard didn´t save and enthusiasm has seriously waned, so it´ll be meat and potatoes today I´m sorry. Ushuaia was ... Read more >

Iguazu,. Rancho relaxo and Ushuaia!

ARGENTINA | Monday, 3 May 2010 | Views [580]

We've just arrived in Ushuaia after a few days in sunny Iguazu at a hostel we dubbed 'rancho relaxo'. Great ex casino-come hostel just outside Iguazú . Beautiful pool, cheap cocktails (two for $3 during happy hours), sunshine and lounge chairs.... Read more >

Buenos Aires to Iguazu

ARGENTINA | Thursday, 29 Apr 2010 | Views [557]

Well to follow on from last post La Carberra was AMAZING! The best meal I have ever had a restaurant. The steaks are absolutely enormous, tender and unbelievably tasty. 400g eye fillet was $13 Aus and came with about 10 different ... Read more >

Keeping up with Buenos Aires

ARGENTINA | Saturday, 24 Apr 2010 | Views [548]

It's been a fairly intense week. The city moves at a very fast pace and we've all been flagging trying to keep up! Afternoon naps have become standard practice (a habit we're all keen to break). Hoping it has more to do with jet lag, time adjustments ... Read more >
