El Caminito

Friday, 22 Dec 2017 | Views [581]

Rich in colour and tango, El Caminito is an interesting area of BA. Having read and being warned about the dangers of pickpocketing in BA's most colourful area, I left my cherished pounamu necklace at Fernando's flat and brought along just a little bit ... Read more >


Thursday, 21 Dec 2017 | Views [561]

Billed as the "Paris of the Americas" I had to get out there today and see what all the hype is about. After the snowstorms of Ushuaia, being bundled up in a parka in Antarctica, the hammering rain of the Falklands, and the thrashing winds of Patagonia, ... Read more >

La Capital via Neuquen

Monday, 18 Dec 2017 | Views [152]

Setting out from Bariloche yesterday I still had a long journey ahead of me. I was still closer to El Calafate than to Buenos Aires despite the two-night hitchhiking journey. Cheers to Leo for hosting me for a couple of nights in a place with a fabulous ... Read more >

Bariloche Landscapes

Sunday, 17 Dec 2017 | Views [306]

After dealing with several windy and cloudy days in Patagonia, I’ve finally come upon a cloudless day in Argentina. The light was right and it was the perfect day to pack some maté, allow my CS host, Leo to gather up some friends, and go ... Read more >

El Calafate to Bariloche

Saturday, 16 Dec 2017 | Views [679]

In the past three days I’ve hitchhiked more than 1,500 km and I feel like, in a way, I started out in Mackenzie Country (NZ) with a view of two lakes that look very similar to Lake Tekapo and Lake Pukaki, then I passed through Outback New South ... Read more >

Glaciers & Travel Rigours

Tuesday, 12 Dec 2017 | Views [667]

I’ve seen many glaciers, yet I’d be in awe after today. Ever since I’ve returned from Antarctica, I’ve been dealing with an unprecedented bout of depression and I can’t figure out why. I’m this down after accomplishing ... Read more >

From the End of the World North

Friday, 8 Dec 2017 | Views [553]

In these past few days, a terrible bout of depression has overtaken me. I think it’s due to a variety of things: having put the entire Antarctica trip on my credit card, being stuck in an expensive place with no easy way out, loving someone here ... Read more >

The Ship Sets Sail

Saturday, 25 Nov 2017 | Views [540] | Comments [1]

Today is the big day! I’m officially bound for Antarctica. Arriving aboard the MV Sea Spirit, we were greeted with the likes of pastries and crème puffs by absolutely professional staff. I could tell this is going to be a great journey from ... Read more >

All Systems Go! Antarctica Awaits!

Friday, 24 Nov 2017 | Views [162]

Only a few days ago I was told that Poseidon Expeditions was reluctant to allow me to join the expedition to Antarctica. I felt angry, hurt, betrayed, and discriminated against. Gabi told me to just take my mind off of the matter, which I did my best, ... Read more >

My Dream being Stolen?

Monday, 20 Nov 2017 | Views [804] | Comments [1]

Antarctica is so close! I’ve always had a great dream, and that’s to reach all seven continents unassisted, either with money or with personal assistance, and be (perhaps) the first person on the autism spectrum to travel unassisted to the ... Read more >

Fin del Mundo

Wednesday, 15 Nov 2017 | Views [395] | Comments [1]

Ushuaia is often billed as being at the end of the world, although the nearest I've actually felt to the end of the world is probably either West Falkland or the coast of Somaliland. Early this morning, I arrived bleary-eyed in Ushuaia, billed as ... Read more >
