Bariloche

ARGENTINA | Friday, 7 Sep 2007 | Views [291]

From Las Lenas we headed to the `premier`ski town in South America, Bariloche. Bariloche is very similar to Queenstown, except more tourists and smaller. There were so many chocolate shops there I am suprised anyone could fit into their ski pants let ... Read more >

Mendoza

ARGENTINA | Friday, 7 Sep 2007 | Views [331]

From B.A. we headed to Mendoza by overnight bus (which froze on the inside of the windows).  Mendoza is the capital of the wine making distract in Argentina so we thought it was only right to do a wine tour of the area.  The tastings at the vineyards ... Read more >

Iguazu Falls

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 26 Aug 2007 | Views [345]

Iguazu falls were awesome!  No description would do them justice.  The volume of water thundering down per second is just amazing.  Even standing around 150metre from the face of the falls you were getting wet from their spray.  Unfortunately it was also ... Read more >

Well despite violent protesting, the worst buses in the world and altitude sickness, we managed to get into Cuzco and have a couple of days playing in the city before starting our 4 day Inca trail.  The city itself is pretty weird.  Half the city was ... Read more >

Puno

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 15 Jul 2007 | Views [399] | Comments [2]

Well the late night bus to Puno was horrible.  We had gone from approx 2300m in Arequipa to 3900m.  Our bus driver was a complete nut case who overtook everything in sight then slammed on the breaks nearly forcing you out of your seat to take the hairpin ... Read more >

Pisco

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 7 Jul 2007 | Views [357]

Well I spent my 25th birthday on a 4 hour bus from Lima to Pisco.  The bus stank, but was a real eye opener.  The pollution was disgusting and limited you to only being able to see about 150metres in front of you. The only thing the pollution didn´t ... Read more >

Well well, after about 2 million hours of flying we finally made it to Lima, via Sydney, Auckland and Santiago.  As some of you may know sitting still is not one of my strengths so I found the flights  pretty uncomfortable.  Anyway we finally arrived ... Read more >
