Trip of a lifetime


COLOMBIA | Sunday, 1 Feb 2015 | Views [354]

Well, this wasnt even on the original itinerary, not that has stopped us before.  Everyone we meet says we have to go Columbia, its so beautiful and has changed so much so we decided to work it into the schedule.  We flew through Bogota, just ... Read more >


ECUADOR | Sunday, 1 Feb 2015 | Views [392]

This will be a short one.  Unfortunately the budget isnt going to allow us to go to the Galapagos.  I just had to turn my head and not think about just how close I am.  I think it would be a great trip for Kelly and I to do together, start ... Read more >

Peru Hop

PERU | Sunday, 1 Feb 2015 | Views [713]

So we took Peru Hop from Cusco to Lima and we didnt get off to a great start.  The first bus was pretty crappy, bad smell from the bathroom and the seats reclined about 10 degrees if that.  Fortunately there werent many of us so we were each ... Read more >

New Years in Cusco

URUGUAY | Monday, 5 Jan 2015 | Views [404]

We arrived to our hostel in the dark and just rolled into bed.  We awoke to discover that not only is there no indoor communal space but all the rooms open onto an outside courtyard.  Fine in the summer, which it was last time we were in Cusco, ... Read more >

Cochabamba con´t

BOLIVIA | Monday, 29 Dec 2014 | Views [402]

Well our month in Cochabamba is coming to an end.  We didn´t see all the sights we would have liked to, we never made it to Torotoro for instance, but it´s been a great month just the same.  We´ve met so many people and gained ... Read more >


BOLIVIA | Friday, 5 Dec 2014 | Views [346]

We arrived at our workaway, MiskiWasi hostel, hoping for a shower, food and then sleep.  We got 2 out of 3.  The current workawayer had decided to leave early and he was on his way that day.  Next thing we know we're being given a crash ... Read more >

Uyuni Salt Flats

BOLIVIA | Friday, 5 Dec 2014 | Views [406]

San Pedro on the Chile, Bolivia border.  In the middle of the desert there is this quaint little adobe town.  Very quaint.  Tons of tourists of course as that is all that's here, the tours to the salt flats as well as a few other day outings.... Read more >


CHILE | Saturday, 15 Nov 2014 | Views [533]

  26 hours after leaving Santiago we arrive in Taltal.  The evening bus driver was going way over the speed limit and driving rather erratically so I didn't get a lot of sleep.  We arrived in Antofagasta at about 5am, an hour and a ... Read more >


CHILE | Saturday, 15 Nov 2014 | Views [427]

Another bus trip but this one by day.  About 7 hours, and some scenery along the way.  Its funny but most people weve met so far that have come through Chile first have told us Santiago is worth spending much time in.  Not much to see ... Read more >


ARGENTINA | Saturday, 15 Nov 2014 | Views [339]

   We arrived back in rainy Buenos Aires, it has been raining for a week now, and spent the night at the same hostel.  Monday was spent at the bus station booking a bus to Mendoza for that night and then braving Florida street once ... Read more >


ARGENTINA | Saturday, 15 Nov 2014 | Views [432]

  We landed in El Calafate Argentina in the morning and got a bus to our hostel. Its huge, probably 100 rooms. I've never seen a hostel so big. This is a big tourist place now so there are lots of accommodations.  We decided to book some ... Read more >

Our second week in La Paloma was pretty uneventful. Josh spent most of it in bed so I was on my own. Walked the beach, did some cleaning and a lot of reading. We painted the kithcen the last couple days we were there and then hopped on a bus to Montevideo.... Read more >

CUBA | Saturday, 11 Oct 2014 | Views [403]

Quite the adventure. The city is literally crumbling, so sad to see although they are slowly restoring buildings so one day it may be better but there is a very long way to go. We stayed in a Casa which was actually quite nice. We had the whole apartment ... Read more >
