Hopefully I didn´t speak too soon. I´ll be crying lots if I don´t get on a flight tonight. The funny thing about Ecuadorians is they´re SO pround of their country. Almost anybody I meet wants to know if I liked it, how long I spent here, whether I spent ... Read more >

Never believe a travel agent

ECUADOR | Sunday, 22 Jun 2008 | Views [826]

Its been a rather stressful 24 hours. I did massive amounts of shopping yesterday morning, after a bumpy and sleepless night on the bus from Lago Agrio. I sent some stuff back home to the folks, and also had a lovely seafood meal with crab. I get to ... Read more >

Stories from the jungle

ECUADOR | Friday, 20 Jun 2008 | Views [2458] | Comments [1]

It was deliciously good. All of it! Yeah there were bugs everywhere, buzzing around my ears, swimming in my soup, bouncing off my eyeballs, but some of them, when you eat it, tastes like lemon! Sunday night, after leaving the internet cafe where I ... Read more >

Gorgeous gorgeous Galapagos

ECUADOR | Monday, 16 Jun 2008 | Views [832]

The place is soooo pretty. Last time I wrote I had just done some diving and seen Isabela, after that I boarded the Eden yacht (first class, very fancy and comfortable). The food was really good, fruits, juices, meats, seafood, pasta, rice, and all sorts ... Read more >

Galapagos - still awesome!

ECUADOR | Friday, 13 Jun 2008 | Views [808]

Despite the shitty visibility of the water, I'm having lots of fun. Yesterday on Isabela Island, I climbed Volcan Cerra Negra (Black Hill Volcano?), the worlds 2nd largest volcano crater, and the oldest active volcano. Also walked over the crater/lava ... Read more >

Galapagos is pretty Whao

ECUADOR | Tuesday, 10 Jun 2008 | Views [629]

Arrived in town yesterday, went diving at Gordons Rock today, looking for hammerhead sharks. Unfortunately I didn´t see any! Other people in the group did though. Bit disappointed, "close enough" just isn´t close enough. Tomorrow I go to Isabela ... Read more >

Cali´s saucy salsa sangre (blood) and byebye Colombia

COLOMBIA | Friday, 6 Jun 2008 | Views [854]

Happy and a little sad to be leaving Colombia. Was a bit indifferent to the food here, except for the fruits and juices, which were amazing. I´ve been walking around the area I´m staying at, Avenida 9 Calle 22, there are lots and lots of salsa clubs.... Read more >

Medellin - home to the plastically beautiful

COLOMBIA | Sunday, 1 Jun 2008 | Views [1165]

Colombians are really good looking, especially in the big cities. Many of the women I've seen are beautifully done up, perfect hair, attractive (if sometimes gaudy) clothes. The men here are okay too. I'm staying at a hostel in the Poblado area, there ... Read more >

Got distracted at the beach

COLOMBIA | Wednesday, 28 May 2008 | Views [760]

Originally I planned to be there for 1 day. But it wasn´t enough. So next time I went, I planned for 3 days, but at the end, I spent 1 week there. Tayrona National Park is a very pretty place, people are nice, but in the end I was glad to leave. So ... Read more >


COLOMBIA | Wednesday, 21 May 2008 | Views [856]

So far so good. I´m in Santa Marta at the moment, going to Taganga to spend some time chilling out on a Carribean beach. Weather has bee pretty shitty; overcast, periods of rain and thunder, rare patch of blue sky. It´s also humid and very warm, which ... Read more >
