Well, where do we even begin to describe the truly awesome experience that has been Machu Picchu and the Salkantay trek?! Our original plan was to try the Lares trek, as we had heard good things about it. However, a week before we arrived in Cusco we ... Read more >

Four cities in 7 days

We arrived in Cochabamba nice and 'fresh' after our long nightbus from Santa Cruz and settled into our hostel room. An important point to note before we move any further is that much of South America seems to see 24 hour hot water as a selling point ... Read more >

Sat in a chilly hostel room in La Paz (it is at 3'500m after all), 4 days and 2 cities away from our time in the Aldea and it already seems so long ago!! Our first day at the charity started in true Bolivian fashion, late! We said our goodbyes to Simon ... Read more >

It's been a while, but here are our last few days before arriving in Santa Cruz to start work with Alalay. We arrived in Potosi after a six hour bus ride along some pretty interesting roads - luckily for us they were paved (always a novelty in Bolivia) ... Read more >

Wow! This could be a long one... So, having arrived in San Pedro de Atacama and made some pretty rapid decisions (for once), we found ourselves on a three day tour to the Bolivian salt flats of Uyuni. The tour was something we always intended to do, ... Read more >

Blazing sunshine welcomed us on arrival first thing in the morning at Valparaiso, quite a change from what we had left behind in Pucon! First job, book ourselves a bus to San Pedro de Atacama for a few days time, always seems slightly strange that ... Read more >

Welcome back to The World in a Nutshell! We left Barriloche mostly as planned - if we had planned to start nearly two hours late thanks to bus delays - and arrived in Valdivia, Chile, with little in the way of drama. The bus ride provided us with some ... Read more >
