Yuni, Bolivia, 31 August - 2 September

BOLIVIA | Thursday, 6 Sep 2007 | Views [1083]

We arrived to Yuni at around 0130 in the morning and the temperature was almost below zero so we decided to get ourselves a good hotel with heating, sadly there were only two of those in town and the cheaper one was full so we ended up paying 60USD for ... Read more >

Potosi, Bolivia, 28 August - 29 August

BOLIVIA | Wednesday, 5 Sep 2007 | Views [451]

Sorry for having such a long break from writing, after potosi we went to Yuni and the net there was frustratingly slow so I didn´t feel like it. Potosi was a nice colonial style town, the highest city of it´s size, 4070m above the sea level. It is famous ... Read more >

La Paz, Bolivia 22 August -

BOLIVIA | Saturday, 25 Aug 2007 | Views [410]

So we arrived to La Paz a day early, and what a city it is, it´s so different to everything I´ve seen on this trip so far. I guess some might find it a bit intimidating, especially the amount of people and traffic, but now that I´ve gotten used to it ... Read more >

Copacabana, Bolivia

BOLIVIA | Wednesday, 22 Aug 2007 | Views [653]

We arrived to Copacabana yesterday night after just 10 hours of traveling by buss and a minibuss, the views of lake Titicaca on the way over here were quite amazing, as it had snowy mountain tops as a back drop. Our luck continued to hold and we even ... Read more >

Aguas Calientes / Machu Picchu - 16 August to 17 August

PERU | Friday, 17 Aug 2007 | Views [1107]

The least important and most disappointing news to many. We didn´t get killed by the earthquake, actually I didn´t even feel it. It supposedly hit the area we were staying at around 4 richter scale, so nothing near the 7 at the epicenter. Aguas Calientes ... Read more >

Cuzco, Peru 8 August to...

PERU | Friday, 10 Aug 2007 | Views [658]

It´s a nice place, a bit cold during the nights, but what do you expect when you´re at 3300 meters above sea level during the winter. The first 2 days have been nice and sunny. The city is beautifull, full of life and full of sights. Haven´t been able ... Read more >

Arica, Chile - 3 August to 7 August

CHILE | Saturday, 4 Aug 2007 | Views [486]

Having a needle stuck in your... ...well to be politically correct let´s just say rear end at 7AM isn´t the best way to start your stop here, but as we both had a flu that had lasted for a few days we went to the hospital to get ourselves checked ... Read more >

ARGENTINA | Wednesday, 1 Aug 2007 | Views [442]

A Fine or a Bribe is there a difference? As I mentioned in my last post we didn´t get entry stamps going into Paraguay as the buss just drove trough the borders, looks like they care more about people exiting the country near Asuncion... Anyway as we ... Read more >

Paraguay, Asuncion 26 July to 27 July

PARAGUAY | Saturday, 28 Jul 2007 | Views [491]

Welcome to the Wild Wild West That was the feeling I had when we first arrived in Paraguay from Argentina. There weren´t even any border formalities for some reason for other, not that there were any in brazil either, only the argentinian customs seems ... Read more >

I wish they knew... ...that it is possible to set the air conditioning in busses to other positions than ON/OFF, it´s not too fun to do a 18 hour buss journey when you´re either shivering and then 15 minutes later trying to breathe in air that you could ... Read more >

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 22 Jul 2007 | Views [387]

We Finally Got Here And it´s a such a nice town, a bit down trodden, you can see people living on the streets and begging, but it still feels safe. After getting to our hotel which was a bit more expensive than planned as the one we were supposed to ... Read more >

El Capinato Tortilla Strikes - 18 July to 21 July

CHILE | Sunday, 22 Jul 2007 | Views [411]

On Time... NOT! Never fly on Spanish airlines, that´s the lesson we learned. We were supposed to fly at midnight, in the end they sent us to a hotel (well atleast if was a four star one, but still) to sleep for 3 hours before waking up and getting transported ... Read more >

Arrival - 16 July We had decided to stop by Madrid for a few days on our journey to South America, due to flight arrangements etc. And we actually managed to arrive there on time, with no fuss at all. Sadly the hostel we were supposed to go didn´t ... Read more >

We are actually doing it for real! For long going to South America for a longer period has been a dream for me as I feel there isn't much for me to experience at the touristy hells of Asia and now it's coming true, we booked our tickets today! In ... Read more >
