Santiago, Chile and finally back to Australia

CHILE | Tuesday, 29 Jul 2008 | Views [693]

After my amazing flight over the Andes (so beautiful!!) my first experience of Santiago was the ghettos as my airport bus dropped people off at their home....the Chilean guy was most concerned at me travelling by myself and gave me his number in ... Read more >


Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay - Mendoza, Aregentina

URUGUAY | Wednesday, 16 Jul 2008 | Views [1349]

I returned to BA from the Iguazu Falls and early the next day, took a ferry to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay (have to love day trips to another country!). I arrived around 10am and thought that perhaps I had stumbled upon a ghost town…it ... Read more >

Foz de Iguacu/Iguazu

BRAZIL | Monday, 14 Jul 2008 | Views [1412]

I left BA and headed for Foz de Iguacu (advice – if possible don’t travel with Argentina Aerolinas). The Foz de Iguacu or Iguacu Falls are on the border of Argentina and Brazil with the falls on the Argentinean side being spelt with a ‘z’ and ... Read more >

Buenos Aires

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 13 Jul 2008 | Views [472]

So I arrived very early on the 29th of June in Buenos Aires with much anticipation and excitment but a little worried - I had heard so much about this city and expected it to be just amazing and was concerned it would not live up to my expectations..... Read more >

Back to Cusco

PERU | Sunday, 29 Jun 2008 | Views [383] | Comments [1]

Cusco was like a different place when we arrived back - the Inti Raymi (festival of the winter solstice) was over and the town was a lot less crazy.  Enjoyed a long hot shower and some good food before falling into bed exhausted.... I finally did a ... Read more >


Salkantay to Machu Picchu

PERU | Sunday, 29 Jun 2008 | Views [513]

When my alarm went off at 3.30am on the 22nd I really didn't want to get up in the freezing cold to go trekking all day....but I was ready by 4am and by 7am my new family for the next five days and I were in Mollepata for breakfast.  Our 'family' was ... Read more >


Cusco, Cuzco, Qosqo

PERU | Sunday, 22 Jun 2008 | Views [366]

The flight from Lima to Cusco was absolutely stunning - flew over the most beautiful mountain ranges, some with snow capped peaks (no idea what the flight from Quito to Lima was like because I slept!!). I arrived just after lunch and my hostal picked ... Read more >

Back to Quito

ECUADOR | Saturday, 21 Jun 2008 | Views [409]

After one last walk around North Seymour Island, we spent the rest of the day taking buses and planes back to Quito.  Finally got in a bit after 5pm and then had a group dinner.  A few of us stayed out and bar hopped and drank lots (of course I was one ... Read more >

The Galapagos Islands

ECUADOR | Thursday, 19 Jun 2008 | Views [599]

Its hard to know where to start...I spent eight days on a boat (the spondylus) crusing around the Galapagos Islands and it was just amazing!  My trip was actually a combination of 2 other trips and the first one was quite a small group (about 10 of us) ... Read more >
