From 0 to canoe in less than 24 hours.

NETHERLANDS | Monday, 5 Jun 2017 | Views [829]

Zaaandam. Zandaam? The place names are so unfamiliar so are very hard to remember, but Philip has written his address and the canoe is waiting for us. Daydreaming about canoes, eating cakes called canoes, canoes canoes canoes. Would love to have a ... Read more >

Magical Peru: Part 2 of ∞

PERU | Wednesday, 23 Jun 2010 | Views [1028] | Comments [4]

What seems like an age ago now, I wrote we´d just returned from a trek through the Cordillera Blanca in Peru, starting off from Huaraz. Huaraz isn´t a particularly exciting city, but with the mountain ranges on both sides looming, challenging, it´s ... Read more >

Magical Peru: Part 1 of ∞

PERU | Tuesday, 4 May 2010 | Views [11915] | Comments [2]

After a 12 hour rapid speed boat up the Amazon river, skipping along the murky waters as the driver expertly avoided water hazards, such as floating tree barks, lonesome fishermen and suicidal river dolphins, we arrived at our destination, Iquitos.... Read more >

Defying death in Northern Bolivia

BOLIVIA | Saturday, 1 May 2010 | Views [1016]

The trout are farmed, but in cages in the Lake, so I imagine they eat the same nutrients and goodness as the other trout in Lake Titicaca, but have to go to bed earlier. They could have relationships with other fish, but without direct contact, through ... Read more >

A happy ending in Colombia

COLOMBIA | Thursday, 22 Apr 2010 | Views [2782] | Comments [2]

Surprisingly things don´t always go amazingly and exceedingly to plan, which may not make for great reading, so sorry if it´s not riveting, but here´s what happened. We arrived in Cartagena, Colombia after the super good catamaran experience ... Read more >

PANAMA | Wednesday, 17 Mar 2010 | Views [1250] | Comments [1]

Last time I wrote, we were setting off blind (after waking up to the wrong time zone), looking for some luck to get us past the impassable Darian gap in Panama to find our destination Colombia, in need of some luck... Regreso. We arrived ... Read more >

A Costa Rican nutshell.

COSTA RICA | Tuesday, 23 Feb 2010 | Views [861] | Comments [1]

Reluctantly leave Nicaragua, feel sad. Hit infamously slow border crossing between Nicaragua and Costa Rica (because of age old rivalry, feuding, mutual discontent) queue in several seemingly needless passport queues for hours, enter Costa Rica. ... Read more >

Perfect Nicaragua

NICARAGUA | Tuesday, 2 Feb 2010 | Views [1164] | Comments [6]

Previously on the robrob show I´d just escaped rainy rainy Carribean Island Utila in Honduras, just in time it seems as the rain continued for many more days and Sam had to charter a light aircraft to fly off the island, which sounded like super ... Read more >

The final chapter: Argentina, drawn from memory.

ARGENTINA | Thursday, 28 Jan 2010 | Views [1431] | Comments [1]

  And so I’d left Bolivia to find amazing Argentina. Still alone and missing home, I arrived in the city of Salta. Similar to Villazon, Bolivia, I felt like I’d landed on the set of a spaghetti western, a good feeling; if only I ... Read more >

Fiery Guatamala and a Carribbean Christmas!

HONDURAS | Wednesday, 6 Jan 2010 | Views [2245] | Comments [3]

It's been a while and the year is now 2010. Happy New Year and hope everyone is well, NYE was spent literally rocking a second storey pier construction, dancing forever to the minimal techno scene which strangely dominates here on the Island of Utila, ... Read more >

So long Mexico, for now at least.

MEXICO | Friday, 11 Dec 2009 | Views [1040] | Comments [1]

Hola! We've arrived in Guatamala, but that's another story. Our last few weeks in Mexico were similarly amazing! It seems that just lying on a beach isn't as straightforward as it seems. Our first stop was Puerto Escondido which was the closest coastal ... Read more >

Turning into a taco...

MEXICO | Friday, 20 Nov 2009 | Views [914] | Comments [1]

I think I may be turning into a taco, but it`ll be a submissive transition if it happens. Still in Mexico and the food here is still amazing. We are now in Puerto Escondido after a busy week. We watched Lucha Libre at Arena Mexico last ... Read more >

Hola Mexico City!

MEXICO | Saturday, 14 Nov 2009 | Views [938] | Comments [2]

After the slightly crazy and emotional 3 week leaving party, we were finally on flight AF438 to Mexico City, whoop whoop. We arrived around 6:30 local time to a less than smooth passing through immigration, the Mexican Official literally picking holes ... Read more >
