Turija

BOLIVIA | Saturday, 5 Dec 2009 | Views [301]

Tarija   Tarija is the wine region of Boliva.  I arrived yesterday at 5am, woke up a hostel but couldn´t really sleep much.  I dedicated the day to catching up in my diary at a restaurant opposite the main plaza.  I likeTarija, there seems to ... Read more >


Tupiza

BOLIVIA | Wednesday, 2 Dec 2009 | Views [403]

Tupiza I had met two girls in Potosi who also wanted to do the two day horse trek some friends had recommended to me.  They had left for Tupiza the night before and I arranged to meet them the next day.  With my bus arriving late, I had now missed ... Read more >


Potosi

BOLIVIA | Monday, 30 Nov 2009 | Views [239]

Potosi W e arrived and headed for dinner, hoping to find something that was open at 11:30pm.  We walked around and the only places open were the funeral parlours and one Chinese restaurant that only sold rotisserie chicken.  So, another meal of ... Read more >


Sucre

BOLIVIA | Wednesday, 25 Nov 2009 | Views [388]

Sucre   I left Cochabamba and after a 10 hour bus ride arrived in Sucre.  It was easy to see straight away why this is where the government sits.  It is a beautiful town, a little more modern and still looks quite colonial.    The bus ... Read more >


Cochabamba

BOLIVIA | Saturday, 21 Nov 2009 | Views [227]

We caught the bus to Cochabamba arriving at 2am in the morning.  After some much needed sleep, we headed out to explore the town.  We  started at the large statue of Jesus at the top of the hill.  Taking a cable car to the top, we walked to the top of ... Read more >


La Paz

BOLIVIA | Sunday, 15 Nov 2009 | Views [227]

It was quick through Bolivia and we went to find a collectivo to La Paz.  Easily done and an hour and a half later, we were in La Paz, dropped off near the black market.  This was nowhere near we wanted to be so it was another 20 minute walk towards the ... Read more >


Copacabana

BOLIVIA | Friday, 13 Nov 2009 | Views [222]

So I finally left Peru from Puno and crossed over the Bolivian border.  It was an easy crossing, though, carrying our backpacks up hill to the Bolivian border at an altitude of 4000m had everyone huffing and puffing. I met a Brit and French girl on the ... Read more >

Huaraz

PERU | Thursday, 29 Oct 2009 | Views [555] | Comments [1]

I am very behind with my blog, for many reasons.  We have been in some remote places where electricity and internet have not been forthcoming.  It took my two days to catch up on my diary, so I am sure that the blog will take longer but I will perservere.... Read more >


Trujillo

PERU | Wednesday, 28 Oct 2009 | Views [506]

 had enjoyed Mancora but it was time to move on.  Our next stop was a town called Trujillo and involved another overnight bus.  I slept pretty much all of the way, waking up just as we arrived.   It was about 6am and we were leaving for Huaraz that night ... Read more >


Mancora

PERU | Sunday, 25 Oct 2009 | Views [669]

I was sad to leave Ecuador, I had far preferred it to Peru to date.  The scenery was something else, the country just seems a little more advanced and the people happier.  We had heard horror stories about the border crossing from Ecuador into Peru and ... Read more >

Texas

USA | Friday, 11 Sep 2009 | Views [456]

We felw into Texas and again, the airports are huge.  We had to catch a shuttle to the car rental building.  It is surreal with all the highways in the States, at one point in the airport area, we went under a bridge as a plane was crossing it.  We picked ... Read more >

Music Tour - United States

USA | Wednesday, 19 Aug 2009 | Views [321] | Comments [3]

Music tour I arrived in Nashville after a 12 hour journey from London.   Minus my sleeping bag, which had gotten lost in transit, I believe in London.   I mention this now as it will be significant later on.   The Americans do love their air ... Read more >


Sydney

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 3 Jan 2008 | Views [254]

I left Phuket very early in the morning and had a few hours to wander around the airport in Bangkok. I am going to admit that I was fairly impressed with the airport. It was very clean and there were plenty of shops. I had my last Green curry at the ... Read more >


Chang Mai

THAILAND | Friday, 21 Dec 2007 | Views [471]

The train to Chang Mai was the most interesting I have been on.  There were no sleeping compartments and all the beds are along the sides of the compartments so in fact you are sharing a compartment with everyone.  You have your own curtain to close ... Read more >

Bangkok

THAILAND | Wednesday, 19 Dec 2007 | Views [363]

Again.... from Nick.   "The border between Cambodia and Thailand was a long steady stream of westerners, and took hours.  As we waited in line, I watched a truck load of polystyrene enter Cambodia the other way, and I mused at the endless supplies ... Read more >
