Getting lost for fun... My travels around the globe.

Puerto Viejo and San Jose

COSTA RICA | Wednesday, 21 Oct 2015 | Views [271]

So it has been almost 2 weeks! I attempted to post a week ago but I got logged out after I spent an hour writing and lost everything! Boo. Everything here is tranquilo. I landed in San Jose after a long day and 2 flights and pretty much crashed. The ... Read more >

Santa Marta & Tayrona National Park

COLOMBIA | Friday, 28 Jun 2013 | Views [305]

So I bid my farewells to Cartagena, the newfound hostel kitty, and some really good people. I got on a bus to Santa Marta with Mercedes, the Porteña (girl from Buenos Aires), and Nestor, a Porteño we met the night before. Pipo, the Chileno, ... Read more >


Cartagena

COLOMBIA | Thursday, 27 Jun 2013 | Views [352]

Where do I begin? Bili and I arrived on a Sunday, we met our newfound Chilean amiga, and they both stayed until the next Sunday when we split. I stayed another week. Oh, glorious Cartagena. My days were spent going to various beaches, soaking ... Read more >


Medellin

COLOMBIA | Tuesday, 18 Jun 2013 | Views [322]

Medellin. A city shadowed by a history of drugs and corruption. A city progressing and overcoming, yet still slightly tainted. A city full of life, an exuberant nightlife, beautiful women, implants and epic street food.    We stayed ... Read more >


Bogota to Salento

COLOMBIA | Sunday, 9 Jun 2013 | Views [2066]

This is the part of my trip where I fall head over heals in love with the world. Perhaps it's this beautiful country with undertones of dark history and an apparent honesty in the people about their country's past with no attempt to sugarcoat it, yet ... Read more >


Lima revisited to Iquitos and the Amazon

PERU | Monday, 27 May 2013 | Views [368]

After my lovely rejuvination period in the desert I got a bus back to Lima and planned to do absolutely nothing but read, sleep and cuddle with the hostel cat but the universe had other plans for me. :) I stayed in the 4-bed girl's dorm for the third ... Read more >


Huacachina

PERU | Sunday, 12 May 2013 | Views [315]

Another pleasant night bus sitting next to a mother and her small fidgetting, noisy child. Oh night buses. I listened to my instincts this time and went to the desert. The desert is where my heart is. I don´t know what it is about deserts but I ... Read more >


Arequipa and the Colca Canyon

PERU | Monday, 6 May 2013 | Views [236]

After a few days of rest in Lima, post-fun with Nate, I got myself on a night bus to Arequipa. It was a pleasant 15 hours of windy roads in the mountains, nausea, a tiny Peruvian man sleeping half on top of me and snoring in my ear, and two shitty meals.... Read more >


Cuzco to Aguas Calientes back to Cuzco to Lima

PERU | Wednesday, 1 May 2013 | Views [753]

6 months of travel, 6 countries. Nate came to travel with me for a week in Peru and celebrated my birthday with me. It was one of the best weeks of my trip - he lifted my spirits when I was getting burnt out, and he brought an air of good vibes with ... Read more >


Farewell to the Galapagos

ECUADOR | Friday, 19 Apr 2013 | Views [255]

During the last two days in Santa Cruz, Jen and I went to a water hole where you can jump from a cliff into the water. Unfortunately, it was packed full of people and I nearly sprained my ankle on the rocks. This resulted in a hot limp for a day and ... Read more >


Galapagos Islands

ECUADOR | Friday, 5 Apr 2013 | Views [296]

So let me first just say, everyday that I wake up here I think to myself, "How f***ing lucky am I?!" It's that amazing. Whatever visions you have of this place, if you've never been...it's a million times more amazing than that. Truth. If you've been, ... Read more >


Cuenca to Baños to Quito

ECUADOR | Friday, 5 Apr 2013 | Views [2404]

So after a shuttle bus from the hostel to the bus station, waiting around, another bus to the airport, getting stopped and forced to buy a ticket on the spot out of Ecuador so I could get on my flight, buying a flight last minute at 5AM, slightly buzzed, ... Read more >


Last thoughts on BA

ARGENTINA | Friday, 5 Apr 2013 | Views [420]

Wow it's been a while. So much has happened since I left Argentina. What a life! So BA now holds a special place in my heart. I had moments in BA where I felt the comforts of home, which hasn't really happened anywhere else. But BA is special to me ... Read more >


More BA!

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 3 Mar 2013 | Views [241]

Ahhhh Buenos Aires. So week 2 of classes down, and I learned some past tense finally! I think I'm actually starting to kind of get the language in my head...just need to be practicing more. I decided not to do a third week though, because I'm a little ... Read more >


Español in BA

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 24 Feb 2013 | Views [332]

So one week down of classes. My brain hurts a little. I have so much respect for anyone who has managed to learn a second language, and I'm just rediculousloy envious of those who have learned 3 or more. All those Europeans who speak 4 or 5 languages ... Read more >


BA to Iguazu to BA

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 17 Feb 2013 | Views [356]

Back in BA, Jen and I stayed at a hostel that had a wonderful staff but no AC or even a fan, aweful beds that squeak every inch you move and boards that stick in your back, and some rather strange characters. One guy in our room was about 65 years old, ... Read more >


Punta del Este to Montevideo to Colonia

URUGUAY | Sunday, 17 Feb 2013 | Views [190]

So my last night in Rosario was spent watching the Superbowl with some fellow Americans as well as pretty much the rest of thye hostel by the end of the game. It was nice and comforting although not nearly as entertaining as watching with my brother.... Read more >


Salta to Rosario

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 3 Feb 2013 | Views [429]

Back in Argentina and it feels so good! So after 36 hours of travel, 2 night buses and a border crossing I arrived back to my favorite spot, Salta. Once again, I met some good people and just spent the days relaxing happily. The first night I went out ... Read more >


Santiago to Viña del Mar & Valparaiso back to Santiago

CHILE | Monday, 28 Jan 2013 | Views [353]

Back to Chile for a week. I flew from chilly La Paz to warm Santiago on a bus plane. We landed two times before finally reaching Santiago and went through customs on the first stop in Chile - Arica. I suppose that´s why you get such a good price.... Read more >
