Final Thoughts

Just 4 weeks have passed since we have posted our last blog and during that time we have travelled through 4 countries and 3 continents. After Honduras we made our way back to Belize and stopped there on a beautiful island called Placencia. The diving allegedly was spectacular however so were the prices and for that…

Around Guatemala

I always wanted to go to Belize and from Cozumel it was only a few hours with the bus. Who would not want to see La Isla Bonita and San Pedro, the place Madonna sang about in the 80’s. But this place is for ‘Rich and Beautiful’ and way above our budget and so we…

Made in Cuba

As Cuba is one of the most isolated countries in the world it is very difficult to get an idea of what to expect however we fell in love with the place as soon as we stepped off the plane. The beauty of the island is breathtaking and there is a genuine friendliness from the…

Simply Amazing

Quito is our final city in South America and to be honest not one that we have really enjoyed. The old town is defiantly a highlight with the churches and museums that has maintained a link to its past however most of there areas are loud and busy and not really a place you want…

The Amazon Rainforest

A four day jungle trip to the Amazonas seemed to be a great idea to finish our Ecuador visit. From Quito it took an eleven hours bus drive to the Cuyabeno Natianal Park and a three hour canoe ride to the Guacamayo Eco Lodge. Caymens, anacondas,10 species of monkeys, over 530 species of birds and…

Journey to middle earth

Montanita is a small costal town in the south of Ecuador and was our first stop after crossing the border from Peru. In the 60’s it was a hippie town and over the decades it became a popular destination for surfers from around the world. Its also called ‘Little Amsterdam’ for for its tolerance of…

On the Road

We are back after our Christmas and New Year break and since Machu Picchu we have travelled along the coast up to the north of Peru. Our first stop along the coast was in Pisco which is famous for its national drink, the Pisco Sour. The drink is made of grape brandy, egg white, sirup…

The way to the Lost City of the Incas

We decided to cross over from Bolivia to Peru via the border point on Lake Titicaca which is in the Andes. Its considered to be the largest lake in South America and its also the home to the Uros. The Uros are Incan people who live on 42 floating islands. It is believed that they…

Incredible Bolivia

There are many ways to explore a country so we decided to see the beauty of Bolivia by doing a 3 day Jeep tour from San Pedro de Atacama, Chile to Uyuni, Bolivia. We shared the car with 4 people from Spain, Denmark and Australia. Ronald was our driver, tour guide, mechanic, troubleshooter and cook.…

Adios Chile

Our trip through Chile comes to an end and our last stop is the Atacama desert. After the Sahara, Namib desert, the Kalahari and living in Dubai I was not sure how the oldest desert in the world would be different. San Pedro with its tour operators, guest houses, restaurants and bars is the gateway…
