I experienced so many ‘big ticket items’ in Bolivia that I decided to split the country into two blog posts. So get ready for round 2 of Bolivia. (You can see part 1 here.) The last two towns left were the two major ‘bucket list’ items ready to be ticked off. Uyuni with the Salt Flats and La Paz with the Death Road experience. Uyuni: … Continue reading Bolivia: Part 2
Lares Trek- the time in Peru where I ‘literally’ died from exhaustion, tiredness and a lack of breath. Obviously I am exaggerating because I am here to tell the story, however it was probably the closest I’ve ever been to a physical and mental breaking point in a public situation. On the flip side, arriving at Machu Picchu did top off the trek and made … Continue reading Peru Part 2: Lares Trek to Machu Picchu
Welcome to Peru! The country I decided it was a good idea to do three high altitude hikes because I think I’m way fitter than I am.

So stay tuned for the rest. … Continue reading Peru Part 1: Amazon Jungle & Cusco

And yes the time has flown past and no … Continue reading Bolivia: Part 1

Now on the tour, I arrive in a town and I think to myself ‘oh … Continue reading The rest of Argentina
Okay so I’ve found them. I mean it. I’ve found the best churros yet. A cute little park in Santiago, Chile with a mini fair happening for a Sunday afternoon, well looked after street dogs roaming everywhere and many couples and families enjoying the day. And there it was. This dodgy little food cart in the middle of the park, housing an old man freshly … Continue reading Argentina with a dash of Chile.
Waterfall chasing is by far my most enjoyable adventure to go on. I just love the thrill of exploring rocks, paths and nature to reach a beautiful waterfall and have the opportunity to get drenched in its water- especially if it’s been hot. So when I reached Iguazu Falls, one of the world’s largest waterfalls bordering Argentina and Brazil, I was, as I explained it … Continue reading Iguazu Falls
