Amazon Adventure Part II

We arrived at our host family’s home by taravita (Spanish for rusty and life-threatening cable car) late the next afternoon after walking through sweltering heat and pouring rain from the bus drop off point a few kilometres away. Apparently few volunteers venture out this way, preferring the creature comforts of life in the city. All … Continue reading

Sun, Sand and High Altitude Sea? Lake Titicaca and the Isla del Sol

Lake Titicaca defies all reasonable logic. It’s expansive deep blue waters go on for as far as the eye can see, with small waves crashing upon white sandy shores. You could be forgiven for thinking you are on a tranquil beach somewhere. The only problem is that the ‘playas’ of Lake Titicaca are at 3,800 … Continue reading

A Cup a day the Buena Vista Way

Waking up to the smell of fresh coffee is the only way for me to start my day. When we found out about El Cafetal, an organic coffee farm and in the lowlands of where you can stay, drink coffee and relax overlooking the Amboro National Park, we had to go and see for ourselves. … Continue reading

Letting off Steam at the Tatio Geysers – San Pedro Part 4

The Tatio Geysers, 99 km from San Pedro de Atacama is another surreal landscape adorning the Atacama desert in northern Chile.   Our sunrise bike ride to Valle de la Luna was a good practice run for waking up early for a 4am trip to Tatio Geysers. At 4,320 metres above sea level, I’m not sure … Continue reading

Five Days and Four Seasons at the World’s End – Ushuaia

At the end of the world, the wild winds blow, the weather is unpredictable and the landscapes are natural and pure. One can imagine what Magellan, one of the first explorers of this region, felt when he passed through the Beagle Canal on his ship. As he sailed in he saw small fires lighting up … Continue reading

In the heart of Argentinean Patagonia at the end of Route 40 lies El Calafate at 50º20‘ latitude, the gateway to some of this country’s most amazing natural wonders.

San Martín and the Route of the Seven Lakes

 The past few days in Bariloche had been a little grey and drizzly, but we had heard so many good things about San Martín de los Andes and the route of the seven lakes that we didn’t want to miss it. Beautiful, lindo, serene, stunning were some of the adjectives used to describe the landscape we’d … Continue reading

Malbec and Mountains – Part 1

Driving into Mendoza early in the morning I made out the snow-capped mountains in the distance, the sunrise reflecting pink on their white tips. Finally we made it to Mendoza! Although the ride here wasn’t smooth. Rosario to Mendoza is a 12-hour overnight bus ride. We wanted to make sure that we got in some … Continue reading
