Sucre and Roadblocks: Welcome to Bolivia

Sucre and Roadblocks: Welcome to Bolivia

After Uyuni our plan was to head to Potosi an old mining town for a day or two then on to Sucre, where we had an appointment to meet up with our friends from SprinterLife, Tree and Stevie and their beautiful daughter Sol who was still in her mama’s belly the last time...
The Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

The Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

I remember, what seems like a lifetime ago, when we were saving and planning for this trip reading the blogs of people traveling South America and getting inspiration for our travels. Some places, in photo after photo, were so spectacular they became a must visit on...
Why We Love Buenos Aires

Why We Love Buenos Aires

Aahh, Buenos Aires. The city of good air. We often say in our posts about cities that we are not huge fans of cities, but then go on to list all the reasons why we liked that particular city. For this post, I’m going to skip that opening. The truth is I’ve realized...
Beautiful Patagonia

Beautiful Patagonia

Oh, Patagonia. I can’t even come up with the words to describe your beauty. From your jagged granite peaks, flowing glaciers that reflect every color of blue imaginable, clean flowing rivers and lakes packed with trout and salmon, to your wild wind swept grasslands,...
Into Argentina-Our 13th Country

Into Argentina-Our 13th Country

Our first border crossing into Argentina was the quickest and easiest we’ve experienced on our entire trip. We crossed at a remote border called Paso Roballos. From the Chilean border post, where one guy -on a 30 day rotation and 2 weeks past due- was working and...
The Carretera Austral-Part 2

The Carretera Austral-Part 2

The town of Coyhaique is located about half way through the Carretera Austral and is also the biggest “city” with a burgeoning population of 50,000. After so long spent on empty roads and surrounding wilderness it was a bit jarring to pull into the main plaza and be...
The Carretera Austral-Part 1

The Carretera Austral-Part 1

The Carretera Austral is a true overlanders dream; over 1200 kilometers (over 700 miles) of dirt road running through Chile’s southern region, where the land breaks off into hundreds of fjords and tiny islands, connecting Chile’s remotest region with the north. I read...
The Cordillera Blanca

The Cordillera Blanca

Leaving the narrow Cañon del Pato and the jagged mouthed tunnels behind, we climbed up into a big wide open valley between the two cordilleras. Whereas the Cañon del Pato is dry with very little vegetation, this valley is covered in a palette of greens stretching up...
Lima, Peru

Lima, Peru

When we arrived in Lima, we thought we would just be spending a couple of days and moving on. As this is no doubt not the first time this has happened, I don’t know why we were surprised when we were still here a month later. A series of car problems and waiting for...
Driving to Chachapoyas

Driving to Chachapoyas

Looking at a map, it is easy to understand that Peru is a very large country. However, it wasn’t until we started our drive to Chachapoyas that we really got a full understanding of just how large it is. Our route on the map takes up only a very small portion of the...
