10 Things to Do in the Most Northerly Part of Chile

For the past 2 years, we keep thinking that we’ve left Chile for the last time. Then we find ourselves back there. When we decided to leave Bolivia, the most northerly part of Chile was the closest and lowest place to go. So we found ourselves in Chile again. In 2008,...
The Dakar

The Dakar

No, we haven’t just upped-sticks and shipped to Africa, we’re in Bolivia for the world famous Dakar Rally 2017. After a load of security shenanigans in West Africa, the rally formerly known as ‘Paris-Dakar’ was shifted to South America where it’s affectionately known...
Ruta del Mar

Ruta del Mar

Die Ruta del Mar kommt weder in einem unserer Reiseführer vor, noch hatten wir sie auf dem Plan. Viel mehr war sie für uns ein Zufallsfund auf dem Weg von den Termas Geometricas zu Michael, Anneke und Jürgen in La Barca an der Pazifikküste Chiles. Auf der Suche nach...

Not-so-silent night

Not-so-silent night

It’s not every Christmas that we open our presents to the booming sound of Chile’s answer to Snoop-Doggy-Dog (or whatever the latest hip-hop chap is called these days) and to be honest, it wouldn’t be our first choice for 2016 either! Nevertheless, that’s what we get...

Street Art Brazil – from Rio de Janeiro to Brasilia

I had told you that, when sorting through photos and naming them, I found a lot more street art photos from Brazil. To end the year, and to finish our reports from Brazil , this will be our last post of streetart images from Brazil. This header image shows a stunning...
Colca and Coast

Colca and Coast

It’s little visited, the south coast of Peru, which is a real shame. Back in September when we travelled up through southern Peru we took, like most travellers, the mountain route via Lake Titicaca and Cusco. Now south-bound, we’re loving the coastal route south of...
