We left home Thursday, referendum day after Fiona finished work and blasted down to Durham our culinary needs refreshed by what I though was a bizarrely placed Indian restaurant at a service station on the A1. No dramas and up the following morning to find out...
Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu

The alarm wakes us up at 4.15AM. There is still no electricity. Armed with a headlamp, we head out into the dark streets. By 5AM we join an army of backpackers who, like us, are not willing to cough up the money for the bus ride up the mountain. The guys are sleeping...
Albania

Cusco And The Epic Ride To Machu Picchu

Cusco And The Epic Ride To Machu Picchu

The sun wakes us up early in the morning and we find ourselves in a desolate but beautiful region. I make coffee and one after the other emerges from their tents. It is still a long way to Cusco and we are not sure we’ll make it today. Patrick wants to gun it there...
Lima Survivor

Lima Survivor

The hostel we stay at turns out to be a gathering place for overlanders. We meet a biker from Canada and one from Colombia. There is another Canadian with a 4×4 and we have a good time exchanging stories and experiences. We explore the neighborhood for a while...
Sidecar Rally

Circumstances meant our usual trip to Southern Ireland to see Martin and the crew didn’t happen, a most excellent substitute though was Norrie’s Sidecar rally at Moniaive, Dumfrieshire. Its a part of the country neglected by tourists in general and its...
