Tuesday, 25th November We got up after a good night’s sleep in our new apartment (which we have for the week) and after breakfast of cereals that we bought at the supermarket the night before we made a rough plan for our week here in Buenos Aires. This included things we wanted to see, neighbourhoods […]

Saturday, 22nd November We arrived into the bus terminal of Cordoba at around 9am after a not too bad night’s sleep. It was broken but unlike the bus rides we actually had some sleep. I remember waking up about every hour or so but with the seats being a bit more comrtable than usual, having […]

Wednesday, 19th November We woke up late today and slept through the hostel breakfast. We weren’t that bothered as it was probably just eggs and toast, it was nice to sleep in though as last night we were plagued by a mosquito. Not in the usual sense with it buzzing in our ears, but a […]

Tuesday, 18th November I slept well last night except for waking around 1pm to find a cat in my bed. There is a cat that lives in the hostel and it had obvisouly crawled into our room through an outside window during the night. I awoke to a wet nose on my foot but oddly […]

Sunday, 16th November We got up in Chile’s capital to a quiet sunday morning. I still find it funny how quiet a capital city can be, some really take sunday seriously and do nothing at all, just hang with their families. I wandered down for the included breakfast and as expected there wasn’t anything that […]

Thursday, 13th November We woke up not feeling that great. Altitude (we are still at over 2,300m above sea level) and a rich meal with alcohol doesn’t go together so it would seem. We had to make it to Chile today, with flights and accommodation booked so feeling groggy we got up, had breakfast and […]

Tuesday, 11th November I would say we woke up this morning but that would imply a night’s sleep. Neither of us slept that well and were awake most of the night. We grabbed a couple of hours here and there but we pulled into the Arequipa bus terminal feeling very groggy and keen for a […]

Wednesday, 5th November We awoke at 5:30am and were at the breakfast table for 6am, as we had requested the day before. We wanted to get to Machu Picchu early but not too early. The first bus leaves Aguas Calientes at 5:30am with those wanting to get there even earlier walking up (takes an hour […]

Sunday, 2nd November Today we had a plan to go to Ollantaytambo via a couple of other towns so we got up, packed and had to check out by 9:30am, the earliest for a while. I had the hostel breakfast but then we also went out for a cafe breakfast. Cusco is a nice place […]

Friday, 31st October I didn’t get the best night’s sleep on the bus last night. The problem with everyone having their own entertainment TV screen is that it makes the bus very light and the seats in front of us have theirs mounted up high as they are the first row, so I had to […]
