Saturday, 29th November Being all out of cereals and milk I had to make the short walk around the corner to pick up some more provisions for our next few mornings here in Buenos Aires. We are enjoying eating at home and not having to find somewhere new and exciting to have breakfast every day. Not […]

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 […]

Tuesday, 28th October I awoke to scenes of the Pacific coast out of the window as the sun was coming up. You could see fishing boats out in the surf making the morning’s catch in the half-light. It makes quite a picture. We had a good nights sleep, well good for a bus that is. […]

Monday, 27th October The journey to the border between Ecuador and Peru was uneventful with only the occasional army or police official poking their heads inside the bus with a torch to see that everything was in order. The lights went on around 3am when we were ushered off the bus as we had come […]

Friday 3rd October The flight to Quito only took an hour and a half but I still managed to get a nap in. We landed at the same time as another international flight so had a large line to contend with at immigration. Because we have done most of our travel through buses we haven’t […]

So, more than a little tired we eventually gave up […]
