Wednesday, 3rd December We woke up tired from the long bus ride the day before. I think I fell asleep around 9pm when the fatigue set in and therefore was clearly in need of sleep, getting up around 10am today. We didn’t have too many plans for today so didn’t need to get up that early. […]

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 […]

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. […]

So we are over halfway now, having been travelling for just over 160 days and I think it’s a good time to review some of the food and drink we have had the pleasure of sampling in the countries through which we have passed. Sadly I did not take photos of all the delicious food but this will […]

Our first night in New Orleans was spent at the Crescent Palms Motel, near to the hostel where will be checking in the next day. We have since learned that New Orleans is referred to as the crescent city due to the bay it sits on. We just lazed around the motel and checked out […]

We flew to St. Louis and reminded ourselves why we haven’t done much flying on this trip. Everything went pretty much to plan but as always with flying you spend so much time waiting around that you lose pretty much a whole day no matter how short the flight. We did meet a lovely couple from […]
