Island Hopping from Coron

Andy and I booked a day trip island hopping around the Coron area. The trip cost 1,600 Pesos (£24), with snorkeling gear costing 150 Pesos extra. It is my first proper touristy activity in the Philippines and it's funny already. The guide is nicknamed 59 Seconds and he is a real comedian. Our first stop... Continue Reading →

The alternative route does a short ferry hop from Buenos Aires to Colonia in Uruguay before continuing... Continue Reading →

Corrientes – off the beaten track

Corrientes is a great place to spend a few days! An unexpected gem when really all we needed was a stopover to break up a 1,400km drive. It's a chilled out place where you could easily get lost for two weeks unwinding. We spent our time walking along the huge Paraná River and going to... Continue Reading →
