A Weekend in Barcelona

I spent a weekend in Barcelona recovering from overeating in San Sebastian by... eating yet more tapas! My flight was delayed so I got to Barcelona later than anticipated, and the airport is insanely laid out so it took me forever to find my bag. I managed to find the airport bus and paid €5.90...

Minsk Walking Tour and Urban Art

I joined the Minsk Free Walking Tour that meets at 11am at City Hall on Svabody Square. The tour lasts two hours and finishes at Victory Square right next to Dreamy Castle Hostel. My guide was Roma and he is Belarusian and has been living and working in Minsk for 8 years. He said something... Continue Reading →

Minsk – my first day

Minsk is astoundingly beautiful at first sight. Maybe that's why they only gave me an 8-day visa. The night bus was totally lame and I didn't really sleep so I have arrived in Minsk so tired I could fall asleep standing up. The hostel reception doesn't open until 10am so when my bus arrived at...

Estonia – love at first sight

Right place at the right time I think, as it has been a blast since I arrived.Sunday 8 JulyMy flight landed later than scheduled but it was easy enough to catch the bus to Freedom Square at the edge of...

New Orleans – all the funs

I had the best time in The Big Easy! This is the most charismatic and friendly place and I would love to go back. It was a whistle-stop tour and I feel like I hit most of the major must-do things! I arrived late at the airport and James drove from his home in Florida... Continue Reading →

Ushuaia – the end of the world

I am now at el fin del mundo - the end of the world. Coming in to land in Tierra del Fuego was an incredible experience. Stunning beauty all around. Ushuaia, the world's Southernmost city, is surrounded by the Martial mountain range and the Beagle Channel, leading to its phenomenal vistas. I've never seen snowcapped... Continue Reading →

Paraguay and the drive to Iberá

First impressions of Paraguay were great! It's totally different to Brazil and Argentina despite being just across the river. As you cross the bridge the cars and motorbikes decide to make four exciting lanes rather than two mundane ones so you're absolutely surrounded. The city itself has a wall of high rise shopping malls and... Continue Reading →

Drive day to Brazil

The 8 hour drive from Corrientes to Foz do Iguaçu across the border into Brazil on December 23rd was phenomenal. The weather at the start was apocalyptic. We also came across a large wildfire and had to drive through patches of smoke which totally obscured the road! But as we headed East along the Paraguayan... Continue Reading →

Hasta Luego Chile!

After nearly two weeks in Chile (Santiago, Rapa Nui and Valparaiso) I'm heading over the Andes today in search of the perfect steak and wine. I do love a good mountain too. The bus is 8 hours and cost just under $50USD. The best two sites to book buses are Recorrido and Busbud, where you... Continue Reading →
