Coastal Ecuador to Peru

Coastal Ecuador to Peru

Adam writes on 2014-04-24: Máncora is nice little beach town an hour or so south of the border with Ecuador.  We arrived here a few days ago following a fairly straight forward border crossing having stayed the previous night in Machala, Ecuador.  There wasn’t too much to report with regards to the border crossing except that […]

Any Palomino is a Pal of Mine (Colombia)

Adam writes on 2014-03-06: I am writing from Hostal Finca Escondida near Palomino, Colombia.  We are on the Caribbean coast, and not too far from Santa Marta.

En route to costal Colombia

Adam writes on 2014-02-28: I am writing from Aguachica, Colombia, a via point to northern Colombia.  Over the last couple of days, having left Bogotá, we have stayed in Villa de Leyva (a small non-quite-UNESCO-but-should colonial town), and San Gil (a tourist hub to adventure sports enthusiasts). We arrived in Aquachica yesterday evening following a […]

Bogotá, Colombia

Adam writes on 2014-02-18: Hello from barrio Suba in Bogotá, Colombia.  We arrived here safely yesterday on our mid-day flight with Copa Airlines.  There was nothing to report about the flight, and not surprisingly, it lacks the familiar good nature and humour of West Jet in Canada. The only two points of drama were that […]

In and around Panama City

Santa Ana, El Salvador

Adam writes on 2014-01-20: We are currently in Santa Ana, El Salvador.  I am going to backtrack for a moment and then catch up. JP wrote about our ride back from Semuc Champey to Coban.  To just take you back a bit, this involved us slugging up various tropical mountainous roads.  My black Kevlar mesh […]

Pupusas in Coban

Adam writes on 2014-01-08: So here we are Cobán kicking back for the day.  Having made guacamole in our room, we spent the remainder of the evening hanging out with a couple guys from Germany, as well as a new friend Drew who is super friendly, very laid back and interested in shamanism and the […]

Cobán, Guatemala

Adam writes on 2014.01.07: I am writing from Cobán, Guatemala which is a via point for a visit to the Tikal ruins in northern Guatemala.  We are staying at a very simple and affordable place called Hotel La Paz.  Our room costs just less than Q75 (about US$10) and includes hot water, soap, toilet paper, […]

From New Years in Panajachel to Antigua

Adam writes on 2014.01.03: I am writing from Antigua Guatemala, sitting in the courtyard of a hotel called Posadita Casa Maria Jose.  It is basically an old colonial homestead where the family lives in the back behind some doors and where the front has six or so guest rooms with their own bathrooms.  It is […]
