Return to North America

Return to North America

Jenn writes on 2014-07-10: We have returned to North America via Miami and are currently sweating profusely with a couple of cold beers in hand. We arrived here on Wednesday July 2nd in the afternoon after a rather eventful flight on Copa Airlines from Buenos Aires.  In an effort to save money, our flight had […]

A Whirlwind Argentina

A Whirlwind Argentina

Jenn writes on June 24, 2014 from Buenos Aires, Argentina: After crossing into Argentina, I was surprised at how flat it was.  Adam reminded me that we were still up in the altiplano at over 3000 meters above sea level, and it was somewhat premature to expect immediate change as soon as crossing over the […]

Sucre, Potosí and Uyuni

Sucre, Potosí and Uyuni

Jenn writes on 2014-07-17: After Adam’s tour of the mine, we felt that our time in Potosí had been sufficiently completed and it was time to set our sights on a new place. Sucre is known as “the white city” due to the high number of white colonial buildings.  Although it is the third largest […]

Lima to Abancay, Peru

Jenn writes on 2014-05-15: We said adios to Lima and left all of its upscale Miraflores delights, and depressing grey skies (no sun the entire time we were there!) and hit the road. Our next stop was Huacachina, a desert oasis just outside of Ica. The ride from Lima was more blowing, coastal desert underneath […]

Lima (beans, yo!) and mullets

Jenn writes on 2014-05-11: Bright lights, classy city, crazy drivers – greetings from Lima! We arrived in Lima mid-afternoon after a long day’s ride through more coastal desert. This time the road had us travelling up and down over mountains (or sand dunes?) as we coasted alongside, well, the coast. The weather wasn’t ideal and […]

Glistening in Guayaquil

Glistening in Guayaquil

Jenn writes on 2014-04-14: Hola from hot and humid Guayquil!  We have descended from the Andes mountains and are moving towards the coast of Ecuador for a much needed break from the chill of the Andes.  The Andes can be challenging with its steep grades and twisty roads.  Our final decent was enjoyable and rather […]

Yes, I’d love some wine with my Pasto

Yes, I’d love some wine with my Pasto

Jenn writes on 2014-03-25: Woah! We have some catch-up to do!  It’s been an eventful twenty-odd days since we last checked in! We are currently back in the Andes in a city called Pasto, approximately 100 kilometres from the Ecuadorian border.  Although not a very pretty city, it does have some pretty nice colonial buildings […]
