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 […]

La Paz to Poto$i

Jenn writes on 2014-06-07: Hello from Sucre, Bolivia, the constitutional capital of Bolivia.  With any respect, we just arrived at this relatively low altitude (2,800 meters) and haven’t been this low since Aguas Calientes, Peru.  The weather here is nice and summery 🙂  I now have head cold – my first since Guatemala 🙁 We […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
