This was the second to last stop on our round the world trip - and it was EPIC, including sights, celebs, plenty of cocktails, and hanging in Brooklyn!
Tina Fey, Bill Murray, Steve Carrell, Amy Poehler, Mike Meyers, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy. Is there a comedian on this list you don’t LOVE? They’ve all got one thing in common; a comedy improv school in Chicago called Second City. And these two residents of Britain’s second city had to pay it a visit.
When we crash landed in Vegas from San Diego, we knew we wouldn’t be spending our days sipping Cristal and gambling away our life savings. But if you're canny you can enjoy everything Sin City has to offer, without breaking the bank!
We couldn't come all this way and not come to LA, and although we found some gems, in the main we found it to be a vast, trashy touristy hell hole!
We weren't 'Sleepless in Seattle', more 'Sh*tfaced in Seattle!', but then it was Chris' birthday!

But it's not only the world's largest coffee chain this city has given to the world...
After nearly 3 and a half months of non stop travelling and 2 weeks in Bolivia at high altitude, it was only a matter of time before one of us came a cropper, and despite his smugness about ‘having done all this before in 2007’ it was Chris who bit the dust first!
We knew being in South America for Easter would be a spectacle, but some of the traditions & processions we saw were just downright weird!
San Pedro de Atacama is peak Gringo Trail. The town itself feels like Disney World Does The Desert. But there's a reason we - and so many others - make this an unmissable stop on their South American journey....

We were promised the world from many of the tour operators, even though essentially every tour is the same. To save you those three days, here are our top tips on how to choose and how to avoid being ripped off!
It started as an innocent pub crawl. It ended at 9am after three clubs, getting stuck in the Santiago Marathon, a blazing row on which direction to go, then a three-hour drunken stumble home!
