We weren't 'Sleepless in Seattle', more 'Sh*tfaced in Seattle!', but then it was Chris' birthday! How fortunate then for our hangovers this is the city where Starbucks was born, & we made two new friends who showed us all the sights worth seeing! But it's not only the world's largest coffee chain this city has given to the world...
This may be controversial... but from start to finish, we felt milked by Machu Picchu. It cost us the best part of £800 over 2 days. Are the Peruvians ripping everyone off? Can you really blame them? Or could there be a cheaper way of doing it?
Buenos Aires is a remarkable city, unique in South America. But its abiding memory for us is the time we narrowly averted disaster after picking up someone else's backpack from our hostel and nearly flying off with it!
When we found out we would be driving past the Round the Twist lighthouse down the Great Ocean Road we had to visit, but we never knew it'd lead us 12,000 miles home!
