The Golden Gate Bridge Proposal and why it was a bit of a shambles!

Chris says he always knew he was planning to propose to James at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Why then was it so last minute and shambolic? Well this is Chris all over isn't it?...

Our first stop in the USA – a perfect birthday, sightseeing like a local & getting sh*tfaced in Seattle!!!

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...

Six adventurous ways to crank up the adrenaline on the Gringo Trail in Peru (and something famous you should probably give a miss)

We're normally pretty lazy human beings, opting for a lie in than any morning exercise. Untrue to form - in our final week in Peru we decided to cram as much action in as possible, mainly because this adventure junkie's paradise is so cheap!

Machu Picchu is unmissable, but it’s also a massive rip off. So was it worth it?

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?

Here’s why a jeep tour from Chile to Bolivia should be on everyone’s ‘before-I-die list’!

Some natural wonders are just so awe inspiringly brilliant, words or even photographs cannot adequately do justice to them. But imagine seeing a series of once in a lifetime views relentlessly, one after another, for three days, and you'll begin to understand what it's like to take part in a Jeep tour from Chile to Bolivia!

From Dusk Til Dawn; our Santiago all nighter & huge row (which Chris lost!)

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!

Steak, that time we almost checked in another girl’s bag in Buenos Aires, and other stories!

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!

Rio de Janeiro: How safe is it really?

The guidebooks say the favelas are safe, scaremongering bloggers suggest not to go out after dark. Thankfully we ignored the warnings not to go out at night, but there is a sinister side, and people who live in Rio say it's getting worse...
