The Great Californian Road Trip Part 2 – fending off bears & squirrels in Yosemite National Park!

The middle of our road trip heralded one of our biggest arguments so far, Chris was paranoid about hungry bears and horror stories of them ripping open cars and camper vans like tin cans! James told him not to be stupid…

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?

When altitude sickness (aka man-flu) took Chris down & all we needed was a little luxury!

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!

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!

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!

Comedy tour guides, our 12 year-old plane pilot & 4×4 bumpiness. Welcome to Fraser Island!

Fraser Island is a wild wildnerness that happens to attract hundreds of backpackers and daytrippers. Our unintentionally hilarious tour guide David may have been intensely annoying, but it's given us years' worth of dinner party tales!

Streaking Air BnB guests, inappropriate Golliwogs & avoiding the tourist masses; The Blue Mountains didn’t fail to surprise!

The Blue Mountains are breathtaking, but its main town of Katoomba is stuck in a crumbling Art Deco time warp where golliwogs still prop up the gift shop windows. Luckily, we found some chinks of modernity in a knockout coffee shop and some unexpected street art.
