A trip to the Peruvian Amazon Jungle

The journey is often just as impressive as the destination. That’s how it feels lounging in my colourful hammock drifting along Rio Hullaga in the Northern Peruvian Amazon. It’s not actually a picture of tranquility; yes I have slept through most of the journey, but my hammock it tied to a big, old, rusty cargo…

Santa Cruz Trek Unguided

We came to Huaraz for 3 reasons. To hike Santa Cruz, the most popular trail of the nearby Cordillera Blanca, to recover our tired legs with a few ales at Sierra Andina brewery, and to eat a mean curry after a 9-month curry hiatus. The curry was amazing. Head to Chilli Heaven for a huge…

The Blue Rate – Not Quite the Blessing it Might Seem

It might seem like a traveller’s dream hearing that you can almost double your money when travelling in Argentina, but we now know it can be quite the opposite… Basically Argentina has a huge inflation problem – it officially runs at 20%, however in reality it’s somewhere around the 40% range.

Chilean Empanada de Pino – Beef empanada recipe

We were lucky enough to be given a private empanada cooking lesson from our Chilean friends in Valparaíso. We needed something to do while we waited for our car to sell…Read about our experiences buying and selling a car in Chile. The verdict: these empanadas came up a treat! Some of the best in Chile.…

The Empanada Diaries

Empanadas. The One Thing in South America that will never let you down (unless it gives you the shits). It’s no surprise that South America can be a little dodgy at times, but the trusty empanada doesn’t fit this category. In fact, it can make the unwanted moments of travel a whole lot better (it…

Hello

What I’m trying to achieve from this blog: I want to find the best bagels in the world. I want to answer the questions I’ve had on my travels that I couldn’t find answers to. I want to concentrate on the food, but there’s so much more learnt whilst travelling so anything useful I’ve picked…
