Charlie and Steve's Excellent Adventure

Tasting the world one meal at a time

Month / March 2015

While you were working – Home, Cape Town, South Africa

Buenos Aires hums and thrums with the pulse that only a big city can, a massive heaving mob of people crowded into a space probably a little too small and making something awesome of it anyway. In many ways BA represents so much of what Latin America has become to us: fashionable, energetic, disorganised and […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Latin America

Six months travelling from Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Uruguay and Argentina has resulted in the below 26 shots which we seem to keep coming back to. The feature image above (making 27)  captures our experience the most comprehensively.  The image was taken while submitting Volcano Purace in Colombia and reflects the amount of […]

Top 10 – Argentina

The land of meat, wine and turning up late; you’d be forgiven for applying this simple tag line to Argentina. We have spent ten weeks soaking in meat, wine and a lifestyle that couldn’t care less about what time it is, the longest span in any country we plan to visit. With so much time […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Argentina 

Steve and I have spent The last 10 weeks in Argentina and can’t believe we are leaving at the end of this week.  Below are some of our favourite photographs from that time. Click on the photos to be taken to the relevant post the photo was originally in if you’d like more context. To […]

While you were working – An Exhale, Buenos Aires, Argentina

A long drawn out and much needed exhale is what we find ourselves within, a temporary pause in the midst of the whirlwind that has been our last six months. In the rush of this adventure we have been assailed by sights, experiences and immersions so relentlessly that a slight pause becomes more than a […]

Top 5’s – Latin America

Jumping the gun slightly with a few days to wile away in Buenos Aires it’s time to deviate somewhat from the social commentary, cultural immersion and environmental observations. It’s time to recount what any traveller needs to know about South America. Forget the travel guides, TV shows and, ahem, the blogs because we have all […]

While you were working – More Than One Window, Buenos Aires, Argentina

So far from mountains we find ourselves, alpine escapists no more as we delve into the heady sweaty hum of one of the worlds great big cities. Buenos Aires unquestionably defies the Argentinian cliche that we’ve seen in cities settling some distance from the vibrant culture that defines this country. Buenos Aires has swagger, flair, […]

While you were working – Scratching an Itch, Colonia, Uruguay

There’s a really unglamorous side to travelling sometimes, particularly on these longer jaunts. Shorter term travel is so often full of excitement, sights and jam packed full of everything and anything; longer term travel too for the most part but there’s one tiny little massive difference. We can’t just ‘leave it till we get home’. […]

While you were working- American History- X, Latin America

Travelling, what a romantic notion: sandy white beaches, not a care in the world, cocktails at any hour of the day and mind broadening experiences.  Yes it’s all these things and more, when travelling it’s nearly impossible not to catch whisps of politics, tensions and history from anywhere you go. Every country in this great […]
