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 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- 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 […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Ecuador

# please view on iPad or larger screen Ecuador really resonated with Steve and myself. The people, the outdoors, the volcanoes and the architecture all made our time in Ecuador more than this small country ever promised. I like to think the images below give each of you an insight into what an amazing country […]

While avoiding the folly of ranking countries it must be said that Ecuador has the least downsides thus far, there’s simply nothing to pick at in Ecuador, nothing. It’s in this feature that naming a top 10 is tricky, Ecuador is the emotionally […]

While you were working – Party time in Cuenca

Through the alcoholic haze induced by the eastern European occupation of our formerly civilised state, the sights and sounds of Cuenca continue to impress. We finally get around to the Ecuadorian dish controversially called a delicacy by some, cuy, otherwise known as cute little fluffy guinea pigs. It’s definitely an experience and quite a unique […]

While you were working – A day in Cuenca

On our first full day in Cuenca we are pleased to see that our initial feelings are holding true, Cuenca is beautiful, contemporary and the game of ‘avoid the Americans’ isn’t all too invasive. The one funny thing is that early in the week everything seems to be closed, and I mean everything, it seems […]

Gluttony Expedition – Who’d have thought

As we near the end of our travels in Ecuador, a resounding theme that crops up is that whatever you think about Ecuador is probably totally wrong. From culture, style, economy, sophistication and definitely food, Ecuador is far more than that little country in South America (or Africa as many people think apparently), it’s so […]
