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 […]

Top 10 – Mexico

Here it is ladies and gentlemen, we know you’ve all been waiting for it, it’s our top 10 for Mexico. We’ve come to this list based on our experience, will it stick with us, was it enlightening, did it exceed expectations? So some of this might surprise, some of it will be obvious if you’ve […]

While you were working – If God did a poo

As we prepare to fly out of this crazy country we call Mexico, it feels like we’ve already left. Not because of some ethereal high-brow poetic concept, simply because Cancun feels nothing like any shade of Mexico we’ve seen. In short, if there was a god, and if he was the interventionist type, you’d say […]

While you were working – Unearthing a gem

We’re winding up our time in Mexico now and we leave behind a relatively small town called Tulum. Relatively small in that it is in close proximity to Cancun, Playa Del Carmen and Cosumel, far more noted tourist destinations. We came for a few nights and stayed over a week, it turned out to be […]

While you were working – A day at the beach

We contacted the local fire brigade and paramedics for this one, Charles Philip Winn was going to go to the beach and expose that luscious ranga pigment (or lack thereof) to the tropical sun. In the face of a very realistic fear that he was going to burst into flame like a vampire in cheesy […]

Gluttony Expedition: How Australia butchers Mexican food

Tacos do not have ANY of the following… – There is no ‘Old el Paso’ pre-made kit here. Holy crap don’t start me. Tacos here are nearly always street food. Tacos are not a saucy rich slop-fest, they’re a ridiculous whack of freshness. You never eat a meal of tacos here and leave the table […]

While you were working – Cenote Diving in Tulum, Mexico

Ok this one is a little for the diving nuts among us but lets all put on our imagination caps just for a little. Our dive master took absolutely rubbish photos so i’ve scored some web images of the particular cenotes we dives, please excuse the plagiarism… What is a Cenote? This part of the […]
