The Heist – 2/4

Approximately 10pm, November 27 2014.   Emotions this acute should not be drawn out this long, they simply can’t it seems. But sadly they can, an entire existence can be squeezed into the space of a knife edge. That’s how we feel right now, as our bodies become a rubbish tip picked over by opportunists the […]

The Heist – Part 1/4

A year has passed in which we have documented and shared nearly every minute. There were however eight hours we missed from the road between Huanchaco and Trujillo Peru on 27-28th November 2014. This story begins at approximately 8pm in Huanchaco, Peru.  There were signs. We tell ourselves through a fleeting veil of shared guilt […]

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 […]

While you were working – Farewell Peru

We’re finally heading out of Peru, this day cannot have come soon enough. We have thankfully been able to stay sane and not get a divorce during the most painful travel week ever and now metaphorically it’s time to finally flush this toilet. The stubborn unnaturally buoyant turd that is Peru has been preventing this […]

While you were working – Lima, The pretty bits

With the day into Lima centre resounding as a more impacting window into the city and possibly the country than expected we wind up our final painful days in Lima sticking to what can only be called the pretty bits of the city. While any city in the world has areas with more appeal than […]

While you were working – A day on the town, Lima

The time has come to view the mountain of administrative crap we need to do and realise that most of it is behind us rather than in front. Admittedly Charlie has been in spreadsheet organisational mode and I’ve, for the most part, just been looking pretty: and doing a great job of it might I […]
