Before I set sail on my Antarctic Voyage

That's her! That's my boat!! First cruise in my life and I choose over 20 days at sea on the roughest sea in the world. Haha this could be interesting. That said, I have packed sooooo many pills for this trip - sea sickness, altitude sickness, malaria, vitamins... I thought I was going to be... Continue Reading →

Montevideo – sun, sand and steaks

To get to Montevideo we decided to pay for a direct ferry as it takes about 2 hours less than the ferry + bus combo and the tickets only cost about $10USD more as we booked last minute. The alternative route does a short ferry hop from Buenos Aires to Colonia in Uruguay before continuing... Continue Reading →

Buenos Aires – the city of tango

I've got until 9th January before I fly down to Southern Argentina so we're splitting the time between Buenos Aires and a few days in Montevideo, Uruguay. On... Continue Reading →

This cool metallic pod houses immigration! It was such a nice shelter from the scorching sun. The border guards were really friendly and we... Continue Reading →

Hasta Luego Chile!

After nearly two weeks in Chile (Santiago, Rapa Nui and Valparaiso) I'm heading over the Andes today in search of the perfect steak and wine. I do love a good mountain too. The bus is 8 hours and cost just under $50USD. The best two sites to book buses are Recorrido and Busbud, where you... Continue Reading →

The Nomad Chapter Begins

So today my Nomad Chapter began. Anybody that spoke to me in the last few weeks will know that I adopted the stance that the less I thought about this life-changing step, the less I could worry. I figured I would be just fine, and I think it worked. I made sure I was vaccinated... Continue Reading →
