Chilling in Baku

The night train to Baku was great.It started off quite strangely when a woman wanted us to change cabins but we didn't understand she just wanted me in the cabin with her and her sons.

Corrientes – off the beaten track

Corrientes is a great place to spend a few days! An unexpected gem when really all we needed was a stopover to break up a 1,400km drive. It's a chilled out place where you could easily get lost for two weeks unwinding. We spent our time walking along the huge Paraná River and going to... Continue Reading →
