On 1st Oct, 2015, we headed off on a journey, hoping to travel around the world. 


We have sailed across the Atlantic and up through the Caribbean, toured North, Central and South America  in our VW van and are now enjoying our trip through New Zealand.

After vehicles works and medical checks, we eventually managed to escape Arequipa and continue east toward Lake Titicaca.

Our journey took us up through the southern part of the Reserva National de Salinas y Aguada Blanca (salt lakes) and on to the Altiplano Andino (hig...

From the Sacred Valley we had planned on heading to Cañon del Cocha to see the Condors, stopping along the way to see the Q'eswachaka handwoven Inca bridge across the Apurimac Canyon.   The bridge is remade each June and takes 4 days, to complete, with much dancing and...

8th August.  We arrived in the historic Colonial city of Cusco.  The drive through the city to our campsite was a little edgy - super narrow old streets with high kerbs and barely enough room to manoeuvre the van.  Having safely negotiated the streets, we settled into...

4th July - With an Amazon adventure in mind, we drove across the country to Yurimaguas, a main port on the Rio Marañon and gateway to the northern Amazon basin.  Our first objective was to find a slow boat to Nauta or Iquitos, so we headed for the Port and were immedia...

23rd June and a Saturday afternoon on the road towards Peru, with a plan to cross the border on the Monday.  We made good time...... Let's cross the border now.  We pass the ´Welcome to Peru´ sign and arrive at Peruvian Border Control.  Well where is the exit to Ecuado...
