Mosquera & Seymour

New spots, new guide, new luck!? We try, the first dive site is supposed to be a very good site to spot white tips and hammerheads, the second to see Rays (eagle, golden and maybe manta). After a semi-complicated start caused by the new girl that didn’t have enough weight and the DM loosing her, […]

Early day today, we meet at the dive shop at 7… we leave for Floreana, the southernmost of Galapagos Islands, about 30 nautical miles from Puerto Ayora. The trip there lastas about two hours and the ocean is fairly calm but it manages to knock down Ryan and Luca’s wife and to make Sarah focus […]

Gordon’s Rock

Yipiha..we are finally going diving!! With all the underwater advertising picture that we saw, we were more than ready to see school of hammerheads, whale sharks, turtles, penguins and all the rest. Apparently the place is one of the best to see what we really want to see: Hammerheads. We had the video camera of […]

We stayed 4 days in Baños. The place wasnice (even though Vilcabamba had a better setting) and I would say with too many tourists around. We had great plans and hips of activities to choose from but my stomach didn’t let us enjoy the place as much as the rainy weather. So Marco decided to […]

Titicaca lake – Isla del Sol

A two hour boat ride that brought us to Isla del Sol on the Titicaca lake was sooooo slow, that swimming would have been faster. Anyway the landscape was just amazing. The lake is dark blue and the islands are yellowish. Isla de Sol is supposed to be the beginning of the Inca religion because […]

Rurrenabaque – Copacabana

The 3 days boat ride we did a few days earlier saved us about 18 hours of gravel road. Even though it was the budget of 2 days, we decided to take the plane, bringing us back to La Paz. As we arrived at the airport, we saw a bunch of cows grazing the landing […]

No picture for this post: just an explanation. After our 3 days in the desert, we headed to Potosi. The 6 hours ride by bus ( first experience with Bolivian bus) were just the worst…After the good no wonderful quality of service in Argentina, we ( I) were not prepared to THAT. -10°c inside by […]

Salta-San Pedro de Atacama (Chile)

Finally the bus company tells us that the Paso de Jama road (around 5300m) has been cleared from snow and that we can leave for Chile. The ride is magnificent, form Salta (around 1000m) it’s all up, we pass Jujuy, Pumamarca, Salinas Grande and finally after an incredible valley, get to the Argentinian border (4000m). […]

Stuck in Salta

We were supposed to leave Salta for Chile asap, but it was snowing up there at 5300m so our bus was canceled tree days in a row. Instead we enjoyed our last moments in Argentina by eating as much meat as we could. VIVA LA PARILLA!

Well it was a long day on the road but just fantastic. The morning was meant to be a 50 km – 2 hours and a half of driving to a small village named Iruya so you can imagine the road conditions. Well we could have been on time if we hadn’t flat the tire […]

Unfortunately the train de las Nubes (of the clouds) isn’t working anymore, so instead we rented a Fiat punto for two days to follow part of the same way. That was an excellent idea. The road was amazing (even though really bumpy for our small old car). Mountains were colorful and cactus were shining under […]

Once we got to hostel we met Thierry, a Fribourgeois we had met in Malargüe coupple of days ago and […]

Aconcagua at 6968 mts

6968 m, the highest point of the Americas, this is the Mt. Aconcagua, 3 hours SW of Mendoza. Of course, many people come here to conquer this giant, but not many do that in June (beginning of the southern hemisphere’s winter) and neither do we. Anyway, being so close to it we decide to go […]

So, here we are, the wine-country of mendoza. All the best argentinian wines come from her and of curse, we’re goin to taste as many as possible. We dedicated the first and second day to visiting the lovely city, watching euro08 games, eating and drinking fine and working on the usual web project. The last […]

Las Leñas – Malarguë

For the French speaking people, the opening day of the “Las Lenas” ski resort was a live remake of the movie “Les bronzés font du ski”. That day was free for everybody so 14 buses of students from Mendoza showed up for this occasion with Mam and Dad outfits from the 70’s…sssoooo funny. Not to […]

Bariloche (Colonia Suiza)

With the swiss national team playing that day, we thought that we could visit a small village nearby called colonia suiza and watch the match with swiss people because this place has been founded by two swiss French family (the mermod and the goys) about 3 generations ago.What a bad idea! To get there, we […]

El Bolson – Bariloche

El Bolson

El bolson is settled in a really nice place, surrounded by high mountains, unfortunately it is raining so we don’t really get the chance to visit this place. Only the small local “feria”, with a few hippies standing behind their stands and selling their own marmalade or wristband in order to survive…you know what i […]

El Chalten to Saramiento

After the awesome days at el Chalten we decide to move a bit back north. Patagonia in winter is great but unfortunately in low (if not death) season and a lot of services are not available anymore. Our plan was to hit north on the Ruta 40 which winds trough the Andes up all the […]

el calafate – el chalten

it was an “only” a 4 hours drive to el chalten (hihaaaa)! there was even a “pee stop” in the middle of nowhere. Just a “panaderia” that we seemed to wake up! For the explanation, the sun rise around 9.30 a.m here so everything you do around this time is really early for the locals. […]

Perito Moreno

One of the only stable (not getting smaller) glaciers in the world is the Perito Moreno glacier, that happens to be just an hour from where we lodge… (maybe that’s why we’re there…) The other really cool thing about this glacier is that it ends in a lake and it continuously calves (blocks of ice […]
