The final bus trip of our journey to date was possibly the best. A magical trip across the Andes from Mendoza in Argentina through to Santiago in Chile was truly spectacular. Didnt feel like a bus ride at all. Posted by chuddfi in And we are off... | Sep 2, 2012

- San Pedro de Atacama
After our wonderful few days travelling 4x4 through the Salar de Yuyuni we crossed the border and landed in the desert town of San Pedro de Atacama, Chile. The little dirt roads were aligned with mud-brick shops, bars and restaurants Posted by chuddfi in And we are off... | Aug 12, 2012

Pretty exciting to be heading this far south, and people are considering aplitting away from the group and heading to Posted by neekspencer in Dom takes on the Americas! | Aug 1, 2012
- Our long, unforgettable days on Moose begin...I travelled with Dave in the front seat for a while which was great, I has excellent views and we chatted for hours! I won’t go into details about Rachel’s vomit story, I guess it’s just for me to remember Posted by neekspencer in Dom takes on the Americas! | Aug 1, 2012

The bus to Pichilemu was not as easy as we thought! There are not any direct buses so they kick you off outside a town called San Fernando at 3am on the motorway and point you in the general direction Posted by Lulu-Bug in Loz and Lulu's big World Adventure | Jul 8, 2012
