  • 100% wetSo you would have thought we would be use to the early starts by now, but nope we still hated rolling out of bed in the early hours to catch our next flight. But a few hours later we had Posted by sdyzart in BrimItOn Tour | Mar 6, 2019

  • Mountains, Wine and MudOur bus from Santiago to Mendoza was going to take about 8 hours, so to save time and the cost of a nights accommodation I booked us on another night bus. In hindsight what I completely forgot was that we Posted by sdyzart in BrimItOn Tour | Feb 28, 2019
  • Colourful ValpoReturning back to Santiago we were excited to be able to meet up with Dries, who was on our 21 day tour through Peru. I convinced the boys that we should take the bus for 1.5 hours over to the Posted by sdyzart in BrimItOn Tour | Feb 26, 2019

  • Salty GoodnessOur bus arrived into Uyuni earlier than expected…we had to get off the bus at 5.30am and it was bloody freezing! Luckily we were met from the bus and taken to a local restaurant for some breakfast. 2 hours later Posted by sdyzart in BrimItOn Tour | Feb 18, 2019
  • Tragedy in La PazWe arrived into La Paz around 3pm and found the border crossing was suprisingly easy. The security check was blasé, they asked if we had fruit, patted our bags and then sent us on our way. Whilst on route to Posted by sdyzart in BrimItOn Tour | Feb 17, 2019

  • Bogota 2018 - Colombia==Elevation== Bogota sits around 8,500 of elevation, and we got up over 10,000 feet with some hiking in the surrounding countryside.

  • Medellin 2018 - Colombia==Modern== Known as the City of Eternal Spring. That was true when we were there, with mostly clear skies and an average of 80 during the day.

  • Viva ChileDon't get me wrong, Bolivia was great, but it was also cold. Really cold. As in -5°C, with the wind feeling as though it's tearing your face off. Imagine our relief, then, as a van took us across the border into Posted by kristian23 in The Globetrotting Graduates | May 19, 2015
