Beyond Uyuni to Potosi

At the foot of the Cerro de Potosí (referred to as the Cerro Rico or rich mountain) lies Potosi. There's not too much to be said about the small town of Potosi. The basis of its existence, due to the silver mine, founded in 1545, producing around 60% of the worlds silver in the latter... Continue Reading →

Uyuni

The temperature was far more paletable this morning (still cold af). During my morning run, the sun rose, illuminating cactus covered mountains and surrounding saltscapes. Packed and onwards to Uyuni, we drive out of the dust, onto an ocean of white... a glistening blanket of salt encrusted diamonds, as far as the eye can see.... Continue Reading →

San Pedro de Atacama

By local bus, it takes a full day of driving to get from Salta to San Pedro De Atacama. Hours of window watching, navigating the winding roads, trailing through the most amazing landscapes. Sweeping mountains of terracotta, green shrubs and golden tufts of grass, boulders, cactus, wild llamas and icy peaks. Getting to the Chilean... Continue Reading →

Argentina – Buenos Aires to Salta

Mandarin trees along some roads and wrought iron lamp posts give an old world feel. Other than taking day trips, there isn't... Continue Reading →

Hot Chile Woman

Chile (pronounced Chill aye), is the first stop in my South American adventure. South America is all about lines... long lines, of people, at immigration. If you're Australian, before entering into Chile, be prepared to fork out $117USD. Yep, a moderate, below the belt love tap, applicable only to Australians, however, payment must be made...

Champagne. Let it flow.

6 May I’m in the city of love, and I ain’t got none. What I do have, is a never ending supply of pastries. Glorious, carb loaded, buttery (and bad news for my once lean figure), pastries. Oh my, France, you temptress. Paris is easy to get overwhelmed by. Museums, monuments, architecture, museums, Moulin Rouge.... Continue Reading →

Oui Paris

5 May Today, I do not miss my flight! The flight from London to Paris, (despite costing me £278/ $523 AUD after rebooking), is the shortest flight I’ve ever taken... tbh, deliberating on what hotel to book and where to go first took longer than the flight... As if it was a difficult decision on... Continue Reading →
