machu pichu

Machu Pichu is probably the most impressive place i’ve ever been to. An ancient city in the clouds, sitting on the top of a mountain, it lay undiscovered until 1911. The view was so nice, I had to see it twice! Both of my trips to South America included a visit to this magical city. My […] more…

buenos aires + argentina

My two trips to South America couldn’t be more different. Both of these trips had me arrive in Buenos Aires at some point during my travels. These two trips were 13 years apart, so the contrast between the two couldn’t be more different. I came once as a 22-year old backpacker in 2005, and just […] more…

I have crossed paths with Buenos Aires and Montevideo twice now. Their close proximity to each other makes it a little bit inevitable that you will do the same.
