After 10 weeks in South America we flew onto the African continent with 5 National Parks on our itinerary and very little idea of what to expect in between. Between talking to other travelers, pouring over our digi...

After 10 weeks of riding dubious collectivos, hiking perilous cliffside trails and pitching our tent everywhere from under the desert sun to in pouring snow,...

The Dientes Circuit 

Situated at the far tip of the South American continent, farther south than Tierra Del Fuego, harder to get to than the Galapagos, and infinitely wilder than any park we had been to yet, the circuit hike around the Dientes de Navarino hike ranks hig...

As we wound our way south down the spine of the Andes and towards the Southern terminus of the continent we ended up stopping in the small Chilean town of Punta Arenas.

When we told people that we were going to be heading up Machu Piccu for this trip, we usually got one of two reactions: people who had NOT been there expressed how it was also a dream of theirs to visit the mountaintop Inca...

 Iguana Further

The plane's captain came over the loudspeaker and announced that the flight crew would be coming through shortly to fumigate our carry-on luggage for insects. Several minutes later, the stewardesses came down the aisle waving aerosol cans of bug spray as...
