We’ve been listening to our Christmas playlist in the car for about 2 weeks now and we’ve had our first summer snow so it’s time for the real deal. From El Fin del Mundo, as Ushuaia likes to call itself, we’re now crossing the Beagle Channel further South for some trekking and possibly a white … More Holidays in the South
We’ve had some intense first weeks since our car arrived in Buenos Aires. Sadly we’re now saying goodbye to our dear friend, Rob, for quite a while. Now that we have dropped him off at the airport, we want to shift gear and slow down for a bit. First we decide to splurge on a … More Roadtripping to the Land of Fire, or is it Ice?

It was quite the week in Rio de Janeiro and we are looking forward to spending some relaxing time on the beach again. In Angra Dos Reis we’ll be meeting Caue, an old friend of Hannes whom he met travelling in Asia. There we will try to catch a boat to one of the remotest … More A tropical paradise in a tropical storm – Ilha Grande
