Hola lush people. We hope you all had a stunning xmas and dirty new year? Lordy, more than a month without a blog entry! We could say we have been really busy but the truth is our time has been taken up with beach, sun and lazy filled. Right to the top and over flowing. Our goodbye to El Salavdor took us on a two day coach trip uo to Mexico, Cancun. A glizty beach side resort were we meet Fleur for festiveness. Xmas dinner on the bay and then chilling out on the beach, very lush but no Eastenders xmas spesh! After a week we headed off to Isle de Cozemel and for beach. We did some amazing snorkelling. Unfortunelty dont have any pictures but we saw a load of fish. Rainbow coloured, white with ... read more

There have been camp elements of our day that we would like to share with you... We left the route of flowers in Western El Salvador, which was quite sad. People have been overwhelming friendly to us. It is a beautiful area with cute cobbled towns, volcano’s, waterfalls, wild flowers and lush mini cloud forest scenery. We were bound towards San Salvador taking two buses and the first soon turned into the gay disco bus. The driver was playing a High N-RG mix tape from the mid 80´s and was booming for all and some people even had a sing along. I and Andy included and in our element. Here is the track listing to give you an idea. It was a treat to be listening to cheese while winding up and down cloud forest hills. ... read more

Hello me lovers, we hope all is well in your worlds... Some thing's we have done in the last few weeks: 1. A pleasant detour into El Salvador: We weren't planning on coming to El Salvador but we are so glad we did. A beautiful country (well what we have seen so far) and people are so friendly and helpful. After spending 3 days in the capital San Salvador we decided liked it. It was big, buzzy and friendly and surrounded by mini mountains. We are now in a chilled out town in the west, boosting a lovely little square and church, friendly people, old men waving to us on the streets, strangers in cafes saying Buenos Dais and people being nice to each other. We have been exploring the area known as “The route of ... read more

The title explains our movements and actions from the last few weeks. We send our love to you all and hope all is fine in your worlds. Although we moved from one area of the continent to another we are still keeping it Latino. Ricki Martin once said he was "Living the viva loca". Sometimes we are and for the rest it's bed by 10pm with a book. Over 3 weeks have passed with 3 countries thrown in. Our eyes have seen a million things and our stomach's digested much food and our bellies have properly grown a few more inches. Once upon a time we were in Peru and after Cuzco we headed to Puerto Maldonado. A buzzy little town in the depths of deepest Peru, alas we did not see Paddington bear. Sitting on ... read more

Hola lovely people... Hope all is well and life is grand? So what have we been up to...a little excursion into Bolivia and now we are in Cuzco, Peru. We had a wildlife fest on the river Beni, in Bolivian Amazon Basin. A brillant few days of sunshine, sailing up the river and spotting seeing one of the cuddley and peaceful animals on earth, the humble Capabara. Awwwwwwwwww how cute and even cuter, Andy getting all excited. Story is that he saw some in Cricket St Thomas about 15 years ago and has loved them ever since. So seeing 100's in the wild was a bit of a rush. It must have been breeding season, cause there were lots of cute little babers. People were nice on the tour, apart from wanting to kill Miss Pony ... read more

The sun is shining and we have had another lush couple of weeks. We hope all is well in Blighty, Oz, Germany and other places. At the moment we are getting high most days in Peru. Hitting high heights and both of us are getting a little breathless and sick (but not enough for things to go tits up). So, what has life entailed in the last few weeks? We left Paracas for a very chilled day in Huacachina. A little Oasis village of about 200 people and 25 hotels! Nested inside towering sand dunes. After a slighty scary ride on a dune buggy we got to surf down one of the mama's. A good rush, Andy had to go first cause I am a big scary pants... Next stop Nazca, a lush town that we ... read more

Hola mi amigo's. Un grande como esta's para tu! Oh dear, and the grammar is bad! At least people are having a laugh thanks to our broken Spanish. Well. alot has happended in 10 days or so... We have just spent 3 lush days in Lima (Dubbed as the Captial of Kings but it should be renamed the captail of Casinos). Suprisingly nice. Everyone we meet said Lima is a shitehole get out asap, thats enough to make me stay. Our hotel is in a uber posh area called Mirafoles, very chilled sea side spot. Lima has (and still going) gone through much regeneation in the last few years. Went to an exhibition of before and after shots. Roads, parks, poor areas and the centre have been given a make over and its very impressive. The ... read more

Hola mi amigos. Hope all is well with you all... Sorry for lack of blogness in the last few weeks, no excuse, apart from having lots of fun. We miss you all. We have left Buenos Aires (which is sad) and now are in Puerto Madryn, about 1000 miles from Bs As. It´s nice to be near the sea. Puerto Madryn is a little seaside town (Think Western Super Mare!). We have come here to see Right Whales, Killer Whales, Elephant seals and Sea Lions. Our first few hours here we went for a walk and about 10 Right Whales were breast feeding in the bay. We were about 30 meteres from them. It was very cute seeing Andy getting Excited like a 10 year old. They are pretty amazing mammals. We have been out on ... read more

Hola Mi Amgos. Como estas? We hope you are well and funky! We have been in the city of good air (not true because of lots of cars and buses), Buenos Aries for about a week. Our flat is amazing, In a area called San Telmo (funky shops, markets and people!). We are on a square called Plaza Derrago. On Sunday´s there is a massive antique market. Lots of shiny things, tango in the plaza and music everywhere. Although the market started after the economy crash in 2001 with everyone selling their stuff to live. Now it´s a famous landmark for both locals and tourists. The city is amazing. Buzzy, friendly, quite gay, trendy, stylish and lovely architecture. I have seen the most wonderful shoes here! There is music everywhere. On one of the main shopping ... read more
