South America » Ecuador » Galápagos March 9th 2012

Where to start...we actually booked our trip from home, we got a good deal but as it turns out, we could have gotten an even better deal. But that doesnt matter at all because we would have payed double for the shit we saw and experienced!!! We did a four day tour, on a sweet boat called the Galaven. We thought we would end up on some geriatric cruise for seniors (a bunch of silver foxes complete with head-to-toe khaki and gumby hats) but we lucked out and had an awesome group (minus the a-hole Frenchies who were too good for anyone) which always makes a tour better. After landing in the airport on Galapagos, we basically started right away. We went straight to our boat. Being only a four day tour, we were worried about ... read more

South America » Ecuador » West » Guayaquil February 26th 2012

Hola... Quito > Tena > Banos > Riobamba > Guayaquil So far Ecuador has far exceeded any expectations we might have had about the country. The people are super chill and go out of their way to help, always with a smile, and the landscape is ridiculously beautiful, I have never seen a country this green. But to start off....the plane ride from HELL!!!!!! So Van to Houston was no big deal, minor layover in Texas, then we get on the plane to Quito. All seems OK for the first minute, then the devil baby from hell in the seat right behind us starts to let loose. Teri and I look at each other thinkin just our luck, hopefully she (satan's spawn) will sleep. NOT. Imagine a consistent baby cry for the whole flight. On a ... read more

Our latest travels.... We started our vacation with a mini road trip to Seattle and spent the day there. We found the single greatest restaurant of all time called the Crab Pot where they just dump a huge pile of seafood on a paper covered picnic table in front of you, and then all bibbed-up, you just dive in with your hands and wooden mallot and fill your bellies with the best steamed seafod EVER. After that, we went to the airport and started hitting the sauce. Nicley buzzed we boarded the plane to Roatan. Although shorter by far than most of our adventures, the time we spent in Honduras' Bay Islands was defintely sufficient to press the reset button fully. We spent the majority of our time in Roatan, the largest island in the Bay ... read more

Asia » Thailand » South-West Thailand » Ko Tao March 27th 2010

Ko Lanta Phuket Ko Phi Phi Ao Nang Railay Ko Pha Ngan Ko Tao Bangkok Ask yourself this...When was the last time you made it a point in your day, in fact the most important "to do" of your day, to find a good spot to watch the sunset? Probably never, or, cant remember the last time. Well thats travel, and everyone who has travelled knows the feeling. As a friend said, those moments when you are sitting in the sand watching the sun go down, you're not thinking about anything, you don't need anything, you are just sitting there, energizing your life and soaking up the real reason why we live. There is no such thing as a "travel bug", it is simply an addiction to living free!! ... read more

Asia March 5th 2010

Osaka - Nagoya - Tokyo - Bangkok - Ko Chang - Bangkok - Trang - Ko Ngai - Ko Lanta Well, where to start... We will finish Japan off I guess...we went down to Osaka to meet up with some freinds, the beers started flowing early...we visited the Osaka Aquarium, supposedly one of the best in the world, it was OK, the whale sharks and manta rays were cool though, but in my mind, you just cant build a tank large enough for a whale shark!!! The night we had in Osaka was nothing but FUN!!! Osaka is nuts at night, people everywhere and it is really a sight to see for sure. After a few hours of takin down many beers, we found our selves, much to Teri's delight, at an all you can drink ... read more

Asia » Japan » Nagano February 20th 2010

Well we made it safe and sound...Japan is crazy for sure. This place is constantly buzzing and so far it has been a pretty cool experience. We arrived in Tokyo, and feeling jet lagged had to make it to Nagoya (4 hours by train) to go find Ally and Tim, really good friends who live here and teach english. The trip, although tiring, was relatively painless. Getting around here is a hell of a lot easier than anticipated. After finding Ally, we celebrated by consuming many many beers... The next day was slightly painful, but we set out for a day trip to Nagano to go and see my Snow Monkeys. A group of about 200 Japanese Macaques who live in and around the thermal baths in a little town called Yudanaka. Well, we got to ... read more

Hola, Will keep this short and will tell the story The path...from the Corn Islands to San Juan de Sur and Playa Maderas in Nicaragua, then to Costa Rica at Montezuma, Malpais, Quepos, Manuel Antonio, San Jose, Cahuita, then to Panama where we are now in Bocas del Toro having a very hard time leaving... As the title says, we have been about as lazy as two people can get. In fact trying to think of what to write is even difficult cause we have been the laziest blobs ever, lovin every minute of it. San Juan and Playa Maderas were nice, surfed a bit, lounged a lot. After that we bused it down to Montezuma and Malpais, both places really just layed on the beach, go figure. Malpais however, a favorite of mine last ... read more

Finally we blog...cant believe its been a month already...1 to go The path so far...Managua / Pochomil / Granada / Laguna de Apoyo / Isla de Ometepe / Corn Islands Managua, nothing to say except that it sucks, overpriced and none to pleasant. We whisked off to Pochomil right away, a small beach town on the Pacific. Basically had the whole beach to ourselves, a definite perk of travelling in the off season. Stayed for a couple of days then some Nica gangster fags decided to get the room beside us and be obnoxious, the newly arrived bad vibe sent us packing. Off to Granada which is a super chill little Spanish Colonial gem in the heart of country. Wicked architecture, restaurants and dam good espresso...when you find good coffee when your away you take full ... read more

South America » Peru » Lima » Lima » Miraflores July 24th 2007

Well shit, what to say... First off we cant believe its over already, seems like we just got here...needless to say this place is absolutely fuckin amazing...every thing we did and everything we saw was completely different from the last...i think it was the absolute diversity of things that made the trip so amazing, diversity of beautiful landscapes, warm people, a totally different feeling in every country we traveled to... There are however definate highlights that can not be forgotten...firsty, we loved bolivia...we spent a whole month there and went from living in the jungle in the Amazon River Basin, to travelling in a 4x4 for four days through the retardedly cold altiplano and saltfields, to the psycho crazy city of La Paz, to horse back riding where butch Cassidy and that other guy got ... read more

South America » Peru » Lima » Lima » Miraflores July 2nd 2007

To all...this is short and sweet... Its been a journey to get where we are now...and we apologize for not writing in a while...but we have been drunk pretty much every night since the last blog... we are back in Lima, much as we said we were glad to leave Peru, we are so happy to be back...when you are here, the recogintion of the fact that you are in a different place is very evident...Argentina was great, but the comforts of home were everywhere and available...this place is different...its more real...and, and i stress and,...we have zero money and peru is so much cheaper... so, how we got here...funny ...with no money, our only option was bus from BA argentina...turns out our bus was this little piece of crap. We last minute decided ... read more
