Lovely meet up, indeed!
Thanks Michelle, it was so amazing to meet a fellow Travelblogger and find Brendan as fun as his blogs. Hopefully, I'll get to meet more from our wonderful community. And I so agree that we were lucky that Pachamama felt our happy smiles were offering enough. Here's to Earth Goddesses everywhere!

I love your blog. The only countries I have visited in South America are Venezuela, Columbia and Guyana. I am most intrigued by Brazil in particular but all of that continent is on my list for the future. I love your style so I will subscribe to your blog.

Thanks Roger
I'm glad you like my style--thanks for the kind words. I love South America and will be heading up to your haunts in the north in a year or so. Hope you get to Brazil soon--it was fantastic! Happy travels!
