So it turns out that coffee begins its life as a little berry. Nobody mentions that when you throwin' back cups of joe at 2 am during the university days. In the past few years, I have come to appreciate the caffeine as my job strongly encourages it. Cappuccino, latte, flat white, espresso macchiato. Take … Continue reading Kahawa. Tanzania.
16. Oct. 2017 Disclaimer: It's a long one! A thousand frank moto-taxi ride and three security checks. Exit stamp. Rwanda, done! We opted for a flight to Tanzania to save three days of bus travel and are headed to Kilimanjaro International. Rwanda was calm, beautiful and somewhere I will definitely appreciate more once I've left. … Continue reading 4000 hills and counting. Rwanda.
Continuing last week's post of my time in India; we continue after I returned from my two weeks in Bhutan. Arriving into a city that I was already vaguely familiar with, made getting to the hostel much less stressful. I would take the Airport Express until the New Delhi station and switch for the Hauz … Continue reading India in 128 Hours. P2.
This evening, my father and I rediscovered our mutual interest in India and everything Bollywood. Eating a Thai Red Curry for dinner with movie song clips playing on Youtube made for interesting dinner conversation. We commented that both of our recent trips were somewhat inspired by various scenes that we have seen in recent-ish Bollywood … Continue reading India in 128 hours.
It suddenly feels real. Not sure why, now, it has changed at all. I realised throughout my last few days at work, that we would be travelling for three months. As I wrote up one of my last posts, about my experience at Machu Pichu, I remember the super tired feeling we had. It was … Continue reading Uganda is Officially a Week Away!

I'm not sure if it's just a trekker-tourist thing but the mountain which is the Base Camp's namesake, Machhapuchhare Mountain, ironically is not allowed to be summited as it is sacred. This morning we spiced things up for … Continue reading Monkeys and Crowds: Machhapuchhare Base Camp.
July 17th -> La Cumbre Epic Bike Ride Today 🙂 We rode up to Cuchi Corral- a 'famed' paragliding spot in Cordoba Province. My boyfriend had originally planned to go but the cost was still AR$600- even after we rode to the top! Although it was only about 10km- the last hill was quite tough! … Continue reading 2 – Wheeled Escapades: Cuchi Corral
The adventures of packing. The smallest detail which can make or break a trip. That small charger you forgot, or that extra pair of shoes you never needed. We've all been there. I know each time I go on a trip I play a small game of tetris with my backpack, hoping to make the … Continue reading Packing Tips: My Must Have Items
Bhutan 2017 I always think it's interesting to look back to the moment when I choose a new country to visit. With Bhutan, I remember vividly the moment I read about the Druk Path Trek, and discovered trekking options in the eastern Himalayas. It was rainy September day, and I was waiting excitedly for our … Continue reading Himalayas 2.0
We started the day high in the clouds. We couldn't see more than 50m around us, only taking in the windy road and sheer rock faces as inspiration for our imagination.The morning sun glistened against the rocks along the road, sunshine trying to push through the damp. At 4700m we could have been anywhere in … Continue reading 2-Wheeled Escapades: Bolivia’s Death Road and Cocaine.
