Aeromexico Flight 454 from Havana, Cuba lands in Mexico City, Mexico at 8:20 am on June 18th. Our connection flight back to Medellin, Colombia leaves in 11 hours. Just outside of the airport the biggest city in the american continent awaits. Over 20 million people live in Mexico city (including the metropolitan area), so traffic gets a bit hectic sometimes.

Waterfalls, jungles, beaches, and the Andes. Where else but the middle of the world? Check out some highlights from the 3 weeks we spent in beautiful Ecuador: Continue Reading “Video | Ecuador: Quito, Guayaquil, Montañita, Baños, Puyo”
Cuban beaches, some of the best beaches in the world. We miss them. We have put together a few clips from our visit to Playas del Este in Havana, Playa Ancón in Trinidad and Varadero:
Cuba is a great place to visit. Probably not the best one for a remote worker, but it has everything you need for a short vacation: hot weather, white-sand beaches, crystal clear waters, rich architecture, nice people and (almost) complete isolation from the outside world. In this article, we gathered some tips and things you should know that will help you enjoy the island from day one:
It has been almost a month since our last update, but the truth is that we have been quite busy and the internet connection has not been the best. Most recently, we spent a few weeks visiting Peru, and we loved it. We focused our visit on Cusco, Machu Picchu, Arequipa, and Mancora. Three very different destinations that are a good representation of the diversity of this country. Here’s a summary of our visit and our main recommendations:
We are currently one country down in our two-month, six-country trip. Due to its proximity to Chile, Bolivia was our first stop and also (probably) our shortest, as we spent a total of five days there.
Latin America In Two Months. Sky high Andean cities, Caribbean beaches, rainforest villages, and more hours traveling by bus than I care to count. We’ve been ticking off the days for months now, and it’s finally almost here. On April 29th we will start our two month adventure through Latin America. To be fair, we are really only visiting six countries in Latin America, which is still probably a lot for two months, but we’re going for it. Starting as far south as Santiago, Chile (where we are currently living) and heading north until we reach Havana, Cuba. We’ll be sharing updates and pictures along the way here, so be sure to check back to see what we’re up to. But before it all starts, here is our (very) rough itinerary, plans, and expectations for the next two months.
Pichilemu is about a 3 1/2 hour bus ride southwest of Santiago and is most famous for its world class surfing. If you’re in Chile and surf, want to learn, or just like watching, you’ll need to make a stop in Pichilemu. It’s an easy place to get stuck in with its beaches, seafood, and small coastal town vibe, but you can easily experience all Pichilemu has to offer in just two or three days if that’s all the time you have. We went for a weekend and managed to hit up all the must-see’s, do’s, and eat’s. Here are a few pointers to get the most out of your time in Pichilemu. Continue Reading “Pichilemu For The Weekend”
Buenos Aires has been the best discovery so far from my year living in South America. And the best part is that it takes me less than two hours to get there from Santiago, Chile. And even with that, I have been there less times than I would like to. Continue Reading “Buenos Aires Is Just As I Expected It To Be”
When I first came to Chile about a year ago, there was little I really knew about the country. Upon doing a bit of research I learned that it is an isolated country with a hugely varied landscape. Now I realize that this is a description that could be applied to many places, but with Patagonia in the south, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Andes to the east, and a desert in the north, I came to see that this isolation really was next level.
