Guaranda I woke up and found a bus from Alausi to Guaranda, the city was a lot bigger then I expected and it was bustling. I was excited to experience my first dose of Andean rural life. I got dropped off in the city centre and then I walked around to find a place to stay. There were loads of...

Strasbourg Alsace runs from East to West and swept in its path is Strasbourg, a beautiful city close to the border of Germany. This region has a unique fusion of German and French culture and people are really warm and friendly. Strasbourg was calling! Just looking at photos of it bewitched me and wondering through the streets with all their...
best pizza in sardinia
  Had this place not been announced as 'the best pizza in Sardinia' by a local shop owner, we would have probably never thought to go in Il Porcile Pizzeria. Hidden in the backstreets of Cagliari, this little pizzeria leaves a lot to be desired when you first lay your eyes on it. It looks rundown and pretty dimly lit...

  Despite the fact that I had been acclimatising to the altitude in Huaraz for 4 days I still wasn't coping very well with the 3052m altitude. I was beginning to wonder if I would be able to do the Laguna 69 trek. It felt like someone was squeezing my head, the same pressure you feel when you dive into...
Plitvice Lakes, Croatia
Plitvice Lakes National Park has been on my bucket list since I spotted some stunning photos of it on Pinterest. It has 16 terraced lakes which flow as waterfalls into a huge limestone canyon. Plitvice Lakes from Zadar I booked an early morning bus from Zadar's main bus station to Plitvice Lakes. It was around 100 Kuna for a return and...
Carolines Lodging Huaraz
Carolines Lodging Huaraz I booked the annex at Carolines Lodging which is next door to the hostel. It is quieter and has only private rooms, every room is ensuite and has hot water around the clock. It is ideal if you want to get down to some work, I wanted to focus on some writing. There was a communal area with a...
Alausi
The Journey My trip to Alausi was probably the most impulsive of my adventures in South America. While sitting at a bus station I read in a guide book about The Devils Nose train journey. It was said to be the most scenic but dangerous train ride on earth. I heard a driver shouting for passengers to Alausi and I thought it was...
