This article serves as a conclusion for this blog and our awesome year: we’ve been looking to aggregate in one post the most awesome experiences we’ve had as well as our favorites places. Before doing so, here are our general impressions on the trip: First, it was great. The words really can’t describe how incredible […]

Salvador da Bahia

Ultimate stop of our Round The World trip, Salvador da Bahia! 1650km north of Rio, Salvador da Bahia is where the History of Brazil started in the 1501 when Amerigo Vespucci discovered it.

Santiago and Valparaiso

During our connection in Miami between Costa Rica and Chile (I know, it doesn’t make sense), our flight got delayed of a slight 4h30, upgrading our total connection time to about 8 hours (by night – can’t even go chill on Miami Beach). A $40 complementary McDonalds to replace the usual in-flight dinner. That’s about a […]

The Caribbean coast: from Cancún to Tulum

Unlike the title of this article suggests, we decided not to go to Cancún. It is reputated to be an expensive American party place, with no other interest than its clubs: it’s not really what we are looking for. We set off for Playa del Carmen instead. Playa del Carmen Playa del Carmen is actually […]

Palenque, Campeche and Edzná

We rented a car from Mexico ($16 a day… it’s cheaper than taking the bus!), and we’re off for 17 days of road-trip. We originally planned it a bit longer, but we maxed up Thomas’ credit card (the only one we have left), so we had to wait a couple of days to be able […]
