The One About Salar de Uyuni

Bolivia had treated us well but we knew our time there had to end at some point. After a month and a half of volunteering at a small organic farm we decided to stretch our legs and let our hands recover from the calluses. We had the idea of travelling for about 10 days beforeContinue reading “The One About Salar de Uyuni”

The One About Dinosaurs

Since being in Bolivia we have discovered it’s pretty easy to go ‘off the beaten track’. Something that seems so popular for travellers and backpackers. Well, if you want that then come to Bolivia.  We are currently staying on a small farm on the outskirts of the city Cochabamba, it’s a very rural area, aboutContinue reading “The One About Dinosaurs”

The One About Rainbow Mountain

Montana de Colores, or better known as Rainbow Mountain – is an epic place Ty and I had the privilege to see while in the Andes mountains of Peru. Most people go for the Instagram picture, and literally about half an hour after we reached the summit (and had luckily snuck in and got ourContinue reading “The One About Rainbow Mountain”

The One About Machu Picchu

For many, making the trip to the famed “Lost City of The Incas” is a lifelong dream, certainly one for the bucket list. For Emma and I that was exactly the case. There are some attractions that no matter the cost, when the opportunity presents itself all else must be abandoned and every effort toContinue reading “The One About Machu Picchu”

The One About Hiking Up High

Peru is famous for trekking and adventures as it home to some epic landscapes and diverse nature. We were looking forward to doing some hiking here as we had heard all good things, and hiking hadn´t been one of our most common activities while in Central America. I imagined chilly walks up snow capped mountains,Continue reading “The One About Hiking Up High”

The One About Volunteering

We left Ireland in April 2021 on a one way ticket. To be honest this is the only way I’ve ever left for a trip; having a return ticket home means plans had to be made beforehand and even worse, it means you have to leave. We booked our tickets from Dublin to San Jose,Continue reading “The One About Volunteering”

The One Ty Is Starting With

Alrighty, this is my first ever attempt at writing a blog. I cannot say I have ever felt inclined to do something of the sort but over the last few weeks of Emma and I telling our story and then retelling it  -over and over again- it has been brought to our attention that weContinue reading “The One Ty Is Starting With”

The One About Sustainable Living In The Jungle

‘Bath in a creek’ was the first thing that really stood out as “okay, this could be intense”. Living a sustainable lifestyle in the tropical jungle of Costa Rica IS a bit intense, but surprisingly easy. For a total of 7 weeks, Ty and I volunteered and lived on a sustainable cacao and banana farm.Continue reading “The One About Sustainable Living In The Jungle”
