South America by selfies

This is kind of an update, but also a peek into what’s to come. You see, we aren’t actually in South America anymore. We’re still blogging about South America because there’s so much more to share, but our trip came to an end late last year. In the time since then, we’ve relocated to Boston and have been busy with all that that entails (let me tell you, a lot of paperwork!).

To celebrate the amazing 675 days that we spent strolling around South America, here are some photos. Selfies, in fact. It’s not an exhaustive record of our trip because we rarely took photos of each other, let alone selfies, but we did take some and they remind me of the great times we had. So from Brazil to Costa Rica, over 38,540km, this was our journey.

Getting wet at Iguazu Falls.

Sunrise at 4,327m at El Tatio geyser field in northern Chile. Cold, cold, cold!

Pausing to take a break while walking slowly in the high altitude at Laguna Colorada, Bolivia.

Gran Poder with friendsHaving fun at the Gran Poder in La Paz. We’d just eaten anticuchos and were about to tuck into a sandwich de Chola.

Playing dress-up in Chocolate Caliente in La Paz. I think every restaurant should include wigs.

Drying off after swimming with pink dolphins in Rurrenabaque, Bolivia. What you can’t see, and what I didn’t feel at the time, are the hundreds of mosquitoes biting my back!

Enjoying the Incan agricultural terraces at Maras in the Sacred Valley, Peru.

Hiking in Ollantaytambo, Sacred Valley, Peru.

Taking advantage of the therapeutic mud at Agua Blanca village, near Puerto Lopes in Ecuador.

Saying farewell to the San Blas islands in Panama before heading to the mainland after five days on a sailboat (and there’s a great story about this that involves the US Coast Guard. Eventually I’ll get round to telling it).
