SOUTH america



South America was the start of my backpacking career and sparked the wanderlust for me. Rich in natural beauty as well as cosmopolitan cites and culture, South America has something for everyone. The iconic Machu PIcchu, Iguazu Falls and Christ the Redeemer are must-see's but there's so much more to see and do if you have the time to really see South America. The diversity of the people as you move from the cities to the country and across borders will amaze you. From Rio where the women strut the beaches in thong bikinis, the traditional farming people of Peru in their al Paca through to the native Uros people living on floating islands of Lake Titicaca. You'll leave South America with a taste for it, from the colourful, electric atmosphere of Carnaval, clubs and football games to the feel of the soft Iguazu spray on your face, and if you hadn't already you'll feel the bite of the travel bug.

Day 2 I snorkelled with whale sharks, something I’d dreamt of for years so I was pumped and hopeful about my chances of also seeing manta rays.

I’d read about Manta Bowl, a cleaning station for manta rays, that can be reached on...

Putting your mask beneath the surface and coming face to face with the biggest fish in the ocean is a surreal, electric experience. The sheer size of whale sharks should be daunting but these majestic creatures quickly put you at ease as they slowly, elegantly glide through the water beneath you.

7107 islands make up The Philippines but it was the crystal clear azure waters and exploring what lies beneath that drew me there. 3...

So many times I've tried and failed to visit the famous Figure 8 pools, I must have done every other walk in the National Park before I actually arrived at a suitable time to visit Figure 8!  

The rock platform that houses the pools is only visible and safe to visit at low tide which for a good part of the year is super early or late and usually just for a window of a few hours meaning you have to time your trip correctly.
