I’m Charlie and I’ve been in South America for almost 3 years. Most of that time I was teaching English in Buenos Aires, but I recently abandoned the city and travelled up through Peru and Ecuador to Medellín, Colombia. This blog came into being thanks to my friends constantly pestering me about what to do in South America. I would invariably send a long, probably dull, not very informative email. Now I can just send a link!
The site is divided into:
- Places – practical and not-so-practical information and stories about the cities, treks, tours and buses in South America.
- Snapshots – little stories about the people I’ve met, the places I’ve seen, the food I’ve eaten, or any other delicious nuggets worth writing about.
- Tips – useful tips to help you survive.
At the moment the blog’s only about a tenth complete (Ecuador and Colombia don’t yet exist!) but I’ll try to keep on uploading things every so often. I also hope to translate everything into Spanish at some point for my friends in Argentina and Colombia who can’t speak English, but I fear that may take years.
Unless otherwise stated, I took all the photos.
I hope you find something useful. Or at least amusing…
