Cuzco, A Must-Go Place

It was hard for me to believe it was December. I am sure all the backpackers will agree that time flies especially when you’re on the road. After taking a rest last night to acclimatise, I went out to explore this city. It was another small city but it was very attractive. I loved the … Continue reading Cuzco, A Must-Go Place

I Really Like Cuenca

I met another backpacker in my hostel in Cuenca. We decided to walk around the city. I didn’t write down many details in my journal but as far as I remember, we took a bus to the lookout as both of us wanted to go there. You can find handicrafts here. Cuenca was really a … Continue reading I Really Like Cuenca

A Hike At Rio Verde, Baños

Cloudy. Occasional rain. I think that was what the weather was like at that time of the year. I decided to do some hiking at Rio Verde to see the waterfall which was a bit far from the Baños town centre so I took a bus which cost nearly nothing. On my way to Rio … Continue reading A Hike At Rio Verde, Baños

Terrible Bus Trip And Beautiful Baños

I woke up very early for the notorious bus ride to Chugchilan. The ecolodge called the trip ‘an adventure by itself’. Travelling in South America by bus is more common than by trains because buses are faster. I didn’t believe it too at first. Anyway, my plan was to stay at an ecolodge there. It'd … Continue reading Terrible Bus Trip And Beautiful Baños

The Much-Anticipated Galápagos

It was indeed a much-anticipated trip but the nightmare came on my first day on the boat - my period came so I couldn’t go snorkelling. But, I had an idea. I remembered when I was in Fiji, I faced the same problem. How did I solve it? Not tampons. I got on a smaller … Continue reading The Much-Anticipated Galápagos

First Stop in South America – Ecuador

My first stop was supposed to be Peru and I even arranged a one-week Spanish lesson in Arequipa. However, I missed my flight so I took a plane to Ecuador instead. That was the earliest flight I could get. Ecuador, I’d say, was probably the hardest for me to travel around. I knew no Spanish, … Continue reading First Stop in South America – Ecuador

Sandy, I Will Remember You

After I quit my job, I started doing some research. In fact, when I was in the four-wheel drive in Mongolia, I had decided to go to South America despite the fact that I didn’t know any Spanish word including ‘Hola!’ The couple also said I didn’t need to speak perfect or fluent Spanish to … Continue reading Sandy, I Will Remember You

The Diverse Gobi Desert

I woke up in my tent. The couple was talking and I thought to myself, ‘nah, let me lie in this comfortable tent for a little while longer and let the couple spend sometime with each other. Don’t want to be the third wheel.’ So I stayed in my sleeping bag and closed my eyes … Continue reading The Diverse Gobi Desert

The Vast And Impressive Gobi Desert Day 1
