Crossing the Border


8 Hours in a Camioneta

So I thought I could save time and money by taking a van from Mendoza to Santiago, instead of one of the big, plush tourbuses.

But it still took a full 8 hours, and I probably only saved $10. Ah, well. The scenery was lovely, and then van was surprisingly comfortable.

Even if customs took, like, 3 hours. No joke. It was worth it.

Welcome to Chile.

Couch Surfing 101


I Made It!

After over an hour sitting on the runway in Salt Lake, a 3 hour flight, a 2 hour layover in Houston, a 10 hour FREEZING and stiff neck-inducing flight, an hours bus ride, missed connections and several frantic locutorio/couchsurfing/skype communications…I’m here. Safe with my couchsurfing host, Jose, in his apartment.

…in Buenos Aires.

Because, you know, this is what I do. Getting to know the Big World, one random, crazy adventure at a time.
