South America – The extra bits

Standard
South America – The extra bits

We’ve shown a fair few videos of South America now; the food, the Inca Trail, the Colca Canyon trek etc, but we’ve done so much that not everything can have its own video. This video shows loads – from various treks in Peru, horse riding in Bolivia and Argentina, dinosaur tracks, bus boats, carnival and dodgy showers in Bolivia, sand boarding in chile and the Uros floating islands in Peru. There’s even a shot of me hijacking a boat whilst the real ‘captain’ wasn’t looking…. Read the rest of this entry

Sozzled bike riding in Argentina!

Sozzled bike riding in Argentina!

Bike riding through the vineyards of Maipu sounds a lot more glamorous and sophisticated than drunkly gasping for breath whilst trying to stay on a bike, but honestly both apply to wine tasting in Maipu.

And I think this video show that quite well. The scenery, the elegant first few glasses, the drunken scream for steak and the fishy ramblings of a madman. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry

Eating Bolivia and Chile

Eating Bolivia and Chile

The amount of times I’ve watched ‘I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here’ I tell you. Twice, I think. And boy what times I had! Celebrities climbing over things, jumping out of planes and sleeping in a jungle. And everytime I watched someone complain I got frustrated! I would love to climb over things, jump out of planes and sleep in the jungle!

But then I’d watch them eat witchedygrubs. And then I’d find myself less jealous… Read the rest of this entry

The beauty that is South East Bolivia – The Uyuni salt flats tour

The south east of Bolivia is probably the most beautiful natural place I’ve ever seen. It seemed like every two minutes the scenery changed to another stunning vast landscape. From volcanoes to pink lakes, from geysers to the largest salt flats in the world, it’s all breathtaking. So here I try to sum up just some of the hugely diverse landscapes we experienced, all to one of the best Metallica songs of all time! Read the rest of this entry

The perfect setting to propose… (if you like spiders and the dark)

The perfect setting to propose… (if you like spiders and the dark)

Well in the Amazon we were pretty busy, what with proposing and all. But in our spare time (the time not spent swooning and being all romantic) we filmed this video of stick insects, monkeys and spiders… lovely romantic spiders. Read the rest of this entry

Gemma’s spot (or trekking the Colca Canyon)

Gemma’s spot (or trekking the Colca Canyon)

I really wanted to document our trek of the Colca Canyon like a grown up. But Gemma had a spot, and I had a camera.

I’m such a child… Read the rest of this entry

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

When we started the Inca Trail we were so keen to film the whole thing. We were chatty, excited and full of beans, even though Gemma was suffering with the after affects of altitude sickness. Then we all got sick, the trek got harder and our skin became dirtier. I feel the video reflects this nicely… Read the rest of this entry

Let’s take a minute…

Let’s take a minute…

Riverkids NGO charity deserves a minute of your time. Maybe even 3 and a half minutes.

Which is why I’ve decided to shorten the video I made for them from 5 minutes to 3 and a half for those of you on a time budget. All I ask is that you use the extra minute and a half finding out how to volunteer, how to donate, or simply learning about their plight here: http://www.riverkidsproject.org/ Read the rest of this entry
