“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
Travelling is something that I’ve always loved to do. Over the last 20 years I’ve been lucky enough to travel to over 50 countries and all 7 continents. I’ve lived in many of these countries and volunteered at animals shelters as I’ve travelled. Come explore with me . . .
I’ve been on the road since May 2016 & I’ve run into some travel troubles. None were life threatening but they did cause a LOT of frustration at the time.
Our morning started with a zodiac adventure in Cierva Cove. What none of us knew was that today was to be a very special day indeed.
Guadalajara is Mexico’s 2nd largest city & it has a population of 5 million which is more than the whole of New Zealand! I explored the historic center of Guadalajara.
My mission as I travel throughout Latin America is to volunteer with rescue animals in each country that I visit. The Ranch Dog Shelter is the second shelter I’ve volunteered at in Mexico and it was a fantastic shelter to be at.
Ajijic is a small town that sits on the shores of Lake Chapala, which is the largest lake in all of Mexico! I’d been lucky enough to secure a house sit for the month of May looking after Will & Grace (love those names!), the dogs, and Angus the cat.
We left Port Lockroy in the early hours to make our way up to the Lemaire Channel. This is an icy part of the world and we’re not sure if we’ll make it to our next destination of Port Charcot as the ship hadn’t made it so far South this season.
Travellers usually come to Ushuaia, also known as The End Of The World, for two reasons. They’re either going hiking in Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego or they’re off to Antarctica. I was fortunate enough to be heading to Antarctica!
Think Buenos Aires and you picture tango dancers in the street and large steaks. I spent 2 months in Buenos Aires while I was exploring Argentina and I found the good, the bad and the ugly.
