La palette du nord-ouest argentin Humahuaca qui couronne notre escale dans le Nord-Ouest argentin, est sans doute l’une des bombes de la Ruta 40. Les couches de pierres parfaitement distinctes offrent un trésor géologique qu’il faut voir pour croire – Cette curiosité est enchanteresse. La sédimentation et les années suivent une véritable partition de musique, … Continue reading The North West Argentinian colour palette
Romance montagnarde Encore aujourd’hui il n’est pas rare, dans la paisible oasis de San Pedro de Atacama, de croiser un chilien partager son verre de vin avec la Pachamama et lui verser trois gouttes. La terre-mère est une figure vivante et essentielle de la culture Andine. Elle est à l’origine de tout. Les Atacamènes considéraient … Continue reading Volcanos romance
Les couleurs du Brésil Notre voyage commence avec le Brésil, un pays peut être pas si rouge finalement, mais vert et bleu, dont nous croyons désormais comprendre le drapeau.

Yes, we did that, we intentionnaly missed the world famous Inca Ruins. It comes as quite a shock to most people we meet when we tell them we didn’t go to Machu Picchu.

Anyways we wouldn’t fool ourselves… we … Continue reading The Peruvian Amazon forest, just like in a dream…
Cotopaxi is a big (5 897 meters high) shy volcano, this is the least we can conclude from our 24 hours of sharing the landscape with it. The clouds where pretty much everywhere on and around the snow-capped dome. But this actually made the 20 seconds we saw it amazingly special. I almost cried. And I’m … Continue reading Cotopaxi… or what we’ve seen of it!
3 days enjoying freedom and beauty in a still very preserved place The Tatacoa desert was one of those great surprises you get during a trip.

Making our way to the north of Bogotá driving our cute but ugly Chevrolet Spark After a week in Cartagena and around, time has come for my dad to leave us, and for us to leave confort.
