Recently I hiked over 5,000 metres to the snow line of Nevado del Tolima in Colombia. Before that I spent 5 days trekking to and from Colombia’s Lost City. And before that I completed my longest trek to date – a 6 day hike up and down Mount Roraima in Venezuela.
This recent bout of hiking brought back memories from when I used to hike as a teenager. 10 years ago I used to regularly go hiking with Girl Guiding UK. I hiked at different difficulty levels and in different countries including; England, Switzerland, USA, Australia and Thailand.
Bridge from Colombia to Ecuador
On Friday 10th October 2014 I left Colombia and entered Ecuador. In this blog post I describe the journey from Ipiales to Quito, including stops at Las Lajas and Tulcan.
In September 2014 I spent two weeks in Bogota, the capital of Colombia. Below is a list of my favourite things to do in Bogota. Halfway through writing the list I realised all the activities were free. #Bonus Enjoy!
Solving problems in Problem Resolution!
In this post I discuss how I became a volunteer for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil (the event that started my trip around South America), and share tips on how you can volunteer at large scale sporting events too.
There’s two phenomena currently sweeping South America that nobody is talking about - Crocs and muffin tops.
Forget FARC sightings in Colombia, airlines shutting down in Venezuela, and Rio 2016 volunteer applications opening in Brazil, those topics are occupying enough space. The 2014 Crocs and Muffin Tops Pandemic (CMTP14) is spreading widely and nobody is paying attention! Except me.
On Thursday 10th July 2014 I travelled from Manaus in Brazil to Santa Elena de Uairen in Venezuela. The journey took approximately 17.5 hours. This post discusses that journey and shares advice on Roraima and Angel Falls tours.

Woohoo! I’m alive!
On Tuesday 5th August 2014 I travelled from Maracaibo, Venezuela to Santa Marta, Colombia.
