Que chevere!

I posted all of my travel diary sketches on Behance because why not.

If you ever wondered what moving to London would be like, it involves a lot of football (especially Tottenham, if that's who your husband supports) and going to Ikea every month (to buy a faux sheepskin rug, obviously).

Argentina and final days of travelling

Here are the last couple of weeks from our big travelling adventure. Uruguay was not as cool as I thought it would be, but Buenos Aires was even better than I could've anticipated. 

Now we've been back in London for months and I'm daydreaming about vineyards and mountain hikes and Mega Queso Doritos, all of the unbearable bus journeys and terrible food forgotten (or at least remembered through my rose-tinted glasses).

Machu Picchu, Chile and Argentina - Travel Diary

Here are some more pages from travelling. For the record, Machu Picchu is one of those touristy bucket list destinations that lives up to the hype and is totally worth it to visit. Also for the record, that bus journey was the worst. Someone threw a rock through a window and we had to pull into a bus depot at 2am so they could tape someone cardboard over the broken window. It was not as fun as it sounds. And I forgot to mention Beef Puppy in my list of interesting dogs we would sing about. We really did make up little jingles about all of the dogs we'd see. Sometimes you run out of things to talk about when you're on the road together for so long.

Time in Peru - Travel Diary

These are dates from when we were in southern Peru. I think we were getting a little burnt out on the Gringo Trail by then. But Colca Canyon was really cool, even if going there meant an extra 12 hours or so of bus time. (Same as going to the Amazon - an extra 20 plus hours of sitting on the bus, but sooo worth it.) And Cusco was a lot better than I thought it would be. I expected a horrible little place overrun and destroyed by tourism but I found the old town to be really quaint and beautiful. Go Cusco!

And the rest of Ecuador - Travel Diary

Sam and I travelled around Ecuador after we left the hippie vegan farm. We went to Banos, Cuyabeno, Puerto Lopez, and Guayaquil before hopping on a 30-hour bus to Lima. The Nature Reserve in Cuyabeno was one of the highlights of the whole trip. We got to go piranha fishing and take a nighttime walk through the jungle, where plants glow like in FernGully. Banos was great too - we got to eat pizza cones, which are as amazing as they sound. Especially after a hardcore vegan/ayahuasca-friendly diet.

Escape from the farm - Travel Diary

Here are the last pages from our time working on the hippie farm and our subsequent escape back into the world of mindless tv shows and hot showers. I don't really think vegetarianism is stupid. But that was the best chicken.

Ecuador Travel Diary - part 2

If you've ever wondered what it's like to work on a vegan permaculture farm in Ecuador, here is my first-hand experience.
