South America Trip Day 31: Change of the guard, Bahai Temple Santiago

After leaving the hostel at 10, we got a Completo breakfast (the Chilean version of a hotdog, which is amazing) at Ravera, food court next to the plaza, before heading to the palace to see the change of guards.

At the palace, they do it big. There are around 40/50 soldiers playing in a fanfare, around 90 foot soldiers with rifles and 10 on horse with large spears. Whole show took like 25 minutes.

South America Trip Day 26-29: Easter Island

After waking up on a bench in the airport of Santiago, it was time to check in! After getting some dunking donuts, we entered our 6:00 AM flight for a 5 hours trip to Easter Island!


After landing around 12:00 PM, we straight away got our tickets for the national park. These price for the ticket is 54,000 pesos per person, which is quite expensive (so be aware of that). You usually can pay by card, but the machines were out of order so we had to pay cash (make sure you bring enough cash!). You need the ticket to enter all the sights valid for a period of 10 days, with the sights of Orongo and Rano Raraku only allowed to enter once.

6 places to stop on a UK road trip

Laughs, memories and adventure: you can expect all of this and more from your UK road trip. Who says you need to travel to an exotic location to have a fantastic holiday? There are so many amazing places sitting on your doorstep just waiting to be explored. Don’t just take our word for it, ask the 37.9 million tourists who visited the UK in 2018, eager to experience British culture and admire the green landscapes. If you’re worried about the safety of a road trip, don’t be; driving fatality rates are the best they’ve ever been in Europe and the odds of a driving-related death occurring are 49 in a million.

What are you waiting for? Get your driving snacks prepared and add these six epic locations to your UK road trip plan:

1. Wiltshire

You might think that nothing much happens in this farming county, but it’s actually home to one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in the world. There are many theories surrounding the construction of Stonehenge, ranging from ritual worship to aliens. Whatever the reason, Stonehenge truly is a marvellous construction; it’s well worth visiting the structure so you can make up your own mind about the reason for its erection.

2. Cornwall

Everyone needs to stop at the seaside during their road trip. Slip-on a wetsuit, swap your car for a surfboard and have great fun surfing the Cornish waves (or in most cases, falling into them). You could also use this stop off as a chance to visit St Michael’s Mount, a majestic castle located on its own tidal island.

3. Bristol

Modern art lovers will be in their element in Bristol as they get to explore the Banksy artwork that is dotted all around the town. Once you’ve had your fill of art, there is so much more to do and see in one of the biggest cities in the south-west of England; Bristol Harbour is a great place to admire the view and grab a bite to eat, while a tour of Brunel’s SS Great Britain is a great activity if you have young children.

4. Cumbria

If you want to immerse yourself in the beauty of the UK’s nature, then look no further than the Lake District. This national park is a beauty to explore and the ideal picnic destination for sunny days. You could easily spend days here, hiking the scenic routes and camping overnight.

5. Birmingham

Shopaholics will be in their element in this bustling city, sure to find a road trip souvenir in the many ‘Brummie’ shops. If you’re hungry, grab a curry for dinner, as the locals will argue that Birmingham’s are the best in the country.

6. London

No epic road trip is complete without a trip to the capital. Start off with a ride on the London Eye, before hopping on a tube to visit Buckingham Palace. If you like all things unique, then a trip to Camden market is essential before you get back on the road.

South America Trip Day 25: Morning in Buenos Aires, Afternoon in Santiago

One day, two capitals. We started at 1 am in Buenos Aires, reached from Ushuaia. Tried to get an Uber but they all declined because of the area our hostel was in… so we where forced to take a cab. After waking up we found out that we stayed in the SOHO area of BA, so food hunt! Or, that is what we thought. Restaurants open between 12 and 14, and we planned to head to the airport around 12:30. We ended up in a local pastry shop buying sweets. Such a disappointment!
