South America Trip Day 35: Iguazu Argentina and a weird night at Sao Paulo

Today, we planned a long day of travel and activities. Starting the day with waking up around 7:30 AM to get our stuff packed, quick breakfast at the hostel before our host Gustavo dropped us to the Argentinian border again around 8:45 AM to see the Argentinan side of Iguazu.


Gustavo brought us again, and around 10 am we arrived. We got lucky and straight away got boat ride ticket to go close to the falls. After purchasing the entrance tickets (850 pesos per person) we went to the jeep pick up, for an half hour ride towards the boat through the jungle of Iguazu. Above us a lot of big spiders while driving. If you do not like bugs, be prepare to endure them :-).

Strolling in Volendam: De Dijk

De Dijk in the Dutch city of Volendam is a tourist hotspot. Why? The amazing view over the lake called the IJsselmeer, the many tourists shops, fresh sea food and nice walking routes. During COVID-19 not a lot of tourism was going on. But, the empty streets make up for some nice pictures.

Sightseeing in Edam without tourism

COVID-19 forces us to stay at home as much as we can, and be responsible about the trips we make. Once things calmed down, we decided to slowly see something of our current country of residence: the Netherlands! Today we share with you some pictures of Edam, the city famous for it’s cheese market (which was not open unfortunately šŸ˜‰ ).

Zaanse Schans without tourists during COVID-19

The Zaanse Schans, located in Zaandam, is a sight that reminds us of the golden ages of the Netherlands and is one of the most famous tourist attractions in the Netherlands. With COVID-19, the sight is still open for public but of course with limited stores opened. Great way to see this otherwise swamped by tourists sight in it’s full glory!

South America Trip Day 34: Travel day towards Iguazu (Brazil)

In this day I will take you along our adventures on the airport and getting just in time to see Iguazu waterfalls from the Brazilian side. Lots of travel on one day, but we made it at the end!

South America Trip Day 33: Day trip to Montevideo, Uruguay

Alarm rings to wake us up at 5:30 AM in the morning, quick shower and Uber to Buquebus to catch our ferry to a new country and the most southern Capital of Latin America: Montevideo, Uruguay!

South America Trip Day 32: Roaming around in Buenos Aires

Around 12:00 AM we arrived at our Hotel, Gran Hotel Argentina, located next to the Plaza de Mayo. We got a room all the way up on the 8th floor, great view over the widest avenue in the world and the obelisk of Buenos Aires!

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 30: Santiago, Chile

Today, we took the time to explore everything that Santiago has to offer. From the Plaza de Amas, to some tips of restaurants and hotspots we visited during the Free walking tour.

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.
