Amsterdam by day and bike

Monday, April 7th, 2008

With just over one million bicycles (that’s more than one for each of the city’s residents) Amsterdam is a cyclist’s paradise and since we only had a couple days to explore city we decided that getting around town by bike would be the best way to cover as much ground as possible. For about $12 a day, we rented a couple of bikes from MacBike, a bike rental shop near Amsterdam Centraal train station, and began making our way through the maze of bike paths that criss-cross town. Ride around town in today’s gallery.

Shipping out of Buenos Aires

Sunday, February 10th, 2008


All good things must come to an end. We bid enchanting Buenos Aires adieu, jump on a bus (much to our amusement) and head north to Iguaçu Falls in northern Argentina. Take your bus ride up north in today’s photo gallery.

Saying goodbye to Isla Ometepe

Saturday, January 26th, 2008


After a magical few days on this volcanic island in the middle of Lake Nicaragua, it was time to say goodbye. We caught a queasy ride back to the mainland and set our sights on the Costa Rica border. Check out our day of travels by sea and over land in this gallery…
