E C U A D O R

Just a short edition this one because I reverted back to being a surf bum and therefore my four weeks in this beautiful little country was in the main spent paddling about avoiding getting smashed in by giant beach breaks. It took me two days on buses to reach Montañita. My desire to get here…

From Bogs With Love

Having spent the best part of 6 months travelling solo and fully embracing a life of sobriety it has become pretty clear that the correlation between beer and women is without doubt POSITIVE!   C O L O M B I A N  T I N D E R  S C E N E Whilst…

The Latino Dream Starts Here
