About Us

Here we are! Just before we left Sydney in July 2017.

We are CC and PB and we left our jobs in Sydney, Australia for 2 years so that we could travel and volunteer in Latin America. We flew from Sydney to Santiago, Chile to start our journey in July 2017. Two years later we arrived in Mexico City! 🙂 We travelled overland for the whole route, except for the short hop over the Darien Gap from Medellin to Panama City.

We are both 40-somethings and big fans of wildlife and birds – but not ‘proper’ birdwatchers – we are too lazy for that 🙂 For most of our trip we tried to prioritise places where we could see wildlife and nature, and we became a bit obsessed with finding new birds and animals that we hadn’t seen before. The result was an ‘official bird list’ – which of course is not finished! But one day it will be… 🙂

We wrote most of this blog as we travelled, but in the end we couldn’t keep up and ended up with a backlog of posts to write – so we are slowly finishing this blog from Sydney. We are a bit slow, but we will get there! 🙂
