Venezuela Summary

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

I was a bit annoyed with my bike for costing so much after a slip in the mud so I ended up leaving it at Cartagena for five weeks and went to Venezuela with a girl that I met on the boat on the way over and did the normal backpacking transportation of taking the […]

Cost of the Ferry between Venezuela and Trinidad

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

I just arrived in Trinidad where Steve is meeting me for a two week holiday, within a break, within a trip. I know it is a hard life. But necessary for my bike trip as he is bringing over some custom earplugs as my ones are broken and I can’t do the rest of my […]

Puerto La Cruz

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Sharon and I spent out last few days in Venezuela together eating at the Chinese and Arabic restaurants that abound in the coastal city of Puerto La Cruz, finishing off the rum we had and drinking strawberry juice drinks at kebab shop next door.

When we walked behind the falls in Canaima I spotted a frog and when it jumped away and I tried to find another one all I found was a leaf. Also check out the ant that needed a light.

Angel Falls

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Angel Falls ‘discovered’ by Jimmy Angel in 1933 are the world’s highest falls at 980m (3212ft). It must also be one of the world’s most isolated falls. We took a 16 hour bus ride to Cuidad Boliver a town on the banks of the Orinoco. From there we took an hour plane ride to a […]

The Orinaco River (made famous in Enya’s song) flows through Venezuela but we won’t see it until we head towards Angel Falls but I decided to use the song in a little video I put together for the rest of my group from our Los Llanos trip.

Yer Man & Yer Wan

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Along with Sharon who I’m traveling with there is another Irish person on the tour who is staunchly patriotic (aren’t all Irish) and who I can only understand about 75% of what he says. I haven’t heard them use ‘good craic’ (fun) or ‘grand’ the expressions I commonly associate with the Irish. But when they […]
