A belated Happy New Year for 2018! Over the Christmas chill-out, Marcus ‘Spielberg‘ Tuck has put together some more video stuff from our 2017 moochings around South America in Cuthbert. Four short videos: hiking through Colombia’s towering wax-palms, a super-moon setting at dawn, and the mega-adventure double-feature-set: mud-roads through the Amazon jungle of Guyana and Brazil on the infamous BR-319.
First ‘proper’ blog of 2018 coming soon, but in the meantime… get your popcorn, sit back and enjoy the show 🙂
Cuthbert across the Amazon – July 2017. Brazil’s infamous BR-319 mud road: over 850km from Manaus to Porto Velho. At the end of the wet season, a bit of winching and towing was required (click here for the blog story)
Cuthbert across Guyana – July 2017. A long, slow drive dodging pot-holes and some rather ‘iffy’ sections through the jungle and southern plains of Guyana (click here for the blog story)
Cocora Valley – December 2017. A hike through the stunning Cocora Valley of towering wax-palms, near Salento, Colombia.
Super-moon set at Sunrise – December 2017. Great drone footage of a super-moon setting at dawn in Aguadas, Colombia.
Central Colombia is as good a place as any to take a bit of time out and rustle up a few much-overdue videos of our South America travels. We love it here and are more than happy to stay-put near Medellin for a while, but if we’re honest… our sojourn is actually less our choice and more enforced by Iveco. Remember way back, weeks ago, we placed an order for spare parts with Iveco (Navitrans, in Colombia) which were going to arrive second week of November? Well… surprise, surprise, they didn’t arrive on time and we had a week of sitting around waiting. Anyway… here for your delectation and delight, are the results of our South America Overlanding Videos Fest week:
Lencois Maranhenses – March 2017. The deep-water drive to the stunning Lencois Maranhenses in north-east Brazil (click here for the blog)
Salar de Uyuni and the Laguna Route – July 2016. Driving across the gob-smackingly beautiful scenery of the worlds biggest salt-pan on the Bolivian altiplano (click here for the blog)
Climbing to the Skylodge – Sept 2016. A rock-climb and zip-lining adventure to stay overnight in a bubble hanging at 400m off the side of a cliff in Peru’s Sacred Valley (click here for the blog)
Catching up a bit here with the last blog about our jungle trip in Suriname. Now, get yourself some popcorn, sit back and enjoy the Suriname Jungle Video: Maroon kids chasing their first ever drone! Sooooo cute!
