Tyke’s travel tips

Here are some travel tips for those planning a trip to south america. 1- NEVER ARRIVE AT NIGHT – chances are you’ll be making those gruelling 20 hour plus bus journeys, the last thing you want is to be wandering round a strange town with all your stuff at the dead of night. 2- YOU WILL GET ROBBED – depending on your outlook, this may be funny, mildly annoying or a personal tragedy.

Hello Nicaragua

Hello Nicaragua
