Andy (31) travelling with girlfriend Ashleigh (29) for 9 months around South America.

Writing the blog to help remember as I have a god-awful memory and my mum can read it to see what we are up to as it’s hard to stay in touch when you are busy watching The Wire in bed, between doing touristy stuff.

Hopefully Ashleigh will write a few posts too whilst we are away, as it’s quite a ballache.
