After quite a delay episode 42 of Planet Kapow is now live!
In this video we travel down from Isinlivi to Baños and rides bicycles down to Puyo, then wrap up our time in Ecuador with Erin’s birthday in Cuenca. Next stop, Peru!
A little taste of what’s coming up in Planet Kapow’s videos.
Carina shows us how to make Peruvian style Ceviche
Hola y bienvenidos a este episodio de PK. En este episodio visitamos San Gil, Barichara, Guane y Villa de Leyva.
Come watch us slide down natural rock slides, chance a game of “tejo”, eat some fat assed ants, chill under a waterfall, hang out with a giant Kronosaurus skeleton & various phallic stone carvings in Villa de Leyva and then go explore Colombia’s capital Bogota.
Lachlan’s writeup and the video are over here:
Yes, we are a bit behind with the videos. 4-5 countries or so.
But, so what, here is episode 36!
Up north in Colombia we make our way down to Mompox, accompanied by new Planet Kapow member Mr Phil Berry.
From Mompox we head down to the metropolis of Medellin for some party time and a splash in the pool.
Head on over to Planet Kapow and have a read and watch of our latest creation:
Here we go, the big moment when we crossed from the wonderful world of central america, to the unknown that is south america.
We missed out on the cheap flights from Panama to Colombia, and the $500 5 day yacht cruise wasn’t exciting anyone, so we found a 3rd option. Get to the eastern Panamanian coast and try to catch little boats/rafts/turtles to make our way to Turbo.
In the end it took us 4 days and a lot of waiting around…
But, I will say that it was definitely worth the experience. I have spent so much time sitting in a wooden boat complaining about how much my ass hurt.
Mujeres y Caballeros, here is ep 34! Make sure to check out Lachie’s writeup which goes right into the details of the journey to Colombia.
Here it is, just what you have been waiting for.
The episode in which Lachlan & I learn to surf!!!!!
And we also meet some lovely folks – Bec, Max & Rob – and go check out a natural spring and other rad stuff on the island of Ometepe.
Lachie has a great right up which you must head on over and have a read of – and also watch the ep!
And a big congratulations to Bec & Max for their recent engagement!!!
¡Buenos dias amigos!
I’ve had some issues with my website for a few weeks now but it looks to be back to normal and just in time to let you folks know that the latest episode of Planet Kapow is now online.
In this ep we travel from beautiful Granada (Nicaragua) and check out Volcán Mombacho – no lava yet again but beautiful flora and fauna (including a baby deer), then we shoot to Managua (probably the least coolest city on the trip up to this point), then take a day and a half on buses & boats passing through El Rama and Bluefields to eventually arrive on Big Corn Island (a nice little slice of paradise).
As usual head on over to Planet Kapow, read Lachie’s article, and check out all that is episode 31 – “Granada to Corn Islands”:
Up until we got to Utila (Honduras) I can easily say that I had never had any interests in scuba diving.
I’d tried snorkeling a bunch of times, and couldn’t really see why everyone had been so excited about checking out fish.
Well things have changed.
We spent 3 days at Underwater Vision in Utila doing the PADI Open Water diving certification and had an absolute blast.
Diving is really amazing.
This episode of Planet Kapow is pretty cool – Lachlan went nuts with Dan’s underwater camera, so you can get an idea of what we saw down there.
