The Southern most point of the South American continent falls inside the Antarctic Circle, and the most Northern point adjoins the Caribbean. Being a man of extremes – it was nice to say I covered the continent from end to end. The Guajira Peninsula has been disputed territory between Colombia and Venezuela, but it remains an oasis despite its tumultuous history. Getting there is rough, hours of 4WD adventuring and negotiating rides from town to town. The reward is Punta Gallinas, a place that doesn’t resemble modern civilisation.

Going here was a truly ridiculous idea. It’s the kind of place you travel to and you don’t understand why you did. Although for some reason, I still smile every-time I think of it. Crazy friends and crazy times. Fantastic.
