Vale más que un Potosí

Dicho popular español.

Aquí estoy, y después de visitar la famosa mina de plata (Cerro Rico)*, no sé si comprar más plata o nunca más volver a hacerlo.

* Cuenta la leyenda que se sacó tanta plata en la época de la colonia que se podría haber construido un puente de plata hasta España y todavía habría sobrado.

Sometimes good luck is at your side.

On a classic rainy irish afternoon I played an online game with Air France. I didn't even realise that you could win a prize.

A month after I received an email saying I was the lucky winner: the prize, two return tickets anywhere I wanted in the world.

So we quit our jobs, and free as a bird, we decided to go tho the middle of nowhere: island hopping in the Pacific and from there to the very south of Chile all the way up to Alaska on the American Pacific coast.

As for the return ticket, we are only using it one way. We'll find our way home in some month
