August 23rd - November 4th: Quito Ecuador for 6 weeks of Spanish language school. I will definitely be taking weekend trips to the equator, market towns, Amazonian rain forest, mountain hiking, etc. If I can get a good deal on a last minute package, them maybe the Galapagos Islands as well. Travelling overland to the Peru border.
November 5th - November 6th: In transit through Peru. I've already been to Peru, seen Lima, partied in Cuzco and visited Machu Picchu. I'm 90% sure I'll travel overland to the northern part of Peru, then catch a couple flights to Arequipa on the southern end. Basically spending no time here...maybe a night or two depending on flight availability.
November 7th - November 25th: Bolivia. That's it...nothing else is solid. I'll be doing it overland from Peru and plan on visiting all the major sites including the salt plains and the road of death...will probably do a 4 day tour of the salt plains and some mountain biking down the worlds most dangerous road.
November 26th - December 22nd: Argentina. Like Bolivia, nothing is solid...but I'll be starting in the north near Salta close to the Bolivian border, travelling via bus down the Chillean border to wine country, hiking El Chalten, visiting the Moreno glacier then starting back north via bus (maybe plane) ending up in Buenos Aires for my flight home. Will also squeeze in a trip to Iguazu falls near the Brazilian border too.
So...if you'd like to meet up, send me an email and let's start talking about when and where. 12 more days!
