I also like to thank Huei-Min, Dilip and Simon who provided so much advises regarding South America. I also should mention a thank to my travel agent who had to changed my itinerary over and over again. The number of hours I have spend researching where to go how to get there and to generate this closely packed itinerary is only possible with the internet. There is a wealth of information from travelpod I highly recommend this site as a research tool. Hopefully someone will find my blog useful in the future.
This is the first trip where I will visit a wide range of environments all in one go. Packing my travel pack has not been an easy task. I will need to be prepare for the freezing conditions of Antarctica, high mountains in the Andes, to the Jungle of the Amazon and Galapagos Islands.
I also need to make sure I bring just the "right" camera gears. Many of my friends and family ridicule my 5.2kg camera pack. My trip to the Kimberley has provided a taste to how heavy my camera bag get with all my lenses! I also have to make sure I have adequate power for my camera at all times. My GPS Geotagging device turn out to be a hugh power drain. I also researched on how it is best to transfer and store all the thousands of photo I will be taking. Again there be special emphasis on the occassional lack of power. Keep an eye here and when I return home I will upload more photo to my picasa gallery
With my bags packed, paperwork all in order, vaccination and medical kit prepared I am ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
I will try to keep this travel blog up to date with my adventure or misadventure! Next stop Santiago.
