Finally, after 30 take offs and landings, my 9 weeks of travel has come to an end. In these 9 weeks I have been very privileged to have seen so many wonders this planet has to offer. From natural beauty of Antarctica to ancient wonder of Machu Picchu to amazing city like Buenos Aires. There were so many highlights. Antarctica is a destination that is very hard to beat, the magical mooments so close to wildlifes shared only with the experience at the Galapagos Islands. The culture experience in Peru is simply amazing. The physical feat of completing the Inca Trail will probably be the most difficult trek I will ever do.

This trip has taught me lots. I believe travel has enriched me. I met new people and cultures, ate new cuisines, saw beautiful sceneries and wildlife. I learnt the history, geography and zoology of the places that I visited. Now I can start reflecting on how lucky I am.

I wish I have asked for a longer transit time at Buenous Aires instead of accepting my travel agentīs recommendation. My gut instinct did tell me if something was to go wrong with my flight the connection to La Paz will be the problem. I am disappointed that I did not visit Bolivia in particularly the Salar de Uyuni. I am disappointed that I split my week for Bolivia equally between Buenos Aires and Lima. I probably would have like to stay longer in Buenous Aires (my favourite city in South America). I probably did not need to change my flight from Iguazu, but having the 2 extra days meant I could visit the waterfalls when the weather was nice instead of being dictated by a tight schedule.

Should I have visited less places and spend more time in each? I donīt know. Many people i have met were amazed by the amount of ground I have covered in these 9 weeks. There are so many other places in South America I would like to see. I will need to returnanother time to see them.

I guess now I need to recover the RAF files from my notebookīs HD, then I need to start processing over 7000 photos (175G of RAF files) many of which will no doubt be deleted. Finally I need to start planning for my next adventure.
