 Route In South America.
I've been trying to work out how to travel in SA for ages, and I think I've got it now. Many thanks to Matías, who has helped me a lot planning this route! 

The idea is to start in Sao Paulo for about a week (21st - 28th sept) then heading north through Rio, Salvador, Recife, Natal, to Santarem, Taking a Boat or flight to Manaus, and another boat or flight from Manaus to Leticia (about a month for that - October) Form there a boat to Iquitos, and then Ecuador, maybe Galapagos Islands, and travel down through Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, and stopping again in Sao Paulo for Christmas for about a week. After that take about two month (January and February) to go down thorugh Argentina to Usuahia, allways stopping in various places, and up through Chile to Santiago, where my next flight to New Zealand departs.

Obviously that's just a plan, and it will probably change a lot...I'll mostly travel by bus, but I will also take some flights when needed and not too expensive...


Hoy he tenido a la mayoria de mi familia y amigos mas cercanos en casa, para decir adios (y comer un montón)...Creo que ahora que habéis visto mi equipaje estáis todos mas convencidos de que estoy bien organizada! :)

Gracias por todos vuestros consejos, ayuda, apoyo y carinio, de verdad que lo aprecio muchísimo.

Solo me queda un dia y medio para salir...Todavía no se si estoy nerviosa, emocionada, las dos cosas...
Ya tengo casi todo listo. Salgo el martes 18 a Londres, me quedo allí dos días, para salir el 20 por la noche desde Heathrow a Sao Paulo.
Llevo un montón de tiempo intentando ver como viajar en sudamérica, y creo que ya lo tengo. Muchas gracias a Matías, que me ayudó mucho planeando la ruta!
La idea es empezar en Sao Paulo durante aproximadamente una semana, y empezar a subir hacia el norte, parando en distintos sitios, a través de Rio, Salvador, Recife, Natal, hasta Santarem. Coger un barco o avión a Manaus, y otro barco o avión de Manaus a Leticia. Para esto he calculado un mes, hasta finales de octubre. Desde aquí coger una lancha rápida a Iquitos, y pasar a Ecuador, quizás a las Islas Galápagos, y viajar atravesando Perú, Bolivia, Paraguay, y estar en Sao Paulo por navidad. Después de esto en unos dos meses (enero y febrero), bajar Argentina hasta Usuhaia, siempre parando en distintos lugares, y subir por Chile, hasta Santiago, desde donde sale mi vuelo a Nueva Zelanda. 

 Obviamente esto es solo un plan, y seguro que va a cambiar un monton...La mayoría del tiempo viajaré en avión, y cogeré vuelos en algunos tramos siempre que no sean muy caros...
