About this blog
South America... so much to see and do..... I think I have been thinking about this continent since I returned from my six month back-packing adventure around Europe, back in 2003. "Where to go next...." But I really have been thinking about trying to plan it for the last five years or so. There's been a few serious things that have stopped me, but now is the time! The Amazon, The Galapagas, Macchu Picchu, Rio AND THE SAMBE PARADE/CARNIVALE!!! Of course it's a big continent and I couldn't do everything, unless I quit my job, which I didn't want to do. So I was very grateful that they let me take 6.5 weeks off to do this trip. So fortunate! I scoured many brochures and chose a 33 day tour with Gecko. I don't have to worry about organising anything, sweet! So the plan is a week in Rio for the Carnivale!! Oh yeah!! Then the tour which basically goes coast to coast. The main other thing that I wanted to do was the Inca Trail and to see Macchu Picchu in Peru. Unfortunately I will miss out on the Galapagas......... this time. I hope you enjoy my blog. Mwah!
