Almost ready… been doing a little tax free shopping, packing, emailing and general ‘travel stuff’. Quite a boring day compared with some days in South America.
I arrived in Buenos Aires in February.
Took a flight to Ushuaia, the most southern city in the world.
Took a ship to Antarctica.
Took a bus to Torres Del Paine in Chile
Back in to Argentina for Spanish lessons in Baralochie.
To Mendoza for more lessons and lots of fun with the American girls
Then to Chile, Santiago and San Pedro De Atacama
Into Bolivia and climed to over half the hight of Everest
Suffered altitude sickness
Awed by the Salar del Uyuini
Potosi, Sucre and a few more Spanish lessions
In to the mighty Amazon Rain Forest.
La Paz and our bus is stoned and held up by masked men in the middle of the night
Lake Titicaca another border crossing, another bus stoning
Peru, Nazca Lines, The Inca Trail and Lima
Ecuador, and the stunning Galapagos Islands
Back to Argentina and Iguazu Falls
Back to tonight, back to my hostel, back to Buenos Aires and tomorrow
Back to the airport and back to Europe.
Before the whole South American thing happened I had ten days in Thailand, four months in Australia and 13 months in New Zealand.
I have met some fantastic people and I have made some new, very close friends.
I’m not too sure what I have done to deserve such luck to experience such a trip.
I have visited all seven continents on Earth and now I am really looking forward to going home.
