Last Day In South America

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.

Learnt nothing

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

Learnt nothing

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.
