Here Is The Plan

My trip will start in Colombia where I will be staying for three months as I take intensive Spanish classes, enjoy the salsa night life of Cali the city that's been dubbed "The salsa capital" (I love salsa) and absorb the local culture. I already have a friend in Cali and we plan on sharing an apartment together while splitting the cost.

Next stop will be Ecuador then Peru (I have been here before but only spent a night in Lima before going to Cusco on my way to Machu Picchu so I hope to see more second time round). From Peru I plan to go to Bolivia then Chile. I have been to Argentina before (Buenos Aires and Iguazzu) so I may go back to see more but that depends on how things work out. My first visit to Argentina was not the best for me personally so I am a bit hesitant to go back but who knows.

I would like to check out Uruguay, don't know much about the country but hey! why not go there and learn something right? I have the same sentiments about Paraguay. These two countries are toss ups, I may or may not visit them but only time will tell.

Lastly of course I would like to go back to Brazil again because the first time round I only got to check out Rio and the Iguazzu falls (I managed to see both sides, the Brazilian and Argentinian side). Brazil is a huge country and there is a lot to see but Salvador is one place I have to visit.

That is my plan so far but things could change depending on circumstances. I am so relaxed about my plan and not rigid at all, if I get bored with a place I will just move on to the next. For me this trip is not geared toward seeing everything or making sure I experience all the "must do/see" things in South America, I just want to take my time and travel lazy. In the past I have always had this check list of things or places I needed to see when visiting different countries but now since I have many months at my disposal, I will take my time.
