Hello people - well December this year I am world hopping again!!! :) I am flying to Rio De Janiero, Brazil to begin with and then creating some journey through to Santiago, Chile by bus, mule whatever and possibly volunteering and / or working along the way - 6 months later I will be in NZ and OZ which I may work for a month trekking, picking fruit, meeting the locals and spending the money on getting drunk (not necessarily in that order)!! After that I hit Africa for far out Safaris, seeing the falls and some possible teaching and volunteering for a few months to a year if I can get some work!! I have no plans set in stone though and either way if anyone is hopping the world at this time and possibly going to the same countries as me, please feel free to join me as I would be glad of any drinking buddies/fellow explorers/trekkers whatever that are out there and want to join in!!! By the way I could be starting in Africa first and reversing the itinery but will see!!

I will await to hear from you!!

That sounds awesome! Have to admit I'm a bit jealous about the NZ part of your trip... (it's my very favourite country in the world!!!)

I don't know whether it would be possible for us to meet up, depends on how far south you will be going on your way from Rio to Santiago... I'll probably be in Santiago early December, but going south from there, probably all the way down to Tierra del Fuego, and then going north again along the Argentine coastline. Will probably be in Buenos Aires end of February, Uruguay in March and southern Brazil in April...

Keep me posted about your plans though!!

Hi girls!

I'll be in South America from Jan 06

Peru and Bolivia - Jan

Chile and Argentina - Feb

Susan, should be in Buenos Aires around the same time as you? Planning to leave from there the last week of Feb.

Then off to NZ to work for 6mnths-1yr!

After that, the plans are a bit hazy...but SE Asia is the general direction I'll be heading.

I'll check the SA forum closer to the trip to see what your plans are then!;)

Cool, let go grab a beer in Buenos Aires (or whatever you're suppose to grab when in Argentina...)

I'm going to try and grab a beer with a nice Argentinian man attached to it! Whatcha think? We can leave your boyfriend locked up in a hostel for the day!

Quoting samsara2

I'm going to try and grab a beer with a nice Argentinian man attached to it! Whatcha think? We can leave your boyfriend locked up in a hostel for the day!

Or maybe I can attach him to my beer?

Lol! I was just kidding;)

Okay, you and your boyfriend can help me find a nice Argentinian man attached to a beer. Three heads are better than one!

Actually, I've already found an Argentinian man from Buenos Aires - here on TP! He sends me pictures from his travels in Peru, and write emails to me in English and Spanish - for me to practice!!! Seems really kind.

By the way, I was kidding too!!! I think my boyfriend is perfectly capable to get attached to a beer himself... ;)

Hi people!! Well so far plans are still hazy!! I have a teaching course in January in Costa Rica so will be there in January!! Hope to see Carnival in Rio and Salvador shortly afterward, also (Hi Omar) I will send you a message regarding Peru which I definetely want to see also and possibly teach in at some stage, or I could be teaching in a place near Sao Paulo for a bit - however I could be volunteering in Chile after the course or Argentina. In between working and volunteering some serious partying, trekking and eyeing up of South American men has to be done also (samsara 2 and snatterand) Although whilst previously travelling in Argentina the men seemed a bit shocked that I'd rather stick to my pint than do some salsa dancing, although that did change later at some point good ole manx culture of mine - can't give it up!! (manx being from Isle of Man - one of many things we are reknown for here is drinking)!!
