I'm a 33 year old male from Australia, I'm looking tot take a year off starting from around September next year 2004, and do a full circuit of south America and then up through central America and Mexico. It will be my third time to latin america. I like to try everthing, from white water rafting to eating alpaca stir fry and mix of travel stlyes from budget to mid range.
Looking for a few like minded individuals to share the adventure.
Hi there, unfortunately I'm not able to join you now (maybe later). I do want to share a tip though: go horseriding in Tupiza, Bolivia.
It's great fun and a good adrenaline booster. If you want, they let you go galopping at your first try. Wicked! It was good fun for me.
I went to Valle hermosa. Someone made a site about it: www.bolivia.freehosting.net
I really envy all of you Aussies - you take these grand year-long tours. I wish I could have done that! Of course now I have 2 kitties so that wouldn't be possible, but I will try to live vicariously. Please keep a diary on here - I have never been to S America and would love to follow your adventures.
