Hi guys,

I am travelling on my own to Sth America at beg of March for 3 months. My boyfriend can't take 3 months off work (understandably) and a girlfriend I was supposed to be travelling with is proving unreliable. I'm a little nervous about travelling on my own, esp since my first stop is Rio when Carnaval is on so if you're heading to SA around the same time, get in touch as it would be reassuring to know like minded solo people will be in the same shoes!

My planned route at this stage is Rio -> BA (via Sao Paulo, the Iguazu Falls, Florianapolis, Uruguay, Montevideo etc) then up to Cartegena in Columbia, down to Lima (into Amazon for a bit), Peru, Bolivia. Chile (Mendoza, Santiago, Valpraiso, etc) then back to BA for some shopping, onto Rio then fly out back to London!

Thanks,
Becks

Thanks Willy and Steven. I am in touch with a couple of girls who are heading to SA at the same time and will be staying nearby so think I'll be ok when I get there.
