Ohhh really!
Are you going any other places after BA? Have you got accommodation booked for Carnaval?
I am just deciding at the moment whether to do BA before or after RIO? Have you booked the tour from Rio to BA?
Million questions haha last but not least how long are you going to travel for!

Our trip for S/A:
Rio - B/A Intrepid tour
B/A for extra 4 days after our tour
8 day Machu Picchu tour
after S/A we are spending a couple of days in Cancun to recover then we head on to USA starting in Austin hopefully drive up to Toronto :)

SoOoOo excited.

You should check out the Intrepid tour.

We have no accommodation yet for Rio but i think we are looking at Paysandu for 6 nights then get something along the beach for 2nights? not sure.

What are your travel plans are you just saying in South America?

Is the Intrepid tour the one that takes 19 days leaving 10th March? It looks really good! Do you know how you are going to get from BA to Peru? (or does the tour leave from there again?)

Wow cool! How long long are you going to USA for? Do you have a date you have to be back home? Are you just going to hire a car?

I haven't got accommodation for Rio yet but I am hoping to book it within like the next two weeks just so I am organised haha

I haven't got exact plans yet hey I know I am in Rio for the week for Carnaval, and that I definitely want to do BA also, and all the things along the way like the falls etc. I also want to do Peru, amazon jungle also. I was also hoping to do Chile and up to Bolivia too, there are some good tours for those as well.

Hey if you like I can add you on fb it's heaps easier to chat there :)
