I'll keep reading about Colombia to Brazil via Leticia/Manaus I don't mind if it takes a few days just as long as its safe at the border crossing (I have some bad luck in the past with my travels). The north-east of Brazil and down the coast is looking good, have you travelled down that way? I'm thinking about the Brazilian visa, I need it for a week for Carnival then I wont be back in Brazil till June. I'm looking at a slow journey from Belem to Rio for World Cup Finale Let's hope there is no problem with getting an extension or maybe I should just apply for another one (although paying another $100+ wouldnt be great). Whats your experience with Brazilian visas and extensions?
Yep, I'll just book Patagonia when I get there This is going to be fun trying to fit clothing for all the different weather conditions I'll be encountering haha
Thanks for all your info so far!
