Hello everyone,
I know its a long way away but is anyone planning on travelling South America for the first half of 2007? I was thinkin about going from January to June or something like that. I am an 18 year old female and so would be great to have someone to travel with.

Hey Emily,

Wow your plans are similar to mine which is great! I wanna go to Ecuador or Venezuela in April and May. But to be honest I'm flexible about the destinations. So just run me through your ideal places and then we can work from there yeh? June might work but I've planned to go to Australia then...

I'd wanna go backpacking and travelling mainly, nothing like voluntary projects cause I'm doing one in South Africa in July with my boyfriend.

I'm 18 next week, in my final year of school and live in Bath, England. Its in the South west.

Hope to hear from you soon,

I'm Sal 26 yr old male from Toronto, Canada. Got fed up with my corporate job and decided its time to hit the road.

I'm planning on leaving Toronto sometimes in Spring 2007 and backpacking all the way down to south america around cape horn and back up again.

If you are interested we can chat more and see if we can travel together for part of the trip.

I'm setting off from Buenos Aires at the beginning of January 07'. I might go south, to La Patagonia or...somewhere else. Still trying to decide. I'd love a companion, and it looks like our plans intersect quite nicely. Just let me know if I've peaked any interest.

G'day Emily and others. I'm an Aussie guy heading to South America for about three months from December 06 to march 07. Would be great to catch up with others or find some travelling companions for parts of the trip. I'll be volunteering in Peru until mid december. Then hopefully going to the galapagas Islands, then seeing ecuador, back to Peru for Machu Pichu etc..then plan to make my way down to patagonia some way or another. Leaving S.A from Santiago in Mid March.

Cheers Simon

Hello everybody, here is my plan:
I will be flying to Costa Rica september 23th, 4 weeks of Spanish lectures in San José, than travelling through Costa Rica and Panama, flying from Panama-City to Lima on November 1st where a mate will join me for 3 weeks round Peru/Bolivia. Then through Chile and Argentina hopefully all the way to Ushuaia, meeting up with an English friend and her Argentinian boyfriend who are guides in a National Park in the south of Argentina somewhere in the Christmas period. Then back north where Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil (carnival in Rio for example) could be good options. Flying back from Buenos Aires on March 16th 2007.

If anyone thinks we are going to cross paths, feel free to contact me by personal message, would be great to have some travel buddies!

HI everyone

I am a twenty year old female and planing to leave for a 6 to 8 month trip through argentina. Will be taking part in a spanish course in October and then do some voluntary work. Afterward I ll be travelling ( most probably from February onwards) so if anybody is interrested in joing me for some time on the road, just sent me a message.
I would be glad to have a companion.
