Hi Emily,
I'm travelling down from Alaska since September - going it alone in the van I bought in Vancouver...and enjoying myself immensly. Although I do want to add that without speaking Spanish (ie being able to communicate with the locals) it would not be half the fun and maybe a bit more difficult. Although I have met a number of people who didn't speak it and enjoyed the additional challenge.

As long as you're not bothered by the constant questions (?Alone?Sola? is without a doubt the question I get to hear most often) and expressions of appreciation of young men (in one form or another) it gives you a lot of flexibility - and as the others have written you always meet others along your way with whom you can join for a while, until you decide you want to meet new people or go to another place. And as you can see from the amount of posts: South America will be crowded the first half of the year ;)

As for South America: I'll be heading down to Peru beginning of February (decided I wanna do another round of Central America and leave Ecuador for next time - so much for the flexibility ;). I'll be travelling with my boyfriend for a bit as he comes to visit, and then head South taking in some of Bolivia while I'm at it...should be flying out of Santiago round end March...otherwise: I'm flexible ;)

Happy to meet you - or anyone else in the thread - along the way if you let me know where you are,
