Hey guys

I hope you can help me here, I am currently attempting to plan my trip to South America and California, and need to book flights asap to obviously save as much money as possible. I plan to leave at start of July and spend 2 months in South America followed by 3 weeks in California.

It's hard to get an idea of how long it takes to travel in SA and how big it is without actually ever being there, however I can give you an idea of what i'd like to do whilst am there, and maybe you can help. I have been to the travel agents and the girl was less than enthuiastic about where I wanted to go and advised me I wouldn't have the time.

This is my basic itinerary-

- Fly in Buenos Aries
- Travel directly overland to Rio by bus (stopping at Iguazu falls and Sao Paulo on the way)
- Fly Rio to La Paz or Santa Cruz
- Travel Bolivia and Peru taking in Salt flats, lake Titicaca, La Paz, Lima, Cuzco (machu picchu)
- Fly Lima to San Fran.

I may be able to convince my girlfriend to do another month in which case I wanna fly to Bogota from Lima and spend a few weeks in Columbia too.

So do you think what I have in mind is possible in the 2 mths I have????

thanks heaps for your help
