My husband, Chris, and I (Emily) are taking off on a year long trip to South America and hope to keep you up to date on the various events of our trip.
Our primary itenerary is Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. We will be traveling for three months through these countries and then we will ’settle down’ for most of the remaining time in the city/country that appealed to us the most. From there I’m sure we’ll do some side trips, maybe into Chile or Brazil…we’ll see.
When we were planning our trip I was obsessed with scanning the lonely planet thorn tree. I read many blogs by other travelers in Central and South America. Many of them were very interesting, but not always helpful with the details of planning because your friends and family at home don’t really care what the name of the hotel you stayed at was or what # bus you needed to take.
I wanted to create a log of our journey that would be helpful to people planning their trips. Of course the information here is from my limited perspective, but I hope it will be helpful to some of you.
So, read, enjoy, explore!
