Name Around South America

Hi everyone! Ok so I am creating this trip because this one is flexible and don't have any precise plan, open to change, open to be joined at any time, etc.

I am not really afraid of going on my own as this is what I am doing. I am going 2 years around the world and this one is about my first part, From Brazil to Mexico from November 2013 to September 2014 (flying from San Francisco).
My initial plan is to arrive there and find travellers on the go, I think this is not something that can be fully organised as organising too much is missing out on the best experiences so the plan is not too have too many things plan. I don't think meeting locals and doing it the real way is to travel with a large group but why not posting this before going to find people with the same interests before arriving there.

My travel philosophy is to meet foreign people along the way. This is a wonderful experience, a really instructive one. A way to be more open minded, more tolerant and to know more about the different existing cultures we definitely don't know enough about. The School of Life as we say, traveling everywhere should be mandatory ;-)

I don't plan to stay in expensive posh/pretentious/touristic accommodation places. I plan to do some couchsurfing to meet lots of locals, to go to hostels, using airbnb, etc.

Regarding transport, I don't plan to use any ATW ticket (they suck really), I only have my one way ticket to Rio and then will do mainly overland using coaches (quite popular in South America).

If you plan to be around at the same time, if you want to visit the same countries and if you don't have many plans so far, then let's not have plan together! ;-)
