Name backpacking and exploring South America

Hello all!Hola!!. My name is Dionysios, I am 31 years old. I am a Greek-Italian guy that I was borne In Greece (Crete Island) and studied as a Mechanical Engineer. I have also some origins from Italy, Bologna. At the moment I am living and working in Luxembourg. My Company's contract is finished by the end of September and before to start looking for another boring Job which will probably occupy most of my time I am planning of doing a backpacking trip (about forty days in November 2012) to experience new cultures and new countries in South America.
It is something I have dreamt since childhood and now it will be a reality.
I will be heading from Frankfurt to Buenos Aires somewhere in the beginning of November although thats not a fixed date yet. I am really flexible in destinations and dates and I would like to visit a few countries there like : Argentina(the first destination of the trip), Uruguay, Perou, Bolivia, Chile bu I am open also to other places for visiting.
Actually this is going to be a budget trip. The idea is to travel using bus/train rides, hitch hiking, walking, or other the same cheap ways. I am thinking of food and accommodation to use the Couchsurfing experience where I have also an account there(http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/nionios/) or staying in inexpensive Hostels. I will try to keep the cost for this trip in the minimum budget.
My philosophy and how I can see the whole plan is to meet and interfere as much as possible with the local people, experience the culture and the landscapes of each city and why not participating is some activities like bicycling, trekking,etc. The most important thing is to try backpack in each visited country!

As for me I am an easy-going person, open minded, easily adaptable in all the situations, with tones of humor in my character.

I am opening this thread here to find travel partners to share the whole or at least a path of that trip. The idea is travelling with other companions for travel safety, sharing this unique experience of discovering new places and having lots of fun and laughs.

So if you feel like getting on this trip, jump on and follow me! I am looking forward to hearing from you! Send me a message and I will come back to you the soonest.
Lets travel!
Thanks in advance!
Dennis
