A self-professed travel and workaholic… I'm 33, single and a professional PR girl who has been globe trotting and hopping around the world my entire life. As a military B.R.A.T. we moved 19 times growing up so you could say I got the “bug” for travel early. I've just quit my job and am traveling to South America in 2012 for as long as I can, starting 1 Feb. Looking for travel buddies to meet up with.

AlisonK Hi there. I'm leaving Feb 1 for Brazil, then going to Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Peru. Likely staying through end April. Let me know if you'd like to meet up!

AlisonK Hi Charlene (and Noreen too) I'm American, female, 33 and heading down to South America in mid Jan 2012 through end March (or longer if I still have cash!) Let me know if you want to plan to meet up/travel together as we have some similar interests. See my trip details I just posted too. Cheers, Ali
Charlene
Charlene Hey Alison, Good to hear from you. What are your plans for South America?

AlisonK I'd like to hit up Venezuela to the Angel Waterfalls, Machu Picchu in Peru, Bolivia, Columbia, wineries in Chile, maybe a boat trip to Antarctica, wine/food/dancing in Argentina and end up in Rio for Carnival in early March.

Charlene wow, you've got a lot planned for just over 2 months! I will be taking it a bit slower as I like to get a feel for the countries I'm in as well as seeing all the sights. I was planning on travelling around Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, inclusing the galapagos islands if I can afford it. I will also head to Chile if I have enough money and easter island as well if I can afford it. I haven't got enough money to do Argentina and Brazil this time and I don't want to try and cram too much into a short time. I think I'd need at least 6 months to do the whole continent. Were you planning on starting in Venezuela then and then going to Peru? I've been told the inca trail is closed in February for maintenance

AlisonK Agreed! I'm not married to going in any particular order. I figured about 1 week in each country, just go as I feel. I might need to cross over to Rio for Carnival and then keep going to the other places, that's really the only timing thing. Otherwise, if I can afford it I'll go as slow or fast as things happen! GI wasn't really on my list but the Antarctica thing is very pricey, so I understand. Yes, I think Venezuela first then Peru, makes sense geographically. Inca trail would have to be in January then or March...

AlisonK P.S. You can still get to Machu Picchu in Feb on a two day trek or take the train.

Charlene yeh I would like to go to the carnival but as I was planning on being on the other side of the contitnent it doesn't really make sense. When is it again? The Inca Trail is the top must thing for me so I would want to do the 4-day trek. I'd probably start in Ecuador as that makes sense geographically for me to start there and head south through Peru, Bolivia and then possibly Chile. Where do you live?
