I finally packed up my gear and left London. It had been a four year temporary lifestyle. Four years of locum work and travelling the world. Time for one last adventure, one last dash for freedom before arriving home to start a permanent life. Travelling through South and Central America. My dream trip, I had been planning this for years…
The plan: Start in Lima, travel south through Peru, Bolivia and Chile, and down to the tip of Patagonia. Then bus up through Argentina, travel through Brazil, and fly back over to Ecuador. Then continue overland north through Columbia, take a boat over to Panama, and travel through Central America as far as Mexico City. Then home. It should take 10 months or so, it’s a pretty fudged out itinerary and there’s always room for change.
Why am I starting in Lima? Well, its simple really. I have no set plans. I have a fudged out idea of an itinerary but freedom is big on my priority list. And when I looked at that itinerary there seemed to be only one thing that I had to book in advance, the Inca trail. And that is the one and only reason why I am starting in Peru.
Stop one on the South American Adventure, Lima, Peru.
