After 3 months traveling through Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil; trekking through both Chilean and Argentinian Patagonia and along the Inca Trail; volunteering in a medical centre and on a jungle conservation project in the Amazon; partying it up in Rio de Janeiro at Carnaval; biking through Malbec wine country; roadtripping through southern Bolivia and the Mars-like San Pedro de Atacama… I can truly say that this is one of the most amazing adventures I’ve ever had. Even typing that list makes me want to throw my textbooks out the window and teleport back to South America immediately. One look at these photos, and you will too.
