A quick overview
16.04.2008 18 °C
Hello everyone and welcome to the blog!
Before Jess and I start blogging away, I thought it might be quite useful to give you all a brief outline of where we'll be going over the next few months:
Starting on the 24th of April, I'm flying into Ecuador and will be spending a few weeks in and around the capital, Quito, learning Spanish and staying with a random Ecuadorian family.
Once I'm finished there, I'll fly down to meet Jess in Lima and we'll head off together to Cusco, where we'll be celebrating my 18th and I'll be doing the Inca Trail. From Cusco, we're going to travel overland all the way around to Rio - via Lake Titicaca, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and the Iguacu Falls - which should take us around 2 months.
For those of you who are interested, I've attached a little map of our trip; apparently the total distance we'll be covering is almost 10,000km - it looks pretty epic!
Anyway, we'll do our best to keep this updated while we're away and we hope you enjoy reading about our travels!
