Passport? Check. 2 months off work? Check. Flights to South America? Check. Excitement? Check!

The flights are now booked and paid for. Time to start getting excited!

This will be the longest and most epic trip I've been on so far. The longest I've been on holidays was the 6 weeks I had in Europe and that felt like a long time. The only problem is that it doesn't really seem that long on paper when you're planning out the route. We also had the added problem of miscounting on the calendar and had accidently made the trip 9 weeks long instead of 8 and so had to cut some things out of the itinerary to get it back down to 8.

So the trip is roughly as follows:

Quito (Ecuador)
Otavalo (Ecuador)
Banos (Ecuador)
Cuenca (Ecuador)
Fly to Lima (Peru)
Overland from Lima to Arequipa via Huacachina/Nazca lines
Arequipa/Colca Canyon/Chivay
Inca trail/Machu Picchu
Lake Titicaca (Peru/Bolivia)
La Paz (Bolivia)
Salar de Uyuni (from Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama, Chile) 3 day/2 night 4wd tour
San Pedro de Atacama to Salta (Argentina)
Iguazu falls
Buenos Aires
Back to Melbourne

Only 8 weeks to go!
