4 days to go! I so cant believe it, this is so so so exciting. First though I better introduce myself. My name is Lara, I am 18 and am about to go on my own little adventure of a lifetime, by going with Encounter to South America! I am following their Amazon and Andes trail, which will start in Quito, Ecuador, on Friday. Ive always wanted A: to take a gapyear and B: to go to South America. ‘A’ is going very very well indeed and I am having so much fun out of school, and hopefully ‘B’ will be even better. Anyway enough of the blurb, Ill write more when I am finally there!
