Hi,

I’m english and living in Dubai at present, targeting to leave my job by August then head off travelling, having people to travel with for some of the time would be good.

So in a rough nutshell:

Late Sept - New York (wedding to attend!)
End Sept - Prob Mexico or direct to South America
October - Peru & Chile
November - Agentina & Paraguay
Dec - Brazil (its massive)
Jan - Venezuela / Costa Rica / Ecuador
Feb - Cuba - direct flight from Ecudaor
Feb / March - LA to Oz / NZ

The above is very flexible but helps to have a plan of some sort! I based the rough trip on seasons more than anything else.

Anyway, happy to chat to people interested.

Cheers

Do you have an approximate budget planned out for the trip?

Not so much no, I would expect to spend 2-3k sterling once there. Obviously it would depend on the level of accommodation (guest house and hostels) plus any paid for trips.

Alright, I’m definitely in the budget traveler category. I have around $10000 saved up but the Canadian dollar sucks right now…
however, that leaves me with more than enough for that budget.
I actually havent looked much into South America. I was originally interested in going to Asia. However, as of late I’ve been looking around the world for places t travel and South America interests me quite a bit. Ill send ya a message or you can add me on facebook
