I'm from Dublin, Ireland, looking to take a career break in 14 to go travelling around s. america.
Setting up this account has officially marked the start of my travel research! My preliminary plan is to fly to Brazil / Argentina towards the end of Jan 14, then make my way south to the southern point of Argentina / Chile. And then see how far north I can make it with the intent of making it back to Dublin for xmas 14.
I would be very interested in hearing from anyone who is in the process of planning a similar trip or has traveled s. / c. america before. This is my first time backpacking and i'll need all the advice / recommendations I can get.
