6 months backpacking around South America
In February 2022 I embarked on a 6 months journey around South America. For 6 weeks I traveled around Colombia, then I spent 6 weeks in Ecuador, and after that another 6 weeks in Peru, after which I traveled through Bolivia for 3 weeks to finish my trip in Brazil where I spent 4 weeks.
Everyone keeps asking me: What was the best thing about South America? Or: Which was my favorite place?
It is so hard to highlight one, but some of my favorites are: Iguazu Falls in Brazil, Uyuni Salt Desert in Bolivia, Machu Picchu in Peru, the Amazon experience in Ecuador, Salento palm valley in Colombia, and my favorite city in South America has to be Rio de Janeiro!
