Travels through South America

Since 2001, I’ve traveled extensively throughout South America but only started blogging about it in 2012. Here are the regions I’ve traveled to. I’ve followed the Gringo Trail but also gotten quite far off the beaten track. I’ve lived in Argentina, Peru, and Chile, so that’s enabled me to really get to know the region.

I am happy to answer any questions you have about South America, especially if I haven’t posted on the city or region yet. Please reach out to me via my contact page.

Yes: I do want to visit Colombia and Brazil, hopefully very soon! ūüôā
