Title: Patagonia (Argentina, Chile, maybe south Bolivia) in jan 2013
Post by: Sherise on Dec 24, 11, 07:54 PM
Hi am looking for a travel buddy to take (if he or she can afford) 3-4 weeks (or you can join me in part journey) leave to go to the places listed above. I haven't got a fixed date yet, and hence can accomodate the other person, but will need to make travel plans rather early like 6 months in advance in order to secure the leave and then start booking air tickets.

The budget really depends on the air ticket- if we can get it cheap ( 2k+) then possibly I think we can do it for 5k. If not it will probably be 6k.

Have been to south america before, but don't know Spanish, but will try to pick up more phrases this time round.

Hi Sherise,

I just came back from South America and would certainly love to go there
again next December.

Although I didn't go to Patagonia, I'm more keen on Colombia,
Ecuador and Peru, with the 5-day Inca trail to Machu Picchu the
grandstand finish.

Just in case you want to consider.

Hey madidas..
unfortunately I have already been to Peru hence unlikely to go again. But good luck, it should be fun.

I'll be asking you for tips to argentina and chile when I next see you! I can tell you some stuff my tour mates told me about Inca trail (the period you are going it's going to be real hot and there's hardly any shade along the trail, bring light clothes to cover you from burning!)

Sherise,

Do note that Torres del Paine NP has been closed due to a forest fire started by an Israeli tourist. Not sure when the activities in the park will return to normal.

Hi Sherise,

I'm keen on travelling to the places you mentioned.  Would you be able to travel in March 2012?  Emirates has a flight promo to Buenos Aires for around $1,928 return but the booking has to be made by 31 Jan.

I've never been to South America but am otherwise pretty well travelled.  I also have experience as a solo female traveller if that's relevant.

Do drop me an email at closetclearing2010@hotmail.com if you're keen and we can discuss further.  Thanks!
