After 4 months traveling through Asia (India, Nepal, Thailand and Cambodia) and 2 months traveling through Oceania (Australia and New Zealand) I had reached the equator of my 1 year trip around the world. The time has come to leave the land of the maori and, aboard a plane of the company Quantas I took in Auckland, crossed the largest of the oceans of our beautiful planet, the Pacific, to land in Santiago de Chile and thus start the 6-month journey that I spent traveling through South America.
And how beautiful is South America! For half a year I traveled through Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Paraguay and Brazil, and here I detail what, for me, were the best places I went through:
The Iguazu Falls (Argentina and Brazil) A true wonder of nature. If you travel to South America I recommend that you do everything possible to include in your itinerary a visit to the Iguazu Falls. You can visit them from Brazil (Foz do Iguacu) or from Argentina (Puerto Iguazu), and I assure you they will leave you speechless.
The Perito Moreno Glacier (Argentina) Again a colossal phenomenon that Mother Nature gives us: the glaciers. Its blue color will hypnotize you and its crunches will make you shiver. If you go through Argentina and decide to skirt the Andes towards the South, you cannot miss it. Bus up Calafate and visit the Perito Moreno. Long live the Argentine Patagonia!
The Atacama Desert (Chile) The driest desert in the world is in northern Chile. It hasn't rained there since the last time there were two days of good weather in a row in Dublin. A dry and rocky landscape that will make you believe that you are on another planet. The sunset from the Valley of the moon It is a gift from the Gods that you will never forget.
