I honestly thought that was why this thread had been bumped!
Not been to that one or the snowy one.
I'll let you decide why
I got bitten by a toucan when I was there.
And a giant mosquito.
Looked all over Buenos Aires for a gift for my mate and was overjoyed when I found a pendant with the Newell's Old Boys logo on it. Will look spiffing hung on his wall, I reckon...
Off to Lima tomorrow, then a final trip to Machu Picchu to finish things off. 10 days left before home, can't believe how quickly it has gone.
Aconcagua mate, must climb.
If anyone gives a shiny shite, I'm adding a few bits and bobs to my blog in regards to my recent travels to South America. Will add more over the coming days/weeks.
Feel free to have a look if you care. Linky.
Nice one Dave
Are you home now?
I am. Was bloody shattered at the end, getting up and down Machu Picchu nigh on killed me!
Good advice that it might be cold on a glacier.
Good stuff mate. I've only scratched the surface with South America, hope to return one day.
It honestly wasn't too bad until the wind started - that bastard was brutal, though!
Like sitting in the East Stand. You need a blanket and a flask.
Did one on the Boca/River stadium tours today. Thought you (and maybe some others) might like to read up and see if owt has changed. Linky.
I got a tour with a guide who spoke English. I was the only English speaker in the group so it was pretty much a private tour. I got to see the changing rooms (Sunday League standard) and get photos taken where the press conferences are. The one fact I remember was that the director's box has a settee at the front for Maradona.
Saw a picture of Boca's changing rooms and they looked well fancy, actually. Made me wish I'd paid that little bit more to go and see them! Must have had a makeover since you were there! River's stadium was a right dump, like.
Good man, enjoy the rest of it.
did you fly to Galapagos islands? any tips?
It's properly expensive, so, like, sell a kidney?
Not sure if mentioned but the Ciudad Perdida trek in Colombia is fantastic.
Mendoza wine region in Argentina.
Rurrenabaque, Bolivia to go on a jungle trek.
just looking at flights from Ecuador, £240 return... I assume when you get there it's steep too? would love to go and will be a shame to go all the way over to S America and not visit but yer, money could be an issue
If you've found a flight for £240 you've got a bargain. I didn't do it as, all in, it came to over a grand for a few days. As much as I'd like to have went, that was just too much for me.
