If I had to choose one continent to visit right now, it would most definitely be South America. I am lusting, hard. Once I have finished my tax qualifications, I think South America will be my continent of choice when I take an extended period of time off work to travel (hopefully in 2018!).

So, without further ado, here’s my ultimate South America bucket list!

  1. Say hello to a giant tortoise on the Galapogos Islands
  2. See the Moais on Easter Island

  5. Hike the W Trek in Torres Del Paine, Patagonia, Chile
  6. Cruise the Amazon river into the rainforest

  8. See the thundering Iguazú Falls,
  9. Experience Rio during carnival time, Brazil
  10. Visit a remote tribe

  1. I’ve been seeing a lot of South America pop up lately! I’m dying to visit! It looks like so much fun. Machu Picchu and the Salt Flats in Bolivia are definitely on my bucket list. They look absolutely amazing. I’ve seen a few Galapagos Island cruises too, which are crazily expensive but I’d love to go on one one day! And the swing too! Can I just come with you if you ever go hah?!
