I'm embarking on a much wanted and needed trip around the world.
First stop is Bangkok; second stop Melbourne. There will hopefully be quite a bit of travelling around Southern and Eastern Australia, after which I will be flying to Buenos Aires. If I can, I am going to see the Iguazu Falls, then back to BA to fly to Lima. I hope to travel quite extensively in Peru, do the Inca Trail and volunteer in Cuzco.
