[countup=20110614 dave's South American Odyssey]



An account of my escapades traveling throughout South America for 14 months. Or until my money runs out, whatever happens first. :o

I will be traveling with no real plans, just do things as they happen. The only thing is I do want to go to Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, February 17th until February 21st 2012. And do some volunteer work along the way.
