Well, here we go again. After years of traveling in South East Asia and the last 5 years in Europe and North America, I have decided that is it time to go back to South America. I am leaving on the 10th of September and the return date is wide open.

So all my stuff is in different storage places (thanks Dave, Michael, Geoff, Paul, Steve and Andy - I know what a pain in the ass that is and it means a lot to me), ticket is purchased, the travel stuff is spread out in the bedroom (how do I fit all this stuff in one backpack?) and the plans are made. Hang on, what plans? This time it is open travel and I have a rough idea what I want to do. But you know how it is with these trips. The only plan I have is to get from the most southern part in the world to the most northern part in Alaska - so doing the Trans American Highway. Trip of a life time and I know it will be a blast.

Just so you get an idea on what is was in 1982, the

Machu Piccu Train station 1982
last time I was in South America, here are two photos from that time. One from me and one from the train station in Machu Piccu. As you can see I look a lot older and I am sure the station doesn't look the same.....

Hope you enjoy following me on my trip and drop me a line or two.

I've been on the same south to north trip that you're now doing, but it's been four years now, and I've only made it to Arequipa, Peru. I fell off my travels and have been living here, on and off, for about a year, enjoying a good life and trying to catch up on old blogs from a couple of years ago in northern Argentina, That photo of the MP train station is classic--you're going to be shocked at the glitz it now is. Hey, maybe we'll have a meet up here in South America--I'll probably be on the continent for another couple of years. Buen viaje!
