Trip 6 Itinerary cont. (October 2013 - October 2015)

- I lived in Colombia. In March/April 2015 I visited Brazilian Amazon cities, rivers and towns, French Guiana, Suriname and Guyana. It was amazing!

This is an awesome itinerary for traveling the Brazilian Amazon from Colombia and then taking the route north up to the Guyanas. From Bogota - Colombia a 2hr flight will get you to Leticia in the Colombian Amazon. From there you can cross the border to Tabatinga - Brazil and either get on a ferry heading downriver or take a flight to somewhere else to start your journey. My route and itinerary follow the places on the map in a logical order!

- Ecuador is one of the hidden gems of South America, it never ceases to amaze me!

(July 2015) This is an itinerary for backpacking some of the places in Ecuador's mountains south of Quito, a beautiful part of the country. Other places could easily be added to it, it's just what I did at the time. There are 2 sections to this trip, the first part overland from Quito down to Cuenca. I flew back up to Quito from there to get to the other places. You could keep going south to Peru instead.

- I backpacked in Bolivia and northern Argentina for 5 weeks.

(September/October 2015) The aim of this trip was to get from Tacna - Peru through Bolivia to northern Argentina and eventually Buenos Aires. The route taken of course was to see some new places along the way!
