Trip 7 Itinerary (April 2016 onwards)

- In April 2016 I backpacked in Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay, and Braziil! I spent most the year living in Colombia!

The itinerary I decided upon was based on taking an overland route so as to see new places along the way! From Buenos Aires on the ferry across to Uruguay, then north through Argentina to get to Paraguay. Finally heading east out of Paraguay to a couple of places in Brazil and getting back to Colombia from there.

- I went to Peru in September / October, remote locations like Iquitos, Pucallpa, Tarapoto, Huanuco and Tingo Maria!

My route through the Peruvian Amazon was to work my way towards the Colombian Amazon! Starting the overland part in Huanuco and coming down the mountains into the Amazon jungle was fun. From there I just decided where I wanted to go and went there. I had planned my route and itinerary in advance so it was just a matter of execution and I'm a pro at that!
