As we head towards the airport for the next leg of our gap year, here’s a selection of some of our favourite pictures from Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil.
Our previous experience of South America in 2011 was a three weeks holiday in Venezuela. Honestly don’t even think of going there. All the time we felt on edge, and we were robbed twice, mugged once and held up by armed soldiers too. Now thankfully our views on this vast continent have been transformed. The last last eight weeks have been an amazing and inspiring time. We’ve been so lucky to experience unique places and everywhere (well apart from one evening walk in Salta) we have felt safe and welcomed.
