Where you went:
Backpacking in Argentina, Bolivia and Peru.
When you went:
Summer 2012 for three months.
What you saw:
Machu Picchu, Nazca Lines, Paracas National
Reserve Lake Titikaka, Buenos Aires, Tigre, Iguazu Falls National Park,
Mendoza and the vineyards (often on a bike - hilarious after all the wine
tasting!), Salar de Uyuni, Potosi and the silver mine, Sucre - cultural
capital of Bolivia.
Funniest thing you heard/saw/did:
I made several language hiccups resulting either in sheer horror or the
never ending amusement of the locals - luckily, the latter happened more often!
Your favourite thing about the holiday:
A complete lack of routine and not knowing what the next day would bring.
Travelling in overnight coaches with reclining seats and meal service.
Sandboarding, sleeping in a jungle lodge, eating asado and drinking
