Ultimate Travel Bucketlist: Central & South America

From Colombia to the tip of Chile and the Falkland Islands, If you're heading to South America, see what I've put on my Ultimate Travel Bucketlist!

My good friend Lisa, who travelled with me to Rome, recently went on a month long Peruvian excursion where she worked as a midwife. Her tales, have given me South America fever (The good kind). No longer is South America somewhere we pretended we’d run away to to avoid having to do English GCSE (you think I’m lying but there was serious talk about becoming Peruvian goat farmers).

Along with Central America, largely because I have another friend who works on a cruise ship in a function band, and if I see one more picture of him holding a strawberry daiquiri on a beach in December, I’m going to delete him on Facebook. It looks sickeningly lovely. There are places where the sea is WARM. In the world. Places exist. Where the sea. Is not cold. I know, incredible concepts, but please stay with me.

I don’t think I’ve left many out this time, but I have included some overseas territories as their own country. My basic goal for the Caribbean is to island hop between them for a month or so, maybe sailing, pretending to be a pirate… stopping off and wandering around. And to backpack from Mexico to Argentina. If you have any more suggestions, please comment!
