Traveling around South America for 6 months was one of the longest trips I have ever done in my life. Started from Colombia, I traveled through 7 countries from top to bottom, witnessed as the landscapes shifted from tropical to desert and from desert to mountainous, all in one trip.
It was one of the best trips I have done so far. I went into South America without knowing a word of Spanish and I came out pretty well-versed at ordering cafe con leche and get the coffee I want 😂.
Being inspired by all the different cultures I have experienced in South America, I have decided to write a complete backpacking itinerary for South America for those who have the luxury of time to get lost in one of the most vibrant and interesting continents in the world.
