South America Cross-Continental Trip (June (25ish) 2014-March 2015)
So I'm planning a trip that will begin in Bogota, Colombia (flying in) and I will be spending a month and a half in Colombia and buying a 200/250cc dual-sport motorcycle over there while enjoying the world cup games with the rest of the country. I have family in two different cities in Colombia, and will thus be able to stay at their places for 2-3 weeks.
The rest of the trips revolves around driving through Ecuador and onto Peru, where I also have family members in various cities. From Peru -->Bolivia -->Chile-->Argentina-->Uruguay-->Brazil -->Venezuela -->Colombia
I plan to camp as much as possible, and drive by through the countryside more than staying in the larger cities. Hostels and couch surfing are other options that I'm looking at to lower the cost of the trip. I am fluent in Spanish (first language) and will have no problem communicating with anyone in the spanish speaking countries. I plan to spend more time in the countries with more to see (Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Argentina) but I'm still working on a preliminary schedule. I am hoping to save a significant amount of money (6-10K) for this trip and hope that you might as well too. I'm dying to have this kind of experience and would be STOKED to have other fellow travelers alongside in certain parts/countries. Let me know if you're interested
