South America – Top Five

Having returned from an adventurous trip to South America, I’ve decided to share with my friends the usual countdown of the Top 5 places I visited. Over the next few weeks I will share with you my pictures and stories…although nothing can do justice to the actual experience of being there in the flesh!

South America is indeed a land of extremes. During my short but very productive 3 weeks, I had the privilege of visiting:

– the world’s biggest and wildest New Year’s Eve celebrations

– the world’s largest waterfalls

– the world’s most beautiful bus ride

– the world’s driest place

– the world’s best place for stargazing

– the world’s largest salt flats

– the world’s highest capital

– the world’s most dangerous road

– the world’s highest lake

– the world’s most famous, spectacular and challening hiking trail

– the (new) world’s most ancient ruins

– and arguably, the world’s most beautiful city; certainly according to this Brazilian saying: “God created the world in six days, and on the seventh he created Rio.”

Stay tuned as I count down the top five among the following places:

– Rio de Janeiro & Foz du Igassu, Brazil

– Puerto Iguazu & Salta, Argentina

– San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

– Salar Uyuni & La Paz, Bolivia

– Cuzco, Machu Picchu and Lima, Peru
