Travel buddy to Hitchhike around Latin America - DEC - FEB
Posted October 30th, 2012 - 5:18 pm by from Lima, Peru (Permalink)
Hi guys,

I am currently living in Lima and am planning to hitchhike from here up to Rio de Janeiro for the Carnival.
The plan of the journey is very flexible but I was thinking of doing the following journey:

Lima - Ica - Arequipa - Tacna (All Peru); Arica - Valparaiso - Santiago de Chile (All Chile); Mendoza - possibly Patagonia or Cordoba - Buenos Aires - Santa Fe (All Argentina); Encarnacion - Asuncion - Ciudad de Este (All Paraguay); Iguazzu Falls - Sao Paolo - Rio de Janeiro (All Brazil) ...and then getting back through Bolivia (Santa Cruz, La Paz).

I am looking for travelling buddy to accompany me as I am sure thus it would be much more enjoyable experience.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and i dont wanna miss it.
Accommodation could be sorted via couchsurfing, transport is obvious but in exceptional cases we could get a bus.

I would welcome all the suggestions regarding journey (I dont even know if the plan is time-manageable etc.)

Hope to hear from anyone interested soon.

Happy travels everyone.

Hey Misho.
If you still have plan to go I want to do more or less same route. Now I stay in Cusco. In the beginning of December I think I will stay close to Arequipa. And next like you plan.
So we meet and to do part of travel together.
