You couldn't be in better hands than the ones of a native South American. Be my guest, your fantastic journey to South America begins here.
I was born and raised in South America and love it to the bone. Love its people, mountains, caves, beaches, rivers and jungles.
Love its food, love its smell, love its ancient ruins and colonial architecture, and above all, I love its raw, savage beauty.
In describing South America I might forget many interesting facts and reasons for you to go, but I would never forget to love it hard enough.
If you think I'm biased you are absolutely right, because I am raving fan of South America.
It's magic, it's wild...it's unique!...

By the way, ever heard about this story?..
A tourist was being led through the jungles of Brazil.

"That depends," replied the guide, on how fast you carry the flashlight.

Sorry for the mess.
Got completely mixed up with "Howdy", "Good day mate", "What's the crack" and God knows what else I've picked up on the road.
Besides, where I live now, we say "traveller" instead of "traveler", "humour" instead of "humor" and so on, (we drive on the "wrong" side of the road as well).
We also drink Guinness around here. Not that I complain though.
