Backpacking South America – In Pictures (Part 1 of 2)

Happy Travellers

Bolivia, Chile

Earlier this year, Mala and Anna decided to go on a South America Adventure with us. They started in Bolivia, crossed the salt flats to reach the Atacama Desert in Chile and then the Andes to Purmamarca in Argentina. Before arriving to Buenos Aires, they spend a couple of days visiting the impressive Iguazu Falls. We were a bit jealous while looking after them during the journey, but at least we received hundreds of their amazing pictures. Now we share a small selection with you (click on any image to open the gallery). This is the first part of ‘Backpacking South America, A Truly Incredible Adventure‘:

1. What would be your first impression of South America if you start your adventure in a city like La Paz…
