We start in Bariloche, Argentina (via Miami, via Buenos Aires) to ski, stay/learn at Spanish school (http://www.spanishsinfronteras.tk/index.html) and unwind from the corporate grind to ease into nomad life admist the lakes and mountains. That’s all I know for sure.

I’d like to explore the region from Lakes into Patagonia (can’t do it all I know I know), cross over into Chile, work my way up into Peru and then to Ecuador and back home. You say “Dana, that is not enough information.” Here’s more then, but of course anything can happen:

Explore some of Patagonia, go over to Chilean side from there  (Puerto Montt?) and work way up through Lakes, Concepcion, Santiago (not for long, hate cities), Vin Del Mar or other beach vicinity a little, play polo I hope at Ocoa (Central Chile, Aconcagua valley, hour from Santiago), visit Easter Island, fly back for Calama, Atacama Desert then Arica into Peru, for Lake Titicaca not too far off from Chile, say goodbye to my dear bodyguard at some point in all this as he goes to Bolivia, and I travel solo or maybe with new friends I may meet to other sites, take jungle/shaman experience perhaps (Hamilton Souther or Gilber, Sacred Heritage – google them), then into Ecuador, Cuenca, Parque Nacional Sangay, Avenue of Volcanoes, Cotapaxi, Banos, Otavalo, maybe try surfing in Montanita, and yes, Galapagos, fly out of Quito…hitting unplanned sites/schools along the way…I have until October 26th for my return flight out of Quito, but that can be changed too. I may pop back into Northwest Argentina from the Peru or Chile but…I hope this is less of a race against time and more of a wander, but already this sounds nuts.
