So far I have the starting plan. I leave Dublin, Ireland on 2nd February 2011, fly to Madrid and from there on to Buenos Aires, Argentina. From there the plan is to travel up through South America, hopefully improving on my limited Español. I'll have about 40 days in South America as I have to be in Texas by the 12th March for the SXSW music festival. From there the plans are all in the brewing stages.
In the next few days I should have some kind of bag to carry most of my stuff but my latest purchase has been a Lowepro Vertex 100 camera/laptop bag along with my christmas gift of a pacsafe backpack protector that hopefully won't end up being necessary. Any two backup hard drives just to help ensure none of my precious photos get lost along the way. A Lacie rugged hard drive and the transformer styled, waterproof, Adata hard drive
I'm currently writing this blog whilst taking a break from researching a good trekking company with whom to visit Machu Picchu in Peru. Any advice on this would be much appreciated
I've set myself up on travbuddy.com and couchsurfing.org which should hopefully prove useful at some point in the coming months
