Thanks for your question
I flew to Buenos Aires on July 14 and had a loose itinerary planned but have changed my plans quite a bit!
Initially I wanted to travel Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Belize, Mexico, Cuba ....
I cut Chile and Paraguay instantly due to $$ and weather. I went from Argentina through Uruguay to Brazil and then back to Argentina.
I only have a bit over 3m left and I am STILL in Colombia, I have discovered I travel incredibly slowly. Which I love! So I don't think I will see all I want but I am okay with that. It has been amazing!
As safety is a concern I will also cut Venezuela and I am not sure if I will even get to Mexico, let alone Cuba! Aside from that it has been pretty close to my plan
Sorry for the long answer!
