Goodbye Peru, hello Chile!

14.01.2013 - 20.01.2013

sunny 28 °C

After spending two weeks in Lima, the time to go has come. I have to admit I absolutely adore the city and its habitants, and in a way I’m sad having to leave. But of course, I came here to travel and in that way, I’m eager to start moving around, to travel and get to know much more about South-America.

It does feel very strange leaving the hostel after 2 weeks. In many ways, it feels exactly like 2 weeks ago, when I was leaving Belgium. The mix of leaving everything and everyone that was familiar, with the excitement towards the unknown and new adventures.

Now, I’m writing you from the bus to Tacna (in the deep south of Peru), a 20h drive from Lima. From there, it will take me about 2 hours more to cross the border with Chile, until I get to Arica. In Chile, I’m planning to visit Arica and the surroundings (incl. Lauca national park) and the Atacama desert. Afterwards, I’ll continue to Argentina.

I’m not going to make too many promises about all the other places I hope to visit. During the last days I was making the planning and there are just too many things I would like to see, but time is limited. I suggest you follow my blog and find out, together with myself, in what places I end up…
