Ok, ok… so I admit, not on Just ExploRen so much, for which I apologise, but recently, I have been so busy and focused on saving, planning, and booking places for my round the world trip that begins in South America!

Well thats all I have booked so far!
To be honest, its probably as planned and booked as I’m going to get for this whole trip as lots of it will be looser.
I’ve only booked all this, as its saved me from going out in Alice spending money!, it will be my first time in S.America and bookings will make me feel more comfortable while getting used to foreign continent by myself, and also it’s shoulder to high season around that time, because of Christmas/NY, and I didn’t want to get to those places to find myself homeless, and/or killing time and money waiting for a thing I want to do.
The only other things Im going to book is Rio and Carnival tickets for February, and Iguassu Falls.
So what do you guys think? Exciting yes?
