    I was so well behaved planning my South America trip. Had it all worked out how to see everything I want to see. And then I somehow managed to stay in Ecuador 6 weeks. Any tips on how to do Peru, Bolivia, Chile and half of Argentina in 10 weeks would be appreciated! Or maybe I’ll just have to be one of the many who change their flights!

      Wow, that’s a lot to do in 10 weeks! I haven’t traveled extensively in Chile or Argentina, and I’ve never been to Peru or Bolivia, but my advice would be either stay in South America longer in order to really see the things you want to see, or try to cut out a few things. Traveling too fast will burn you out. Let me know if you want any help finding blogs with a lot of info on the countries you’re traveling to and I’ll see who I can find.

    Something I do to maximize my vacation time is to look for flights that leave on Friday evening after work. I can get to my destination sooner and have more time to sight see and enjoy it.

      Definitely! If possible, that’s always a good choice. Even if you don’t have time to do anything besides get to your hotel that night, at least it means you’re ready to go in the morning, no time wasted.
