    • Hey Alain, I would love to but sadly I have moved on now! I have been so busy I’ve fallen behind a little on posting. Would certainly love to drop by if I make it back that way.

  3. Such a great idea! Very inspiring! I’ve just read your story on a local newspaper and there’s only one thing I disagree about all this thing: with all my respect, if I were your girlfriend I would not allow you to go…alone! Looool! I wouldn’t miss this trip for nothing!!!! This is simply a brilliant, awesome trip idea!!! I plan to travel the world in about 3 years time but as I’m a journalist my plan must be something related with my career. Anyway, Wonder why you missed Chile. It’s an awesome country with awesome food with unfortunatelly a low external touristical publicity. Anyway, hope you have an excelent time in the rest of your trip! I admire people like you a lot!!!!. Greetings from the south of the world!

    • Yes she was not best pleased about staying behind. I did venture to Chile, albeit briefly. Unfortunately I was due to work somewhere but was let down last minute – hence why I didn’t write about working there. A fantastic country though and it was a pleasure to visit Santiago and I especially enjoyed Valparaiso. Hope you follow your dream too – I am so glad I took this decision.
