From the 8th May 2013, I'll be in South America armed only with a backpack and my stupidity. The first stop will be Fortaleza on Brazil's North-East coast, and then after that I've loosely decided that I'm going to head clockwise round the coast towards Rio de Janeiro.
I'll be posting updates on Twitter (@alexharries) and sending photos up to alexharries on Flickr.com, so if you'd like to keep track of my daft shenanigans, those are probably the best places to look.
As I type this, I'm actually staying at my parents for a couple of nights (at the age of 31... Oh, the shame ;) while I do a last kit check, wrap up some essential Greyhead Designs business paperwork, and make sure I've got all my travelling ducks lined up in a nice row before I go.
Oh, and I'm completely bricking myself, but I know I have nothing to worry about as long as I'm sensible and look both ways before crossing the street. It's just pre-match jitters, I know :o)
Anyway, that's enough from me. I'll be listening on alexinsouthamerica at greyhead dot co dot uk if you want to drop me an e-male!
So I failed woefully at keeping this website up-to-date during my travels, but I've covered about a zillion miles, stayed in oodles of hostels, didn't die not even once despite the best efforts of the gringo-despising Bolivians and their food poisoning and lack of oxygen.
I'll be back in the UK next week when I may or may not put some of Munkeh Traveller's diary rantings onto the interwebs.
Wow, I was really rubbish at updating this page when I got back, wasn't I? Oh well, I'll post my photo galleries here soon. Possibly... :)
