Hi All! New to GAP, looking at Sth America in July!

Postby soulsearch » Wed Mar 31, 2010 8:20 am

Hi travellers,

25 year old, Aussie planning on going to Sth America n July.

Am particularly interested in volunteering!

Anyone have any particular tours they reccommend?
HAVE to see Peru and Argentina and would like to see Bolivia and Chile.

Fabulous countries you will have a great time - but bear in mind that is the deepest winter downSouth there at that time and it will be brrrrrrrfreezing!

I have done Absolute Peru - one of my fav trips - highly recommend it. And in Argentina I went all round Patagonia which is amazing.

Hey soulsearch. This is a great time to book a volunteer trip with GAP because there will be a discount on all vountours booked in April.

Still, it's hard because are so many to choose from! Let us know what you decide.

Hi guys,
Thanks for your response!

Am considering either Project Peru or Project Macchu Picchu and perhaps combining it with the Bolivian Crossing (12 day) but still deciding!

Just freaking out a bit as I've never travelled on my own before and have definitely never experienced a trip like this ie. hiking, culture, local homestays, shared accommodation etc.. I'm dying to do it but my nerves are starting to take over!!

It's okay to be nervous as long as it doesn't keep you from doing what you want to do. The excitement is why they call it an adventure!

Its natural to be nervous! But once you have done you will wonder why you didn't do it before.
Besides - once you have met your group you wont be on your own.
It sounds like the trip of a lifetime, enjoy!
