Most Memorable Travel Experience
3 months in South America!

Rio de Janeiro, the first stop on my round the world trip!

Hiking to the summit of Villarrica volcano, one of the most active volcanos in Chile, and looking down into the crater, hearing the rumbles from the lava and seeing the sulphurous gases rise from the crater. Then sliding all the way back down the ice cap on our bums to the bottom, awesome!

The incredible Iguassu falls, and taking the boat underneath the falls!

The view from Cerro Campanario in Bariloche, Argentina!

Hydrospeeding in Pucon, Chile!

Sandboarding in San Pedro de Atacama, Chile!

The 4 day 4x4 crossing across Bolivia to Uyuni, volcanos, lagoons, salt flats etc, unbelieveable landscape!

Carnival in Sucre, Bolivia. The whole city turned into one big water fight and we joined in with lots of waterbombs and supersoakers!

Homestay on Lake Titicaca with a lovely family and checking out the Uros Floating Islands!

My first of the 7 wonders of the world, 4 days hiking to Macchu Pichu, the lost city of the incas! Amazing!

Going on a crazy, adrenaline filled, dune buggy ride around the huge sand dunes of Ica, Peru, and also stopping off for some sandboarding!

White water rafting in Banos, Ecuador!

3 day homestay on the edge of the Amazon Rainforest with an amazing family, hiking through the rainforest and learning all about it, climbing waterfalls, eating strange things etc!

All the incredible wildlife encounters in the Galapagos Islands! Especially the snorkling with sea lions and turtles!

Seeing a huge leatherback turtle in Costa Rica laying its eggs in the sand, filling the hole and then going back into the depths of the ocean!

Canopy in Monteverde, Costa Rica!

Attempting to play football in the middle of the Costa Rican rainforest on the worst pitch imagineable! The end of the game turning into mud wrestling, a lot of fun!

Hiking to the Colorado river at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and back to the top in one day!
Profile
I graduated from University earlier this year and I've decided to take a couple of years out to travel the world, with the hope of reaching all 7 continents! I'm very easy going, down to earth with a good sense of humour and generally love life, especially when I'm travelling.

So ive been away 8 months now and its been an awesome adventure! Finally trying to upload all my photos to TB, could take a while!

Haha same here, I try to avoid TB. I am getting more and more broke by the day. There was a time I went to Egypt and Thailand. Now I only dream of weekend trips from Bangalore which include an easy-on-pocket government bus ride. :P
I finished training last week. Whee! And now I go travelling (not very far though hehe). Now I am supposed to go back to Uni to finish my thesis. Don't even ask what next.
I am glad you enrolled in masters. Congrats! :) x
