I have never travelled alone. I've never left my home country as an adult. I'm terrified of flying. I don't speak a word of Spanish. But I want to challenge myself and experience the world.
I've made picrel as my first trip. I want to one bag for about 40-50 days through Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, one spot in Brazil, Namibia, Pretoria, and Singapore. I want to balance pre-planning and discovery.
At times I want to cycle hire and use the pinned locations as a base, particularly Montevideo and Buenos Aires.
Anyone that has been to any of these places, can you share with me some tips and hidden gems about them?
Is this a good first trip for someone looking to challenge themselves? I have no idea of how many days worth of clothing to bring, what types of clothing, how to be frugal, etc. But I want to learn.
