Sink or Swim? The trek that nearly broke me.

Before I left Australia I did a very miniscule amount of research for South America. The night before I flew out I stayed up until midnight (3 hours well past my old lady bed time) and did a crash google search of top things to do in South America (I haven't looked at my research… Continue reading Sink or Swim?
