Team Brittanathan is Heading to South America

It's finally officially official! That picture right there is from me on a phone call that lasted over two hours to book flights for Jonathan and I to go to Peru, Chile, and Easter Island in June!

I've mentioned it before, but now things are a little more solidified, so this is the updated post. I am going to Peru to do volunteer archaeology and trail maintenance at Machu Picchu with REI Adventures. That trip lasts 10 days. After that I'll be returning to Lima for a few days to sight-see, including a tour to see the Ballestas Islands and the Nazca Lines! This is the flat I'll be staying in, one block from the beach!

After I leave Peru I'll meet up with Jonathan at the airport in Santiago and we'll hop on the plane to go spend five days on Easter Island! (I just found a page with cameras at the airport!) We'll be staying at one of these bungalows, which is RIGHT ON THE BEACH. I about passed out when I saw that! I'm hoping to have a few guided tours of nifty sites and then we'll have time to adventure on our own.

On our way back we have a 24 hour layover in Santiago, which wasn't planned originally, but I'm pretty excited about it. I found us another cute flat to stay in and we'll be able to keep our bags there while we go do some sightseeing. Jonathan wasn't originally going to be traveling with me but since he mentioned he'd love to go to Easter Island, we're making it happen!

Now to just keep on hustling and saving money for my End of the Earth trip next year! (Which I realized I need to blog about since it's pretty solid as well!)
