Lately it has been an uphill struggle to try and organise the trip that I am currently on, from flights to accommodation and budgeting. I have been training by riding as much as possible and the much-needed work that I have put in should pay off. My trip will take me to three new destinations that I have yet travelled: Rio, Brazil; and Arica and Antofagasta, Chile.

I have put together some ways and means of traveling for the first time travellers as well as sites that need to be seen and some items that might have been missed on the pre planning of the trip abroad.
